How we work

We're a business with a social as well as a commercial purpose. We make a profit so we can make a difference.

Places for People is a not-for-dividend business. For us, the payback comes from ploughing all of our profits back into the places we create, and seeing the difference that makes to people’s lives.  

ESG

We reduce our environmental impact. 

We’re committed to reducing the impact of our business operations on the environment. We work in cooperation with our customers, communities and other businesses to push the green agenda and generate efficiencies in everything we do.

Social impact

When you create places that work for everyone, you make a difference to society.

Our corporate responsibility principles, built around the themes of neighbourhoods, people, society and environment, guide our business strategy but they’re at the centre of our day-to-day work, too.
