The BPF launched its statement of principles to support a diverse and inclusive real estate industry at the BPF President's Lunch 2017. In Scotland, the SPF is supporting these principles and working with UK and Scottish partners to deliver their ambitions.
While the BPF has historically supported member and industry stakeholder diversity and inclusivity initiatives, these principles mark the next step of the BPF’s campaign to unite the industry and use its collective weight to influence change.
