Home Group and corporate social responsibility

We are committed to balancing the requirements of our organisation with care for the environment and social well-being. We embed sustainability principles in all aspects of our decision making to enable Home Group to operate as a responsible, environmentally conscious and socially aware organisation.

Environmental CSR

We recognise that good environmental management must be an integral part of our organisation and therefore should be integrated into our operations and activities wherever practicable.

We continually demonstrate our commitment to improving our environmental performance though our IS0 14001 and SHIFT accreditation.

Home Group has achieved IS014001 accreditation since 2012 and we continue to improve our environmental performance year on year. 

Through integrating our Environmental Management System into our business operations we have been able to reduce our impact on the environment and build a more sustainable organisation.

At Home Group we are committed to improving our sustainability and have demonstrated this through benchmarking ourselves against other similar organisations within the housing sector. 

We have once again demonstrated this commitment though achieving a SHIFT silver award having continually improved our SHIFT score year. Home Group was also awarded the Sustainability Campaign of the Year.

 

SHIFT is the sustainability standard for the housing sector. Provided by Sustainable Homes, recognised by the HCA and backed by Government, it is an independent assessment and accreditation scheme that demonstrates organisations are delivering against challenging environmental targets.

Sustainability campaign of the year 

Home Group won the Sustainable Homes Sustainability Campaign of the year award.

Our campaign to promote and improve sustainability is built around actively educating and engaging staff and customers on the benefits of sustainability alongside implementing innovative technologies and designs into our office spaces and housing developments.
