Sustainability policies and guidance

We’ve created a number of procedures and policies to make sure we act responsibly in everything we do.

Our Sustainability Charter and Sustainability Brief for developments are designed to facilitate productive discussions with our supply partners, driving up minimum standards and increasing collaboration. Through application of our Sustainability Charter in procuring contracts and projects, we ask all our partners to commit to our partnership pledge which outlines our non-negotiables, such as providing safe, comfortable and healthy working conditions for our partners’ employees.
