British Land is a leading UK commercial property company focused on London Campuses and Retail & Fulfilment assets throughout the UK. It has a significant development pipeline, including 53 acres at Canada Water, one of the UK’s largest and most sustainable regeneration projects. Its strategy is to provide well-connected, high-quality, and sustainable buildings within an attractive environment with great amenities and strong local connections.
British Land has set a target to achieve a net zero carbon portfolio by 2030 and is focused on reducing the embodied and operational carbon emissions across its portfolio. Its ability to deliver this is a clear competitive advantage, as more and more of its customers prioritize sustainability.
- Halve embodied carbon intensity in developments, to below 500kg CO2e/sqm.
- Ensure residual embodied carbon emissions are compensated for.
Since 2021 we have helped British Land offset residual carbon emissions using high-quality carbon credits, towards its net zero target.
We ensured that all carbon credits were:
As a result of our work together, British Land has been able to compensate for residual embodied carbon emissions across two developments: 100 Liverpool Street at its Broadgate Campus which has received a host of accolades including ‘Green Building Project of the Year’ by Business Green and was nominated for the Stirling Prize, and 1 Triton Square, at its Regent’s Place Campus.
We have also worked with the team to develop a set of offsetting principles, so that as British Land continues to reduce and offset carbon emissions, the residual footprint is always offset through high-quality carbon credits from projects that deliver positive outcomes for the climate, but also for biodiversity and local communities.
Our goal is to deliver 1 billion tonnes of emissions reductions
