Launch of Social Impact Strategy


We are pleased to launch our Social Impact Strategy, building on our Sustainability Statement of Intent "The Time is Now" launched in May 2020.


Our strategy sets out how we will deliver the third pillar of our Sustainability Statement of Intent, namely to create a lasting positive social impact in our communities and £10 million of social value by 2030.


Our strategy is intrinsically linked to Our Roadmap to Net Zero, recognising the need to support a just transition to a low carbon economy. We've incorporated our approach to diversity and inclusion within our social impact strategy. Our approach is underpinned by four pillars:


·    Enabling healthy and inclusive communities

·    Championing diverse skills and accessible employment opportunities

·    Supporting the growth of local business and social enterprise

·    Connecting people with urban nature


For further detail see our Social Impact Strategy


Nick Sanderson, Chief Financial and Operating Officer and Chair of the Social Impact Committee said:


"We want to build a sustainable legacy for our great capital city with positive social impact at its heart, whilst also supporting a thriving economy for London's future. We have always worked hard to maintain sustainable relationships with our communities and this strategy sets out clear commitments and actions against which we will hold ourselves to account as we strive to deliver our social value vision."
