At Keepmoat Homes we recognise the significant impact that the construction sector has on our environment and the role we have in building new sustainable and efficient homes. We understand issues such as climate change, resource depletion and water quality affect us all. So as a business we are determined to reduce our impacts and become an environmentally sustainable business.
We have identified our priority environmental areas for our business, these are:
Carbon & Energy
Waste & Resource efficiency
Pollution & Water
Ecology & Biodiversity
We understand that people want homes that minimise running costs and we are working with advancements in technology that reduce people’s long-term impacts on our environment.
As a developer we regularly review our objectives for each of these areas, driving continual improvements across the business. We provide regular environmental training for our staff and work to an environmental management system certified to ISO 14001.
We are also looking at new and innovative off site construction and sourcing local and sustainable materials.
