Reducing our carbon footprint
In order to reduce our carbon footprint, we have been working in close partnership with the Carbon Trust to measure and understand the impact that our business has on the planet.
Through better understanding of our impact we have already been able to take a number of positive actions towards increasing our environmental sustainability. One significant change has been our switch to 100% renewable electricity across all our offices and communal areas and we have now made this a standard requirement in our future procurement of energy.
Our commitment to environmental sustainability has seen us invest to improve the energy efficiency of our homes. Our aim is to ensure that all our homes meet EPC levels A-C as a minimum requirement.
We will be taking significant steps to increase the biodiversity across new developments and our existing communities. We are committed to ensuring that the green spaces we care for contain a rich biodiversity encouraging nature to grow and prosper as well as a space for our customers to enjoy and improve their wellbeing.
