Our Making a Difference report highlights our growing ESG leadership, outlining our commitment to long-term economic and environmental sustainability. We've become the largest partner in the Social Housing Decarbonisation Fund, receiving £48.9 million from the UK government and adding £60 million of our own investment.
This positions us as leaders in social housing retrofit, enhancing residents' homes for year-round comfort. Innovative pilot projects, like our Hertfordshire endeavor, pioneer energy-efficient technologies.
We're proud of the £138.9 million in social value that we achieved during 2022/23 across the group, mainly through our charitable foundation, Clarion Futures. Acknowledging the ongoing cost of living crisis, we've pledged an additional £500,000 to the Cost of Living Emergency Fund, demonstrating our unwavering commitment to our communities.
We're resolute in our social purpose, confident in our ambitious plans, and committed to collaboration with government, peers, and partners. Whether building new homes, upgrading existing ones, or investing in communities, we shape a sustainable legacy for generations to come.
