Launching our new Net Positive Objective

24 Mar 2017

I am delighted to be able to announce Hammerson’s Net Positive initiative this week. We are setting out a new objective under Hammerson Positive Places, to become Net Positive for carbon emissions, water demand, resource use and socio-economic impacts by 2030.

We are also including the impacts of our investments so everything we do across the business and in all operating countries contributes to our Net Positive objective.
