Our 2018/19 annual report and set of accounts was published in autumn 2019, and can be viewed here.
We take into account our impact on the natural and physical resources on which our business depends (for example, forestry, agricultural land, the seabed and foreshore). We also consider the value delivered by non-financial capitals (our people, networks and relationships) and are currently developing a way of measuring this wider impact.
Alongside this we are working with Scottish Land & Estates and Scottish Wildlife Trust to trial the Natural Capital Protocol with tenants’ land-based businesses at Glenlivet.
We support projects which
- Inspire long term thinking across our portfolio (rural, marine, coastal, urban assets) and in the communities where we do business
- Generate lasting benefits for people, organisations and communities in Scotland by always considering the ‘bigger picture’
- Enhance or protect our natural assets to promote the long-term health of our land
- Support the commercial activities of our business partners and tenants
- Work with partner organisations and community groups to develop skills and drive business growth
The projects tend to fall into two areas:
We encourage activities that protect and enhance the natural environment on which our tenants’ businesses depend. This includes work such as ecosystem restoration, conserving Scottish wildlife, and responsibly managing land, freshwater, marine and coastal habitats.
Much of the property we look after and the businesses on which we depend for our income in Scotland are in remote and isolated communities. We want to support these communities in staying economically and socially viable so they can continue to attract investment, grow businesses through innovating and diversifying, and attract new people.
