The world has to change. And at Stanhope, we’re changing everything we can.

To create better places for a better future.

As a Certified B Corp, we’re using our business as a force for environmental and social good. Our vision is to leave a legacy of sustainable buildings and urban places, loved by the communities that live and work there, and responding to the urgency of the climate crisis we all face.
We can’t solve everything, but we can take a collaborative approach with our partners and peer group in the UK property and construction industry to do our part and make a difference. In evaluating our responsibility, we look beyond our own operations, to the indirect impact we make.
Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) factors require a long-term commitment. Sustainable development has been embedded into the foundations of our business for over 25 years. Over decades we have built a trusted, collaborative network of partners that share our commitment to responsible, ethical action. These partnerships build our insight and amplify our impact.

Real progress. Real evidence.
