Environmental & Sustainability Policy

This policy sets out the environmental and sustainability goals and aims for London Block Management Limited (“LBM”).  LBM recognises that its business activities have direct and indirect impacts on the environment.


We are committed to sustainable development (meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs) as a guiding principle within our work. Concern for the environment is an integral and fundamental part of this commitment. Our aim is to reduce the impact on the environment from our operations.


LBM regards the promotion of an environmental strategy as a key part of operating a successful business. We appreciate that we have a responsibility to work mutually with internal and external parties to deliver continual improvements in environmental performance.




The Company


In our role as a block manager, we aim to promote good governance in all our managed properties. Through our work with residential blocks in London, we are in a position to promote the wider sustainability agenda. We will assess the environmental impacts of our operations and set objectives and targets in order to improve our environmental performance. We will regularly review these targets and in order to ensure that they are being met, LBM will:


  • Implement all reasonable measures to comply with relevant environmental legislation and other requirements

  • Strive to make continual improvements in environmental performance and reduce the use of energy, water and other resources;

  • Provide adequate resources to enable environmental objectives to be developed and delivered.

  • Take appropriate steps to prevent pollution and minimize our negative impacts on the environment and to conserve natural resources. LBM focuses on obtaining local blocks – besides being able to provide a superior level of hands-on service, it results in much reduced travel levels. We aim to use public transport services as a means of transport as much as possible.

  • Aim to minimise paper and energy consumption in our offices, and by extension to sites under our management.

  • Only use recycled and / or sustainably sourced mixed paper stock when it is necessary to provide printed material.

  • Train, educate and inform our employees about environmental issues that may affect their work.

  • Undertake annual reviews of our objectives, targets and performances where necessary, updating this policy and any procedures when appropriate.

  • Provide appropriate resources to meet the commitments of this policy.




Employees at all levels must recognise that they have an important part to play in the success of this policy, by:


  • Taking all reasonable care to prevent harm to the environment

  • Turning off computers and other electrical equipment when not in use

  • Making sustainable choices and utilising information received through environmental and sustainability workshops to re-use and recycle accordingly.

  • Ensuring that all environmental incidents are promptly reported





Our aim at LBM is to improve environmental performance, which can only be achieved if suppliers also adopt similar policies. Where appropriate, LBM will expect its suppliers to:


  • Develop and implement an effective environmental policy

  • Comply with all relevant environmental legislation

  • Take responsible steps to prevent environmental damage and to conserve resources from their activities

  • Strive for continual improvement in their own performance on the area of environmental management


The Company, along with its staff and suppliers, are encouraged to think about the environmental impact of all their activities and to take the environmentally-friendly approach whenever possible.
