A national benchmark has ranked Linden Homes as one of the top housebuilders in the UK for sustainable working.
The well-regarded NextGeneration initiative raised us up the annual listing to fourth place, recognising the efforts and actions we've taken at our developments, such as boosting local economies, cutting carbon and involving communities.
The organisation aims to encourage companies to provide more sustainable homes, and is overseen by representatives from UK Green Building Council and the Homes and Communities Agency.
The ranking earned us a silver award, and assessors commented: “A strong commitment to community engagement and a determination to build sustainable communities all contribute to making Linden Homes a worthy award winner.
“It is building on its sustainability credentials with significant successes at Graylingwell Park, one of the UK’s largest carbon neutral developments, Home @ Heartlands in Cornwall and its partnership with Gateshead Council and the social landlord Home Group, to build 2,400 new, sustainable homes across 19 sites over the next 15-20 years.”
Andrew Richards, Linden Homes group managing director, said: “Climbing further up the NextGeneration rankings is another strong sign that our focus on sustainability is working. We’re determined to continue this improvement and be a national leader.”
Over 90% of our waste is recycled or converted into energy.
Every piece of timber in your house is sustainably sourced timber. This means that new trees are planted to replace those cut down.
