As part of The Sovini Group, we are committed to reducing our environmental impact and are striving to achieve net-zero carbon emissions.
We value our customers and communities, which is why we are focussing on factors
that not only affect our ecosystem, but also on a local scale tackling issues that directly impact everyone.
Promise for a better future
We are committed to providing our customers with homes that are fit for the future, and are accelerating action towards our goal of net-zero carbon.
Here is what we are doing do deliver on our promise of a better future:
By transforming our working practices, we have already reduced our carbon footprint by 69% since 2010/11. As a collective we are producing the equivalent to 3.04 CO₂ tonnes per full-time employee in relation to scope one (direct) and two (indirect) greenhouse gas emissions*.
Our colleagues are attending a Green Skills Bootcamp to gain the skills and knowledge designed to support the delivery of retrofit energy efficiency programmes.
We are building new homes to an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) standard of B or above, with environmentally efficient specifications where possible – from low carbon heating and sustainable drainage systems to smart meters, solar panels and charging points for electric vehicles.
By investing into our existing homes, with renovations to improve the energy efficiency, we are helping customers reduce their carbon footprint and energy bills.
Maintaining our ISO 14001 Environmental Management Systems certification.
