L&Q’s vision is that everyone has a quality home they can afford, and our mission is to combine our social purpose and commercial drive to create homes and neighbourhoods you can be proud of.
The overarching aim of our social responsibility (SR) agenda is to demonstrate our social mission by using our commercial drive to integrate social and environmental considerations across our operations with a view to delivering business efficiency and social benefit.
The drive is for SR at L&Q to be an indicator of quality management whilst also complimenting the vision of the business and the strategy of the L&Q Foundation.
Our new SR strategy is underpinned by a series of commitments and performance reporting covers the following impact areas:
Supporting the creation, growth and sustainability of successful places.
Incorporating social sustainability principles in our development and supporting place based community activities through our wide social sector partnerships.
Supporting the business to be responsible for the environmental impacts of its operations. Find out more in our environmental policy (124kb pdf).

Developing an environment in which employees can give their best and be themselves.
Creating a workplace which develops employees’ skills and aspirations, prioritises their health and wellbeing and promotes diversity and inclusion at work and beyond
