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.
The Group’s corporate commitments to environmental issues are outlined in our Sustainability Strategy “Built for the Future” and the Group’s Environmental Policy, both of which can be found below.
Our strategy and supporting policy set out Helical’s commitments across a range of impact areas including its development and property management activities. The Group sets itself targets to guide its environmental responsibilities, including: resource use and waste production; pollution; biodiversity; timber sourcing; flood risk and sustainable design and construction.
