Ranked #1 in the 2022 Next Generation housing benchmarking report for the third year in a row 

Telford Homes has been ranked as the UK’s most sustainable homebuilder, for the third year running, according to the 2022 ‘NextGeneration’ housing benchmarking report.

The NextGeneration Benchmark assesses and ranks the sustainability performance of the UK’s 25 largest housebuilders, with Telford Homes coming out on top for the third consecutive year.

Overseen by an executive committee made up of Homes England, the UK Green Building Council, JLL, and Lloyds Bank, the NextGeneration benchmark is designed to increase corporate transparency and improve sustainability performance in the homebuilding sector.

Telford Homes was assessed against a set of stringent criteria, with the developer ranked first in a number of areas, including reporting, future proofing, environmental site management, sustainability standards, energy and carbon, transport and health and safety.

Alongside being ranked as the UK Benchmark’s most sustainable homebuilder, Telford Homes is 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.

John O’Dwyer Head of Sustainability, Telford Homes: “We believe it is now more important than ever to transition towards a low carbon economy with the built environment delivering genuinely sustainable buildings. At Telford Homes, we are committed to accomplishing our 2030 net zero roadmap ambitions and continue to refine our Building a Living Legacy Sustainability strategy to address evolving policy and societal challenges. We are delighted that our efforts in this space continue to be recognised by the NextGeneration Sustainability benchmark with the accolade of the UK’s most sustainable homebuilder.”

Anne Kavanagh, Chief Executive Officer, Telford Homes: “This fantastic accolade supports our vision for growth and building sustainable communities and we’re delighted to accept this award.
