Making Golding Greener
Our new Environmental Sustainability Strategy sets out our commitments to reducing our impact on the environment and making our homes warmer and more affordable to run. It builds on our first Strategy, published in 2021, which placed an early focus on improving data, bringing in expertise, and establishing our environmental performance baseline. We’ve made good progress and in February 2023, we were awarded SHIFT Gold accreditation.
Making Golding greener - our priorities for 2023-2026
We're working on eight ways to help us to become greener:
- Warm and efficient homes
- Sustainable new homes
- Supported customers
- Green, clean communities
- Climate resilience
- Sustainable office and operations
- Sustainable procurement
- Monitoring and governance
Modern Methods of construction (MMC)
We intend to expand on Golding’s use of MMC. This approach will enable us to deliver affordable and sustainable homes, with reduced embodied carbon and to quicker timescales, helping to provide more customers in our communities with much-needed homes. Our approach will also support Homes England's key funding criteria.
