Telford Homes nameD UK's most sustainable housebuilder, again!
Ranked number one in the Next Generation housing benchmarking report 2021
Telford Homes has been ranked as the UK’s most sustainable housebuilder for the second year running in the ‘Next Generation’ housing benchmarking report 2021. The NextGeneration Benchmark assesses and ranks the sustainability performance of the UK’s 25 largest housebuilders.
Overseen by an executive committee made up of Homes England, Lloyds Bank and the UK Green Building Council, and administered by JLL, the Next Generation benchmark is designed to increase transparency and improve sustainability performance in the homebuilding sector.
Telford Homes was assessed against a set of stringent criteria and ranked first in a number of areas, including company strategy and governance, reporting, future proofing, environmental site management, transport, procurement, water and waste management, health and safety and design and placemaking.
Alongside being ranked as the UK’s most sustainable housebuilder, Telford Homes was one of the first developers to set out an integrated sustainability roadmap for the next decade, culminating in becoming a net-zero carbon company by 2030.
Jon Di-Stefano, Chief Executive of Telford Homes, comments: “We’re delighted to be ranked as the UK’s most sustainable housebuilder in the Next Generation benchmarking report for the second year running. COP26 has brought into sharp focus the pressing need for the property industry to accelerate their efforts in relation to the climate crisis. This award is recognition of the role we are playing in reducing our carbon footprint across our portfolio, as we strive to become a net-zero carbon company by 2030.”
