Sustainability

Our approach to sustainability is consistent.

Moving to Net Zero Carbon

We have appointed the services of Carbon Footprint Limited to set our goal for achieving Net Zero Carbon.  Brining on board an industry expert has enabled us to produce Carbon Footprint Standard (TM) for the reporting in the period of May 2020 – April 2021 where we saw 12.21 tonnes of CO2 produced per £1 million spend.

We have since Offset the CO2 produced for the last reporting period by supporting a Wind Project in Maharashtra, India making Deeley Group Carbon Neutral for May 2020 – April 2021.

However we are fully focused on getting to Net Zero Carbon as soon as possible to cut our emissions. Therefore Carbon Footprint Limited have also supported us in our journey by utilising Science Based Targets to forecast our journey.

We have set a challenging, but realistic target of 2036 to become fully Net Zero Carbon.

Our work to reduce our carbon footprint includes:

  • Our Design & Build and Estimating teams have engaged industry specialists to assist with the design of both affordable living and market sale homes to Part L and Future Homes Standards
  • We continue to monitor the energy performance of our head office and will review the installation of L.E.D lighting in our Head Office.
  • We continue to embrace remote working during the COVID-19 pandemic and will use these methods going forward. We believe this will have a positive impact by reducing our carbon footprint via mileage.
  • To reduce our motor fuel consumption we have undertaken a promotion campaign of Hybrid and Electric vehicles to encourage staff to consider greener transport solutions

Putting our environmental commitment into practice

Delivering Sustainable Communities

Regularly in the Social Housing, Education and Commercial sectors we deliver schemes of high energy performance.

We choose to apply our high standards of best practice to each scheme we work on, regardless of BREEAM or Building Regulation requirements.

Scheme by scheme, we review the possibilities of installing renewable energy technology or designing the structure to ensure it is highly energy efficient.

Working with long standing partnering energy consultants we are designing homes that will meet the new Part L and Future Homes standards.

Measurement

Construct CO2 - measuring, understanding, improving construction carbons

We are signed up to the KPI Hub, a National Federation of Builders initiative from which we measure our CO2 emissions for the entire company.

Statistics are measured against other construction companies, whilst the outputs can highlight areas in which we can reduce our carbon footprint.
