Delivering a sustainable legacy

From the design and construction of our new homes, through to the products we specify and the investment we pour into our communities, our focus is on being a force for good for both people and the planet.

As the Group Director of Development at Latimer by Clarion Housing Group, I am pleased to present our Sustainability Report for 2023/24. This report highlights our strides in sustainable development over the last year and demonstrates our core mission to deliver more for our communities and the natural world.

Launch of the Latimer Sustainability Report 2023/24

In the year leading to this report being published we have seen significant progress as we continue to lead by example, being fully committed to our goal of becoming a net-zero carbon business by 2050.

We have also seen key achievements in the development of low carbon, low energy homes such as the completion of our Future Homes Standard project in East Hertfordshire, which demonstrates our commitment to innovative and sustainable housing solutions.

Considerable progress has also been made across various areas, such as:

  • More than 500% increase in the number of trees planted on our development sites.
  • Achieving a 98% persion of construction waste from landfill.
  • Ensuring 33% of the new homes built in the year were fossil fuel-free.
  • Achieving a Gold Award in the Next Generation Benchmark for the top 25 sustainable housebuilders. 

Our efforts go beyond environmental measures

We are deeply invested in the social fabric of our communities, and this year we have enhanced community engagement and well-being through our developments, significantly improving the living conditions for our residents.

As we forge ahead, our focus remains steadfast on innovation and continuous improvement. Our commitment to sustainability is not just about meeting targets but exceeding them, ensuring we make a lasting positive impact on both people and the planet.
