Helical has a duty to care for the environment, which leads us to constantly seek innovative ways in which we can improve our performance with regards to sustainable consumption and resource use. We also believe there are business benefits in doing so through increased ability to secure planning consent, improved marketability of assets to prospective tenants and reduced operating costs of assets.
Our high-level corporate commitment to environmental issues is outlined in the Group’s Environmental Policy which can be found on this website. The Policy details our commitments across a range of impact areas and our development and property management activities.
Helical has set itself 31 targets for 2017-18 to guide the Environmental element of its Corporate Responsibility programme over the following 12 months. These targets addressed a range of impacts arising from our development and property management activities, including resource use and waste production, pollution, biodiversity, tenant engagement, flood risk and sustainable design and construction. A full list of these targets can be found on this website.
