Better Places for People Commitment
"At Land Securities we have made a public commitment to ensure our buildings are designed and managed to maximise wellbeing and productivity. When designing a new development we consider the effect our space will have on everyone who encounters it - from office customers and their employees to retailers, their employees and their customers; from visitors to neighbours; from people today to those who may experience the building ten or twenty years from now. Given the amount of time employees spend at work, and the importance of leisure hours, it's vital our office and shopping centres are safe, healthy and enjoyable places to spend time. We think this is the right way to approach development, not least because it makes our assets more appealing, more valuable and more resilient. In short, designing to support wellbeing helps make us a more sustainable business."
Businesses in the built environment are being empowered to make the business case for environmental action and to measure the value they derive from such practices, thanks to a new UKGBC report.Read more >
