Sustainability matters to NU living. We deliver innovative homes designed for tomorrow's lifestyles and technologies. We continue to utilise modern construction methods, which combine the best construction standards along with reducing the carbon footprint of our developments.
As a part of The Swan Group and a provider of new homes, NU living is committed to using our corporate strength to ensure that our activities help to improve quality of life for people today, whilst considering the needs of future generations.
We are developing an ethos of environmental, social and economic sustainability throughout our organisation and encouraging sustainable actions from our clients, supply chain members and community partners. To support our approach to sustainable development we make the following commitments:
Creating sustainable communities for our residents to thrive for generations to come.
Develop sustainable construction methods to future proof our homes by making them more efficient.
Practice sustainable stewardship by ensuring that we understand our impact and strive to reduce any negative impacts.
Tackle Climate Change and Resource Efficiency by reducing our resource consumption and making sure our homes are fit for the future.
Monitor, report and reduce our carbon emissions to minimise our impact.
Swan Housing Association is accredited to ISO 14001, which recognises that we have a robust Environmental Management System. We are committed to sustainable development and recognise that we are responsible for minimising the environmental impacts that arise from the delivery of our services and activities.
We hold the The Buildoffsite Property Assurance Scheme (BOPAS) accreditation. This is awarded following a risk based evaluation which demonstrates to funders, lenders, valuers and purchasers that homes built from non-traditional methods and materials will stand the test of time for at least 60 years.
