A purposeful and responsible business
We have always been driven by a clear purpose - to build quality homes, strengthen communities and improve people's lives.
Building on these foundations, in 2010 we created a long-term strategy to guide our business and we called it Our Vision. Our vision is to be a world-class business, trusted to transform the most challenging sites into exceptional places and to maximise our positive impact on society, the economy and the natural world. We have now launched Our Vision 2030, Berkeley Group's ambitious strategy for the future which sets out our roadmap for the next 10 years across 10 strategic priorities. Read more here.
A sustainable business
Our Vision 2030 includes three key sustainability topics as strategic priorities for the business; communities, climate action and nature. This is supported by a dedicated sustainability strategy, standards for our project teams and detailed management system to maintain high standards. Read more here.
We are proud to have been in the first 350 companies worldwide to set science-based targets for greenhouse gas emissions reduction which align to a 1.5 degree pathway and have been validated by the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi). Read more here.

Sustainable Development Goals
Berkeley Group is committed to helping to achieve the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
We have identified six of the goals as being most relevant to us, based on a review of our business activities and value chain against the goals and their underlying targets. We consider that we have the greatest opportunity to contribute to the achievement of these six goals, particularly through the implementation of the Our Vision 2030 business strategy.
