The Landmarc Difference is our first social impact report, produced by CANInvest and Social Enterprise UK. It demonstrates the positive social, environmental and economic outcomes of our operations across the Ministry of Defence's Defence training estate and establishes a baseline for shared value activity across our business. We're really proud of it and here's why.

Economic

Our activities and those of our supply chain generated £90 million Gross Value Added (GVA) for the UK in 2012 and £474 million GVA since 2008. Over £63 million of additional financial value for the Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO) and its tenants has been generated over the past ten years and profits of almost £2 million have been reinvested.

Environmental

94% of all waste on the Landmarc operated training estate was diverted from landfill in 2013, up from 70% in 2012. Emissions decreased by 7% across our value chain and, significantly, allowed DIO to reduce the output of CO2 on the training estate by some 10,000 tonnes in 2013 – an estimated saving of £2 million and the potential to save over £3 million in 2014.

Social

We forecast that we will make a combined £750,000 investment commitment and estimated contribution over the next two years to rural communities through a number of initiatives which include: Landmarc 100, a £100k fund to provide financial support and mentoring for up to 100 start-up rural enterprises, The Rural Enterprise Hub, a free-of-charge touch-down office facility for rural entrepreneurs in Wiltshire and our first Business in the Community (BiTC) Rural Business Connector in Northumberland.
