Being responsible is first and foremost about making the company strong and successful. Land Securities do this by working in the smartest way possible to meet the needs and expectations of everyone affected by what we do. This is about making a real difference to the communities we operate in.

As part of our investment in Victoria we are facilitating significant economic regeneration and proactively strengthening the local community through our London Corporate Responsibility programme.

We have a focus on supporting employability – Our Employment Strategy, launched in 2011, has created jobs, apprenticeships and training opportunities for local people on site at 62 Buckingham Gate. Working in partnership with our on-site contractors, Sir Robert McAlpine, candidates have undergone our ‘Pre-employment into Construction’ project, undertaken work experience and gone on to find employment.

Through organised walks, talks, site tours and events at 62 Buckingham Gate we are bringing local community groups, residents and schools on the Victoria regeneration journey.
