Our ESG commitment

Our dedication to running a responsible business is vital. It underpins the way we operate and is an integral part of who we are and what we do. Our approach to ESG will be a critical factor in measuring and managing our financial performance, resilience and ability to meet the heightened expectations and needs of our stakeholders.

Our aim is to ensure that minimising our impact on the environment is at the heart of everything we do. We want to ensure that C&R is not only a great place to work, but has a positive impact on our guests, retailer customers and operators and the wider community. Our ESG strategy is developed and reviewed by our ESG Committee headed by Non-Executive Director Laura Whyte, and supported by Non-Executive Director Katie Wadey, the Chief Executive, the Director of Guest & Customer Experience, the Managing Director of Snozone, and representatives from our asset management and HR teams. The Committee meets quarterly and receives updates on activities across the business and on the progress made against targets. The Committee also reports to the Board on the progress made against our strategy on a quarterly basis.

We have doubled down on our efforts on this important issue. We've significantly reduced power and electricity consumption and remain on track to deliver against the targets in the Paris accord or better. Over the last 5 years we have invested over £1 million in energy efficiency projects, which have achieved over 7,600 tCO2e of savings to date. We've got to 0% of our waste going back into landfill and we've saved a significant amount of water through active and careful management.

In addition to our environmental focus, we have developed Community Wheels of Support for all of our shopping centres. Through this initiative we actively support a large number of local events across our portfolio every year, benefitting many good causes.
