Partnership and Collaboration

Being a brilliant and trusted partner sits at the heart of our mission to support our customers to design and build sustainable developments where people thrive. We understand the needs and expectations of our supplies are changing rapidly as they face their own challenges of how to live and work for a sustainable future.

We aim to be a trusted partner and collaborate to support the supply chain by:

Establishing common goals, working with integrity and professionalism to uphold our values
Achieving excellence in partnership feedback annually
Communicating and sharing our ESG progress to drive change and grow confidence in our Group

We are focused on building visibility of our supply chain and understanding our impact.

We will invest in responsible procurement by:

Improving the transparency of our supply chains
Building the knowledge and expertise of our team in supply chain management
Maintaining zero modern slavery in our supply chain
