We’re delighted to have supported Watkin Jones in the development of their integrated annual report for which they won the Small Cap Sustainability Reporting award from IR Magazine. Building on their Future Foundations ESG strategy that sits at the heart of everything they do, the award reflects the skill of their team in producing clear investor-facing communications about ESG issues.
For two consecutive years, Buchanan has provided ESG consultancy to Watkin Jones. We carried out interviews with senior management to understand shifts in the areas that matter most to the Company and provided advisory to the ESG steering committee.
Watkin Jones is the UK’s leading developer and manager of residential for rent, with a focus on the build to rent (‘BtR’) and student accommodation sectors.
We are pleased with their progress over the past two years, including their recent launch of ESG targets. These targets focused on three key pillars of future people, future places and future planet.
