A British Property Federation (“BPF”) and Savills report published today ‘Levelling Up – The Logic of Logistics’ evidences the importance of the industrial and logistics (I&L) sector to the UK. The report provides a comprehensive overview of the growing economic, social and environmental objectives of the sector and the critical role it can play in a post COVID and Brexit UK.
The report is structured as follows:
■ An Economic Powerhouse focuses on the sector’s economic attributes, namely how I&L premises facilitate modern lives and therefore should be considered as ‘Critical National Infrastructure’.
■ Growing Social Value Credentials discusses the sectors contribution to local and regional communities, the Government’s ‘Levelling Up’ agenda and the range of jobs and training opportunities the sector creates as part of its wider supply chains.
■ A Green Recovery ‘Boxed’ outlines how the sector is embracing sustainability via a reduction in carbon across all phases of a property’s life cycle.
