We manage our environmental and social impacts because there are business benefits in doing so. These benefits include increased ability to secure planning consent, improved marketability of assets to prospective tenants, reduced operating costs of assets, mitigating the risk of future legislation and regulation, and enhanced corporate reputation.
Helical uses Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) to monitor performance in meeting its objectives and targets. The purpose of these indicators is to establish a baseline of performance against which quantifiable improvement targets can be set and objectively assessed. Helical has been setting these targets since 2004.
Environmental performance is monitored across Helical’s development and asset management activities. Below is a summary of Helical’s progress in relation to our sustainability impact areas concerning the environment. Further commentary can be found in our most recent annual report.
