We build social, economic and environmental sustainability into our new homes by focusing on practical and cost-effective solutions. We take a proactive approach to the challenges posed by modern day living and support and encourage partners to find ever more innovative ways to bring down the cost of running a home and to promote the green agenda. Commitment to a corporate social responsibility agenda underpins our sustainable approach, whether through investment in environmentally friendly buildings, creating training and employment opportunities or delivering the building blocks for new communities.
We have experience achieving key sustainable standards throughout our developments including Code for Sustainable Homes Level 5 and Passivhaus, demonstrating our continued commitment to sustainable development and carbon reduction over the years.
We are fully committed to respond to the Government’s agenda to deliver zero carbon homes by 2016. We are already delivering an exemplar zero carbon development “Virido” which will be one of the UK’s largest zero carbon communities.
We ensure that we remain compliant with current and emerging legislation and the latest best practice guidelines are incorporated into our approach. Our Environmental Management System is accredited to the ISO14001 standard .
