Our sustainability strategy

At Landsec we do more than build, manage and operate buildings. We're also working to enhance the health of our environment and improve quality of life for our people, customers and communities - now, and for future generations.

The buildings and construction industry accounts for almost 40% of all emissions. The link between the health of our environment and people is increasingly clear, and our built environment has a powerful impact on our lives - it is where most of us spend a staggering 90% of our time.

That is why at Landsec we build well, live well and act well. 

Our vision

We will design, develop and manage buildings in ways that will enhance the health of our environment and improve quality of life for our people, customers and communities now and for future generations.
