London Irish Partners is a responsible company and a responsible employer.

Responsible Ethos

Real Estate developments have an impact beyond the financial returns that can be generated for investors. We recognise we also need to consider the non-financial elements of our investments such as the human, social and environmental impacts. This recognition is key to creating long-term value for our shareholders and creating sustainable businesses for employees and other stakeholders.

London Irish Partners has always aimed to be a responsible company. We have a strong track record of environmentally positive projects, a reputation for transparent communications and have long been a supporter of local charitable organisations

For London Irish Partners, corporate responsibility is about being a responsible company, a responsible employer and a responsible investor.

We take responsibility for our actions, carefully consider how others will be affected by our choices and ensure that our values and ethics are integrated into our formal business policies, practices and plans.

Sustainability & Environmental

We believe that climate change is the single biggest threat to our planet and that we must take reasonability in tackling it. It is important we understand the environmental impacts our business has on present and future communities. We operate 4 core Sustainable and Environmental values:

  • Take responsibility for our present and future impact on the environment
  • Actively reduce our carbon footprint
  • Use sustainable resources where possible
  • Understand our impact on eco-systems

We are currently taking steps to become a carbon neutral company. But we know we must do more to reduce the impact of our own operations, particularly as our business is expanding.

Our ambition is to:

Reduce our carbon footprint, and work towards decoupling carbon emissions from business growth.

Our milestone target is:

To reduce carbon intensity, relative to turnover, by 15% by 2020 compared with 2012.
