Disclosure and sustainable finance

Benchmarking ourselves as national leaders for performance and disclosure

Our role as the country’s largest housing association provides us with a platform to promote transparency and demonstrate sustainability leadership beyond the housing sector.

We continually seek to adopt and exemplify best practice in how we report and perform against ESG targets. And our sustainability credentials and track record in delivering new homes have made us a trusted partner of government and business. This has been reflected by the market, with support from investors helping us to raise £1.45bn of sustainable finance since 2019.

We have a set of sustainability strategies, roadmaps and reports across the business which set out our ambitions, chart our course and report back on our progress towards getting there.

Making progress

Our Making a Difference Report for 2023 demonstrates our progress against the targets we've set ourselves across our Group sustainability strategy. It is aligned to the Sustainability Reporting Standard (SRS) for Social Housing and demonstrates our leadership in Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) reporting.

“From the design and construction of our new homes, through the products we specify, to the way we communicate with our customers. If it is unsustainable, it’s out.”

Sustainable housing – financed through a clear framework
