“Companies must start to justify their worth to society, with greater emphasis placed on environmental and social impact rather than just straight economics.”
- Dick Dusseldorp, 1973 At Lendlease, making a difference in our local communities is part of what we do everyday. Through our social value campaign #ALittleHelpToThrive we’re sharing stories of all the ways we’re creating value around the world together with our partners.
$250m of social value by 2025
We’ve set ourselves a target to create $250 million of social value by 2025.
We’re doing this through our shared value partnerships and Community Grants program, which are supported by the Lendlease Foundation, as well as other initiatives, such as FutureSteps, which is funded by the business. Importantly, our social value target focuses on initiatives that go above and beyond any project or asset contractual obligations.
We’ve engaged global experts to put in place rigorous methodologies to measure and report on the social value we create.
We report the progress against our target each financial year. Since launching our social value target in 2020, we have created $107.3m of social value through the work of our shared value partnerships. We are well on track to achieve our target, with 42.9 per cent achieved at the end of FY22.
