Welcome to our environmental, social and governance (ESG) report. It covers 12 themes as outlined in the Sustainability Reporting Standard for Social Housing as follows:
Social – affordability and security; building safety and quality; resident voice; resident support; placemaking
Environmental – climate change; ecology; resource management
Governance – structure and governance; board and trustees; staff wellbeing; supply chain management
The range of homes we provide, from rented to shared ownership, sheltered accommodation and care homes means we help many local people. We believe that strong ESG reporting is key to meeting our responsibilities to our customers.
We join over 120 housing associations in adopting the principles of the Sustainability Reporting Standard for Social Housing, aligning it to our business process and key strategies like development and asset management.
We believe it will provide direction and transparency in our achievement of key sustainability targets like EPC C by 2030 and net carbon zero by 2050.
