Stephen Webster, a contemporary designer of fine jewellery, has been awarded Grosvenor Britain’s and Ireland’s first Sustainability Awards.
This award is to recognize and reward social and environmental leadership in Grosvenor Britain’s Mayfair portfolio and Ireland’s Belgravia portfolio. It reflects what it calls “increasing opportunities for landlords and occupiers, to partner to create a better, more durable future”.
The judging panel was impressed by Stephen Webster’s past, present, and future commitments towards sustainability. He is located at Mount Street in Mayfair, London.
These commitments include sustainable sourcing and repurposing of materials for over ten years. They also recently developed a target to reduce carbon emissions by half by 2030. This goal is being approved by Science Based Targets Initiative.
The company maintains the highest standards in its supply chain and purchases renewable energy for its premises. In 2022, Green Pensions will be launched. It will also source IRMA-recycled gold and improve the sustainability of its packaging.

Grosvenor recognizes tenants with Sustainability Award
Grosvenor awarded the Odd Chair Company second place for its commitment to sustainability in its buildings, products and services. This includes enhancing building insulation through greening and using recycled materials in manufacturing.
The runner-up award went to My Wardrobe HQ which rents and resells high-end fashion items to reduce waste by 50% within five years. Atis, a health food restaurant in Eccleston Yards that champions seasonal and plant-based produce, was awarded the second place prize.
Amelia Bright, London Estate at Grosvenor’s executive director, said: “Delivering our environmental commitments depends heavily on partnerships with tenants. We created a way for tenants to recognize the great strides they have made in making Mayfair and Belgravia London sustainable.
“We were overwhelmed at the quality of the entries. However, Stephen Webster’s vision and track record won over us and we are thrilled to announce that they have been awarded the Grosvenor Sustainability Awards.”
Grosvenor’s first annual update of its Net Zero Carbon Pathway will be published this year. The award ceremony coincides with Grosvenor’s publication of the awards. It will become net-zero in 2030. According to the report, Grosvenor’s buildings, developments, and supply chain emissions decreased by 20% in 2020 compared to 2019. Although lockdowns undoubtedly had an impact on building use and emissions it was clear that the company is still on track to reach its 2030 target. The company also stated that collaborations with tenants are “critical to success”.
