Corporate Social Responsibility

Last updated - 9 October 2017

Our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) plan is aimed at improving your wellbeing - socially, economically and environmentally.
We support your community with a range of initiatives including energy saving, employment opportunities, enterprise, training and volunteering. As our work goes far beyond bricks and mortar we will continue to develop and expand this support.

You can take a read of our latest 2016/2017 CSR report which highlights our achievements throughout the year and showcases how we have strengthened the way we work with our partners to deliver socially responsible and sustainable programmes to benefit your community.

For 2017/2018 our CSR priorities are:

£4.3m HACT Social Value

15 New Business start-ups

80 work experience placements

40 apprenticeships

To support you environmentally, we will focus on:

1. A set of standards for thermal efficiency, water saving and biodiversity for new homes through our Genesis Design Vision. This will help you to save money.

2. We will install water-saving measures in homes at the same time as carrying out other works, to also help you save money.

3. We will increase biodiversity in green spaces on our estates with better maintenance and management, looking after your environment.

4. We will improve reporting from our supply chain on social and environmental targets to cover responsible sourcing, energy and waste.
