Sign up to join our conversation about our approach to sustainability!
13 January 2022
In October 2021, we published our revised Sustainability Strategy which sets out our approach to a more sustainable future and the steps we want to take to get there. We’ll be holding our second online event about our sustainability approach, ‘Continuing the Conversation: Network Homes and Sustainability’, on 27 January at 6.30pm to 7.30pm and invite you to come along and tell us what you think about our planned approach as well as contribute ideas we can implement to achieve it.
Changes to our sustainability strategy
In March 2021, we held our first resident engagement virtual event: ‘What does Sustainability mean to you?’ which highlighted the importance of involving residents and incorporating their contributions around sustainability to our strategy. The findings from the 2021 Sustainable Homes Index for Tomorrow (SHIFT) provides an independent assessment of how housing organisations are performing against challenging environmental targets. The report declared that Network Homes has taken strides in our efforts, and we’ve gone from a bronze rating to silver. This is great news, but we know we can do more
The new strategy places a greater emphasis on engaging with residents, which is now a key pillar in our commitment to sustainability. It acknowledges the crucial role resident engagement can play in informing residents about the ways they can make a difference, as well as empowering them to save both energy and money.
Why you should take part in the conversation
This event is your opportunity to influence our approach to achieving a more sustainable future. You’ll get to:
