Making a positive difference

At British Land, we do what is right, not what is easy. 

Enriching the lives of individuals, communities and business, today and in the future, is something we take seriously. Our world is changing, and it’s our job to make the changes for the better.

Working at British Land, people feel proud of what they are part of. Our 2020 sustainability strategy is embedded in everything we do – promoting wellbeing, connecting with communities, designing for a changing world and growing local skills and opportunities.

Making a positive difference is important to everyone at British Land. That’s why we offer all British Land colleagues up to four days’ paid time off work for volunteering each year, £750 match funding for fundraising and 50% match funding for payroll giving, up to £5,000 per person per year.

Around 90% of British Land people volunteered in our local communities last year, including our annual Community Day and skills-based volunteering, which gives local charities and schools access to our best resource – the professional skills of our people.

Our award-winning community programme and skills initiatives benefit thousands of people every year. Our industry-leading energy and carbon reductions resulted in British Land being named European Sector Leader in the Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark three years running.
