Sustainability is integral to how we do business.

As a responsible business, we recognise the importance of making a positive contribution to the communities we work in.

Our sustainability strategy comprises three key pillars to drive our performance and focus. The pillars reflect our material issues and are aligned to the Group’s key priorities, ensuring that sustainability is a core part of the Group’s operations.

THREE KEY PILLARS

Building for tomorrow

We will achieve net zero carbon homes in use and in our operations, supported by carbon reduction commitments, aligned to climate science.
