Creating better places for people to live

When it coms to sustainability, having green homes and a lower environmental impact is now sitting near the very top of many Britons’ property priorities. Sustainability can no longer be considered a niche.

The government’s intention is for all new homes to be zero-carbon by 2050 and produce a 75% to 80% reduction in carbon emissions by 2025. With pressure on natural resources and the uncertainty of climate change, it is important that homes of the future are built in ways that provide benefits for both homeowners and the environment.


As the pace of UK house building is set to increase, now is the time to make a significant shift to homes that use resources more efficiently. Such a move will improve the quality of the built environment, create better places for people to live, and improve and protect the environment.

Climate change is a hot topic and cuts in global greenhouse gas emissions are still far from where they need to be to preserve a liveable climate. This was highlighted during COP26 (the UN Climate Change Conference) last year.

Consumer sentiment is increasing towards more sustainable ‘green’ homes and a ‘green’ premium.


Energy prices are steadily increasing year by year, and with a growing population, the demand and costs for energy are only set to increase.

Incorporating energy-efficient systems throughout your home will noticeably cut the price of your bills, and the initial setup cost will soon be earned back through the savings you’ll make.


Sustainable home-builders are not only concerned with building homes that are more environmentally friendly; they also want to build quality homes that will last. When you purchase a sustainable home you will not have to worry about costly maintenance and repairs for many years to come as your home will be made out of the highest-quality materials, and it will contain components and appliances meant to last a lifetime.

Don’t forget, our professional friendly advisors are on hand to support you and can help you explore all of your options.
