We are excited to announce the launch of our new sustainability campaign, #GoGreen. We want customers and colleagues to think about how we can all reduce our impact on the planet and help us reach our sustainability goals, as outlined in our recently launched Safe and Happy Sustainable Future Strategy.
Our Safe and Happy Sustainable Future Strategy sets out how we will improve sustainability and reduce our carbon footprint over the next five years. It will help us work towards reaching carbon neutral by 2030.
Our sustainable development concept centres around four pillars each led by a member of our senior leadership team. We will work openly and collaboratively with our partners, customers and key stakeholders to help reduce the impact of our organisation and housing stock.
The Four Pillars
The strategy is centred around four main pillars. Our colleagues have formed action groups to focus on each pillar and help us reach our goals. Click on each pillar to find out more about what they mean and what actions we could take:
Stopping carbon dioxide emissions going to the atmosphere by phasing out fossil fuels (e.g. coal, oil, petrol).
Not producing any waste, meaning that everything is either reused, recycled or donated.
Biodiversity refers to all living things and how they affect and interact with each other and the action we need to take to reverse the crisis in nature.
Altering our behaviour, systems and ways of living to prepare for and adjust to the current effects of climate change and its predicted future impacts.
Do you have a bright idea to help us reach our sustainability goals? Want to share your thoughts and ideas on how we can reduce our impact? Send us an email and we’ll let you know whether we have any opportunities to get involved.Email us now
