Telford Homes 2023 Sustainability Report Shortlisted At The IR Society Best Practice Awards

Telford Homes’ 2023 Sustainability Report has been shortlisted for Best Communication of Sustainability at The Investor Relations Society Best Practice Awards.

The awards celebrate the achievements of companies demonstrating their commitment to delivering best-in-class investor engagement. They received a record number of entries this year, with judges praising the quality of the submissions, so it is a real achievement to be shortlisted.

Telford Homes launched their 2023 report in May, their third year of reporting since becoming 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.  As part of the award entry, Telford Homes highlighted their net zero home of the future, through an interactive cut out which drilled down into the detail of how the sustainability features work in their homes. The entry also noted their DE&I framework, interactivity within the report and progress made with their double materiality review.

A double materiality review assesses the direct impact that a business has on society and the environment, as well as the impact that society and the environment have on a business i.e. policy changes and cultural attitudes. This is a more holistic approach than a single materiality review, which only considers financial impact. To conduct their review, Telford Homes engaged with a wide range of internal and external stakeholders and received circa. 100 responses which informed their ESG risks and opportunities.

The level of interactivity in their 2023 Sustainability Report also sets them apart from their peers. The report includes an interactive ‘Net Zero Home’ that highlights the key sustainable features of their apartments, such as using fossil fuel free energy and all homes having an EPC B rating. Additionally, the embedded case study videos of their schemes and Q&As engage the reader and relay technical information in an easily digestible manner.

Telford Homes thank the ongoing commitment of their employees and stakeholders in putting environmental, social and governance principles at the centre of their business. Winners will be announced at the Best Practice Awards dinner, taking place on Tuesday, the 21st of November 2023.
