Reimagining the city for gender inclusivity
Hear more from Ellie Cosgrave about how we need to rethink our public spaces and challenge our existing assumptions about how to deliver cities which are successfully inclusive.
To support the world in limiting global warming to 1.5ºC we are transitioning to net zero carbon through our science-based carbon reduction target. Starting with The Forge, the UK’s first commercial development to have been designed in line with the UK Green Building Council’s definition of a net zero building, all our future developments will be net zero.
In November 2021, we published our £135m net zero transition investment plan (NZTIP). It will ensure we meet our near-term carbon-reduction target and the proposed Minimum Energy Efficiency Standard (MEES) of EPC B by 2030. We expect the plan to remove 24,000 tonnes of carbon emissions from our operations.
Our portfolio is now 100% compliant with the 2023 MEES EPC E or above requirements. In addition, 36% of our portfolio, 38% of offices and 34% of retail, are already meeting the proposed MEES of EPC B. With the sale of 1 New Street Square, which had an EPC B rating, the proportion of our portfolio meeting EPC B has reduced, however we are confident that as we continue with our NZTIP we will meet the proposed MEES.
The most effective way to decarbonise a building is to rethink its heating and cooling systems, that's why we're installing over 50 highly efficient heat pumps across our London workplace locations.
Our solar panel investment alone with reduce CO2 by 600 tonnes per year - and that's equivalent to planting 24,000 mature trees.
We already manage our buildings super efficiently, but through further building optimisation, we have reduced energy consumption by up to 10%. We're also experimenting with innovative AI technology to target a further 5-7% reduction.
The businesses and brands in our spaces make up around 40% of our total energy consumption. We're bringing them together to take action, share challenges and learn from one another.
We recognise that we also have an important role to play in influencing emission reduction of our supply chain and customers.
Find out more about our supply chain commitments here.
Every year we report on the entire range of measurable carbon emissions associated with our business, including the energy we use heat and power our managed properties, as well as indirect emissions such as embodied carbon produced by our suppliers.
Nearly 50% of whole life carbon emissions of a building occur before it even completes and this proportion is growing as the UK grid decarbonises. We therefore continue to design and construct our buildings to be net zero and in 2023 set an ambitious target to Reduce average embodied carbon by 50% compared with a typical building by 2030.
In 2023, we delivered The Forge in Southwark, the first UK net zero commercial building constructed and operated in line with the UK Green Building Council's (UKGBC) framework definition for net zero buildings. We continue to design and build net zero buildings.
We have been developing our net zero carbon strategy for our mixed-use urban neighbourhoods, aiming to apply the same level of diligence on our residential-led projects as we do for our offices. We looked at the life-cycle impact of our masterplans and set targets for embodied and operational carbon based on in-depth modelling and financial appraisal. We are confident that this sets us on a path to providing climate-resilient homes that will stand the test of time.
Using less energy is fundamental if we’re to meet our long-term emission targets and keep making our spaces affordable for customers.
A key way we can reduce carbon is by lowering the energy use of our assets, and this has the additional benefit of reducing our customers’ energy costs. In line with our ISO 50001 Energy Management System, every property we operate has its own energy reduction plan. These plans look at retrofitting energy-efficient equipment, optimising our buildings to use less energy, and working with our customers to reduce the energy they use in their spaces. Our ISO Certification can be found here.
We’re committed to increasing the amount of renewable electricity generated on our sites and pioneering low carbon technologies to improve the efficiency of our assets.
Since 2016 we have sourced 100% of our electricity supplies for the sites we manage through our corporate contract from REGO-backed renewable sources through our corporate contract with SmartestEnergy, and we are looking to move our procurement towards direct purchasing from renewable projects, through Power Purchase Agreements (PPA).
We’re proud to have been the first property company to join RE100, a group of influential businesses committed to renewable energy. We're seeing more on-site renewable generation come to life, including the installation of solar panels at eight of our retail sites.
In 2023 we also carried out 6 air-source heat pump feasibility studies and 7 renewable energy feasibility studies.

We recognise that despite our plans to transition to net zero, we’ll need to offset some unavoidable remaining emissions from our development activity. We’re focused on ensuring each credit is independently verified, transparent and traceable meeting UKGBC and SBTi principles. As such, we’ve joined The Lowering of Emissions by Accelerating Forest Finance (LEAF), a public-private coalition, supported by governments (UK, US and Norway), that seeks to mobilise finance to protect tropical forests at huge scale. LEAF carbon offsets are verified by Architecture for REDD+ Transactions (ART).
To ensure we have resilient assets that meet the changing needs of our people and customers, we invest in low-carbon, energy efficient buildings and we’re moving from dependence on gas towards all-electric solutions like air source heat pumps.
Part of becoming more resilient is being aware of the physical risks of climate change, like flooding, sea level rise and overheating. As the climate becomes hotter and wetter, we need to be sure our assets still deliver the same quality of experience to our customers. At present the percentage of our portfolio at high risk of extreme weather in the lead up to 2030 is 1.1% when measured by value. As climate change will gradually increase the level of risk over time, it’s important we continually reassess the risks.

The Task Force for Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD), launched in 2017, encourages businesses to build resilience to the possible outcomes of climate change. In line with the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures’ (TCFD) recommendations, since 2017 we’ve committed to assessing and reporting on material climate change risks across our portfolio, ensuring we have the appropriate strategy and mitigation plan in place.
