Better Performance

Our vision and purpose have helped us to deliver one of the largest regeneration projects ever undertaken in Europe. Over the past 30 years, we have created a vibrant, healthy district where people, biodiversity, and the economy can flourish. We’ve monitored our progress carefully, and we report on it annually in a transparent and honest manner. The escalating climate and ecological crises mean that this reporting is more important than ever. Our comprehensive strategies for Climate Action, Beyond Zero Waste, Wellbeing, and Responsible Business include specific, measurable targets that will help us to deliver on our long-term commitments: becoming carbon net zero, delivering biodiversity net gain, and creating a world-leading circular economy.
