One of the ways we ensure that we remain environmentally aware is by reducing carbon intensity. In 2016 we reduced this by over 5% across many aspects of our business including our offices, travel and building sites. Specifically across our office and site based activities, we obtained a 1% reduction of carbon, a number which we are very proud of considering the 5% increase in the number of homes we built last year.
The way we handle waste on site plays a big part in ensuring high standards of sustainability. The reduction, reusing and recycling of waste largely attributes to our being one of the most responsible developers when handling our on-site waste. In fact, 95% of all our waste is recycled rather than ending up in landfill.*
