We are delighted to introduce our ESG policy, demonstrating LHBT’s commitment to ensuring our activities put Environmental, Social and Governance considerations at the forefront of our work.
The Trust’s guiding principles are to provide deep and lasting positive social impact and sustainability is at the core of the heritage work we do. Now, more than ever, we recognise the critical part which re-use and re-purposing of historic buildings has to play in a sustainable future.
Our ESG policy clearly sets out the ways in which the LHBT will develop positive environmental and social strategies on each project and, how we as an organisation, operate with transparency and integrity.
We recognise that these are evolving issues and we are committed to continual learning and measurement of our progress to ensure our policy is fit for purpose and aligned with best practice and relevant regulation.
