Trusted Partners

We believe in the power of people and partnerships to create exceptional, climate-conscious places that deliver for our customers. In order to create space for London to thrive, we have a responsibility to ensure that we have a long lasting positive impact on the communities in which we work.

This year we continued to support our charity partnership with XLP by organising a series of charity challenges during our inaugural community week. More than 120 GPE team members came together to undertake numerous activities, including: completing the National Three Peaks challenge in 24 hours, trekking 42km along the South Downs way, walking a marathon through London’s Royal Parks, braving a tandem skydive from 13,000 ft and community volunteering. The team successfully raised over £82,000 and surpassed our initial target of £75,000.

We support XLP because it empowers young people from disadvantaged backgrounds to complete their education, avoid anti-social behaviour and ultimately become independent and confident contributors within their communities. Last year, the organisation helped 4,000 young people and their families. Our partnership with XLP is designed to help us reach our shared goal of creating social value in London, creating a positive impact in the areas where we operate and improving the lives of its residents and wider community.
