A commitment to building a better future.

Sustainability is good design. It needs to be embedded into every home from the outset – from design through to build and use. When sustainability sits at the very core of a building or a place, its not only the environment that wins; our Homeowners also benefit in many ways from cheaper energy bills to improved health.

Tackling the climate emergency is a pressing issue that affects all of us, and it is clear that action must be taken to address and reverse the damage done to our planet. As housebuilders of scale, we recognise that we have a significant role to play in reducing carbon emissions and are committed to being a responsible business and to finding better ways to build.

Our Sustainability Agenda

ESG Materiality Assessment

Through the ESG materiality assessment, our stakeholders identified climate change, energy efficiency, and ethics as most important, while external stakeholders see energy efficiency, climate change and air quality, employee rights and customer responsibility as most material. 

Our Sustainability Agenda

Innovation Workshops

Our internal innovation (virtual) workshops challenged a cross section of the company with environmentally and socially related problem statements and asked for bold suggestions. These suggestions we then presented to a key people assembly and voted on to be moved ahead.

Our Sustainability Agenda

External Stakeholder Interviews & Engagement

As a part of the MA we conducted over 36 hours of deep dive interviews with staff, planning authorities, partners and suppliers, investors and customers to discuss their views on where they believe we should focus our ESG activities.
