Legal & General describes its ethos as inclusive capitalism – a recognition that the benefits of economic growth must be shared by all.   

Through the investments we make and the economic activities we fund, we play a proactive role in the social and environmental development of the markets where we work. We influence public debate and corporate actions by engaging with stakeholders across our value chain, from policymakers to investee firms to community groups. We run our business in a manner consistent with both our expectations of how other companies should be run and the markets’ demand for transparency and good governance. 

Creating alternative assets that society needs

As Legal & General’s alternative asset originator, we align to this ethos by creating and investing in assets that serve both an economic benefit and tackle some of the key social and environmental challenges, such as housing, infrastructure, clean energy, and healthcare.

We have published verified Science Based Targets for 2030, aligned with the goal of 1.5°C

Sustainability is integral to our responsible investment strategy

Our three social impact themes sit at the core of our approach and underpin our ambition that every pound or dollar we invest, delivers positive social and environmental impact.

Pioneering ways to decarbonise

We are an energy transition investor, investing clean infrastructure and technologies to support the transition to a low-carbon economy today, and to innovate and scale new ways to support reaching net zero emissions.


Protecting hidden workers

We have introduced a series of commitments to reduce health inequalities and improve the quality of life for the ‘hidden workforce’ across our real estate portfolio, demonstrating the crucial role businesses can play in building a fairer society. The ‘hidden workforce’ is identified as workers who keep buildings running, including cleaning, security and maintenance. This crucial commitment is driving change in the industry, and we are calling on the real estate industry to join us, and better health equity.
