And thanks to them and others in this space, sustainability is now mainstream.”

They directly influence the quality of our homes, our ability to complete each home on-time for our customer, and our ability to innovate.

“Supply chain sustainability is key to addressing the climate crisis and achieving our net zero carbon goal before 2050. Many of the trials currently underway are steppingstones on this journey and we are working closely with our suppliers as new technology emerges.

“There is a real opportunity to demonstrate that strong environmental performance can create long term sustainable value for the business and our stakeholders, including our supply chain. This Global Good bronze award is great recognition for the work we have done so far in this area and we are now even more determined to continue to improve and build on this achievement.”
