Environment

Climate change is one of the biggest risks of our time.

We have one generation to reverse the destructive effects that have already begin to impact the world.

Places for People takes its responsibility towards the environment very seriously.  Our environmental sustainability strategy has been developed with a zero-carbon future in mind, and comprises five key themes:  

  • Net-zero carbon: for example, using new technologies such as heat storage solutions, heat pumps and connected devices to help achieve zero carbon across our estate. 
  • Biodiversity: ensuring our new developments achieve 10 per cent biodiversity net gain. 
  • Sustainable transport: ensuring our own fleet is running on clean fuels within the next five years and that our estates give customers access to sustainable forms of transport. 
  • Climate resilience: mapping where our stock is affected by climate related risk and working with partners to help futureproof our customers’ homes. 
  • Zero waste to landfill: ensuring all non-hazardous waste is diverted from landfill by 2025.
