It is important that we recognise and respond to the global challenges that society faces. As a major housebuilder, we can play a key role in making positive change to address these issues within the communities we operate and within our supply chain.

We have identified three key pillars to drive our focus and performance. These pillars reflect our material issues and are aligned to the Group’s strategic objectives ensuring that sustainability is a core part of the Group’s ongoing 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.
