Supporting economic growth and job creation is important to SEGRO. As a key industrial member of the British Property Federation (BPF) we work with Government and regulatory bodies to help the real estate industry grow and thrive. We play an active role in providing Government and regulators with the  knowledge they need to make decisions.

We have representation on the planning, tax, finance and policy committees at the British Property Federation. In 2015, SEGRO helped to create a new industrial committee that is tasked with promoting the benefits of the sector and highlighting the contribution that industrial land and property makes to the UK economy.

In 2016 SEGRO’s Chief Executive, David Sleath, became President of the British Property Federation. The main purposes of the organisation are to engage
with Government to help policy makers understand how, by adopting the right policies, they can enable the real estate industry to contribute to meeting
Government’s objectives such as achieving economic growth, solving the housing crisis and delivering regional devolution and prosperity.
