Sustainability Report 2015


We are pleased to present Hammerson's Sustainability Report for 2015. This report sets out our performance in 2015 and looks back at the past five years as we come to the end of the medium term targets we set in 2010.  We also set out our plans for 2016 and beyond. 

"I am immensely proud of Hammerson’s sustainability achievements not just in 2015 but through the last ten years. As a market leading property company we recognise our responsibility to be a leader on this issue. This means embedding sustainability into all areas of the business and all of our projects. The results presented here demonstrate what can be achieved with this approach. However, the is undoubtedly more to do and more that we can do. I look forward to sharing further plans and positive results as our sustainability journey continues.”

David Atkins, CEO
