Our Commitment to Serve and Invest
WE WILL DELIVER SOCIAL VALUE TO THE COMMUNITIES WE SERVE, MEASURED IN NET POSITIVE JOBS, SKILLS, CIVIC PRIDE AND INVESTMENT
Our Serve and Invest commitment ensures that we remain focused on our key objectives:
- To deliver social value to the communities we serve, measured in net positive jobs, skills, civic pride and investment
- To ensure the needs of the the communities in which our assets are located are reflected in the way we design and manage our destinations
- To strengthen relationships with community and third sector organisations, helping to maximise the potential of our investments
Our new objective to become Net Positive for socio-economic impacts by 2030 pushes our Serve and Invest commitment further.
As well as these group wide objectives we set asset specific KPIs and targets annually. These are part of the centre Positive Places Plans. Targets are designed to be locally relevant, although some targets are common across all assets - notably the target to deliver at least six community engagement events per annum, with at least four of these focusing on skills and employment for local people.
