We are committed to improving our responsible business disclosure
PHP invests in flexible, modern properties for the delivery of primary healthcare to the communities they are located in. The buildings are let on long term leases where the NHS, HSE, GPs and other healthcare operators are our principal occupiers. As at 31 December 2021, the Group owned 521 properties valued at £2.8 billion which are located across the UK and Ireland.
PHP’S NET ZERO CARBON FRAMEWORK
As one of the leading investors and developers of flexible, modern primary healthcare accommodation across the UK and Ireland, PHP is committed to transitioning to NZC across its operations and property portfolio. We have set out below the five key steps to achieve an ambitious target of being NZC by 2030 for all of PHP’s operational, development and asset management activities and to help our occupiers achieve NZC by 2040 five years ahead of the NHS’s target of becoming the world’s first net zero carbon national health system by 2045 and ten years ahead of the UK and Irish Governments’ targets of 2050.

Engaging with our stakeholders
Through our investment, asset management and forward funded development activities we look to minimise the environmental impact of our business.
While our investment, asset management and forward funded development activities focus on the sustainability risks and opportunities that are most material to our business there are a number of additional issues that are of lower material impact but are of interest to specific stakeholder groups:
We are transparent and all our policies are available on our website and we expect our principal advisors, suppliers and occupiers to follow them.
We expect organisations we employ to meet the standards we set ourselves.
We engage with stakeholders to ensure we are aware of, and are able to respond to, their expectations.
