Community investment, as at 31 December 2010. Data compiled using the London Benchmarking Group model. It is the Group’s policy not to make donations to political parties or to incur political expenditure, within the meaning of those expressions as defined in the Political Parties, Elections and Referendums Act 2000, and the Group did not make any such donations or incur any such expenditure in 2010.

Environment

For all buildings in the UK and Jackson’s main premises in North America (Lansing and Denver), we assess the direct impact of our investment property portfolio and our occupied properties on the environment by monitoring their energy consumption, carbon dioxide emissions, water consumption, waste and recycling, and (for our UK offices only) business travel mileage.

Due to changes in the investment properties held in the portfolio during the period, comparisons with prior years’ environmental impacts are not meaningful.

Relative contribution of investment and occupied properties to our environmental impact (%)

Energy CO2 emissions Water Waste
Investment 70.8 65.6 79.4 90.9
Occupied 29.2 34.4 20.6 9.1

Energy consumption (’000 megawatt-hours)

Energy consumption is taken from supplier invoices agreed against meter readings.

Carbon dioxide emissions (tonnes)

Carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions are calculated using Defra average rates for carbon dioxide emissions. We have therefore shown our gross (calculated grid average electricity rates) and net emissions (calculated with the reduction from our green tariff, Qualifying Combined Head and Power). The international electricity emission factor has been used for the United States in accordance with Defra guidance. 2008 carbon dioxide emissions have been calculated using existing Defra guidance at the time of calculation.

Occupied properties (UK) 15,590 20,171 48,133
Occupied properties (US) 20,923 24,037 20,616

Water consumption (cubic metres)

Water consumption is taken from supplier invoices agreed against meter readings.

2010 2009 2008
Investment properties (UK) 519,70023 464,256 671,849
Occupied properties (UK) 58,067 45,085 29,310
Occupied properties (US) 76,672 82,849 100,435

Waste and recycling (tonnes)

Waste and recycling data is mainly obtained from third-party service providers (including local councils and contractors) and includes several estimated figures. The amount of waste generated and recycled is understated, as some recycling initiatives (e.g. recycled fluorescent tubes) are not tracked or measured by weight.

2010 2009 2008
Investment properties (UK) 15,601 14,694 11,782
– % recycled 45 39.5 31.3
Occupied properties (UK) 1,033 1,245 1,189
– % recycled 65.7 62.6 63.8
Occupied properties (US) 525 506 692
– % recycled 28 29.5 6.5

Business travel (kilometres)

Business travel distance is taken from expense forms (for private car business travel) and statements received from our corporate travel agency (for rail and air travel). Other travel paid through expense claims is not captured, and this figure will therefore be understated.

2010 2009 2008
Car 5,520,763 6,149,876 6,218,972
Rail 2,253,676 1,161,757 693,152
Air 26,215,082 23,294,199 26,076,983
Business travel – total 33,989,521 30,605,832 32,989,107

22 Providing gender information is not mandatory. In 2010, 2% of staff exercised the option not to disclose.

23 Water consumption increase was due to a hidden pipe leak at our premises in Craigforth, Scotland.
