Our performance

Optimising the delivery of commercial and social benefit

Values and purpose: the driving force of our 2020

Looking back on our achievements in 2020, four key themes stand out:

  1. We provided significant support to our tenants and communities dealing with the impact of Covid-19.

  2. Financially our results were poor by our recent standards, but contextually resilient.

  3. We have continued to pursue our long-term agenda to optimise both commercial and social benefit across our activities.

  4. We remain in a very strong financial position, enabling us to both weather the storm and calmly assess an unprecedented range of threats and opportunities with a view to continuing to invest for the long term.
