Corporate Client: British Land

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.

We partnered with Climate Impact Partners, because of their expertise and experience in carbon offsetting. Their team gave us real confidence and provided us with an extra layer of due diligence to ensure that the projects we selected met the highest standards and made a positive contribution to local communities and the environment. They’ve also helped us codify this into a best practice process that we can follow going forward.
