Putting a value on social impact and climate change

Landsec has set itself a target of generating £25m of social value by 2025.

The REIT, which announced its full-year results this morning, set aside a section of its announcement to the market to outline its investment in social impact projects and commitment to reducing the impact of the built environment on the planet.

The group this year, through its various partnership with charities such as Bounce Back and NJC, has helped more than 1,200 long-term unemployed and ex-offenders back into work, hitting its long-term target a year early.
