A different approach to social responsibility and sustainability

We know what can be achieved when different specialists work together with a shared focus, and we’re determined to promote sustainability in our sector. By applying our pragmatic, problem-solving approach we’re able to make a real, positive difference for environments, communities, our people and everyone we work with.

Sustainable real estate

Making buildings future proof is integral to optimising real estate performance. The world’s buildings currently account for around a third of all greenhouse gas emissions, according to the UN Environment Programme (UNEP). We recognise our responsibility to drive energy efficiency, protect resources and find innovative ways to deliver on our clients’ sustainability goals.

We’re also determined to create healthy, safe experiences for those that live in, work in and visit any building. We’re members of the UK Green Building Council (UKGBC), and in 2018 joined the Legal Sustainability Alliance (LSA).

Inspiring the next generation

We’re developing the property professionals of the future. As part of the Chartered Surveyors Training Trust (CSTT) and Urban Plan UK we’re working to educate and inspire those beginning careers in property. We relish the fresh thinking from inquisitive minds on our Level 6 Apprenticeship Programme, as they work towards a degree in building surveying and membership of the RICS.

We invest in the broader wellbeing of our people too, with strategies spanning physical, social, emotional and developmental needs, designed so that everyone at Hollis can thrive.

All making a difference together

Getting involved in positive causes and community-based initiatives is a natural part of our problem-solving, teamworking culture. We have a Charity of the Year programme and we put time and energy into the local communities of our 24 offices. We work with young and disadvantaged groups as a LandAid Foundation Partner, and the high level of participation in our payroll giving scheme has won us the Payroll Giving Award four years running - three Gold awards and a Silver award for 2019.
