Introduction and guidance

This unit introduces learners to the wide scope of marketing communications and how

Scenario

Westfield Stratford City:


Westfield Stratford City is a metropolitan capital for East London, a city within a city, an
innovative and dynamic place for a new generation of consumer to shop, to eat, to
meet, to be entertained and to stay.
At the gateway to the Olympic Park, with spectacular views over London, Westfield
Stratford City opens up a whole new vantage point to the public, a new way to see and
experience the City.
Celebrating the passion and dynamism of East London, Westfield Stratford City
embraces its unique East End roots. Working with local artists they have commissioned
an array of work which has been built into the fabric of the centre.
(http://uk.westfield.com/stratfordcity/community)
Environment:
As one of the world's largest retail property groups, Westfield recognises that its
properties, through their design, construction and operation, can result in environmental
impacts. They are, therefore, committed to operating the business more efficiently,
using energy wisely, producing less waste, and building and redeveloping shopping
centres that make the most of technology and new design techniques to minimise their
impact on the environment.
At Westfield Stratford City, they are working hard to deliver on this commitment by
continuously improving the way they operate the shopping centre day-to-day. In July
2013, they were awarded ISO14001 accreditation for their environmental management
system in recognition of this. The environmental focus areas include the following:
Waste
Energy
Water
Biodiversity
