About speakers

Chris Grigg
Chief Executive at British Land
Melanie Leech
Chief Executive at British Property Federation

Chris Grigg is chief executive of British Land, a constituent of the FTSE100. Since taking the role in 2009, he has put placemaking, wellbeing and design excellence at the heart of British Land’s approach to real estate. This is summed up in the company’s strategic focus on creating “Places People Prefer”.Chris will stand down from the Board at the end of December.British Land’s portfolio, which covers approximately 23 million sq ft, increasingly focused on mixed use places, including London office-led campuses and multi-let retail environments across the UK. Development is a fundamental driver of long term sustainable value and growth and key to the investment case, with the most significant opportunity at Canada Water, a 53-acre mixed use scheme of anew urban centre for London, including up to 3,000 homes.Sustainability is embedded throughout British Land’s places, which are designed to meet high sustainability standards, become part of local communities, provide opportunities for skills development and employment and promote wellbeing. Its continued strong sustainability performance is reflected in its rankings in ESG indices, including a green star rating for the tenth consecutive year in the Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark (GRESB), AAA rating in MSCI, 96th percentile in Sustainalytics for our sector, and inclusion in FTSE4Good and Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI) 2019.
