believe housing recognised in sustainability list

18 June 2021 - Latest news

A national news site for housing providers has recognised believe housing’s strong commitment to taking care of the environment.

We’ve made Housing Digital’s Top 30 Sustainable Housing Providers list.

The list celebrates the social housing sector’s efforts to help combat the climate crisis and organisations showing a genuine commitment to the green agenda.

Placing 14th from submissions made by our peers across the country, the judging panel recognised our achievement of becoming the first housing association in the UK to reach the Carbon Neutral International Standard and participate in the United Nations Climate Neutral Now initiative.

The panel stated that we “…clearly have commitment throughout the organisation and at the very top” and that it was great to see business activities already achieving net-zero emissions.

Environmental Manager, Samantha Tullock, said: “As a social housing association, we know that it’s vital that we play our part in reducing our impact on the climate. Becoming the first housing association to achieve the Carbon Neutral International Standard and participating in the UN’s Climate Neutral Now initiative shows that we’re taking this responsibility seriously.

“Being recognised in Housing Digital’s Top 30 Sustainable Housing Providers demonstrates that we’re one of the leading companies in the sector for green action, and we’re determined to reduce our environmental impact even further.”

This latest success comes weeks after we placed in Best Companies’ ‘25 Best Housing Associations to Work For’ and the ‘North East’s 30 Best Companies to Work For’ lists.

We also took top spot in the Northern Housing Awards’ ‘Covid Resilience’ category and won the prestigious ‘Homebuilder of the Year’ award at the UK Housing Awards.
