Grosvenor launches UK social impact strategy
Grosvenor Property UK (GPUK) has launched a comprehensive social impact strategy in a bid to expand its ambitions in terms of doing good for the environment and its communities.
After extensive research and consultation, its ‘People Positive’ strategy “advances how the business focusses and maximises its positive impact through its core activities”, the commercial property giant said.
The strategy concentrates on three priorities: Improving wellbeing in the places GPUK’s makes and manages; helping local economies thrive by championing inclusive growth and diversity; and maximising the positive impact of our people and partners
This includes the effects the wellbeing of key groups of people -- workers, residents and visitors -- in each of the places we operate in.
“People Positive formalises an approach to the long-standing work GPUK delivers with, and for, the communities it is a part of. Through a more granular understanding of local needs, the business can now make better informed decisions and more effectively direct its resources across its places and through its teams and partners”, it said.
It noted that while creating impact through its core business is a priority, strategic philanthropy will also play a part and GPUK will continue to deliver its £1 million+ Greener Futures programme.
James Raynor, CEO, Grosvenor Property UK, commented: “We want to have a genuinely long-term, positive impact on people and communities. But this isn’t something we take for granted as an automatic by product of what we do.
“So we’ve expanded our sustainability ambitions to encompass a business-wide approach to social impact enabling us to understand, measure and maximise our impact. Social impact will now be as much a part of decision making as commercial and environmental considerations – ensuring people and planet are at the centre of our business.”
