We're positioning ourselves at the forefront of the sustainability agenda in Scotland by:

  • Improving the energy efficiency of homes
  • Improving customers' understanding and ability to control energy use
  • Introducing renewable technologies
  • Working in partnership with key stakeholders including energy companies, the Scottish Government and voluntary agencies.

Our energy strategy

Reprioritising our investment programmes. We are investing an additional £6 million over the next five years to ensure our homes meet the EESSH target. The Energy Efficiency Standard for Social Housing came into force in April 2015.

Investing in innovative research and development. Our new build pilot projects were independently monitored and showed up to 75% reduction in household carbon emissions.

Tackling fuel poverty with customers through our home energy advice team.

Helping communities access Scottish Climate Challenge funding to support the reduction of carbon emissions.

Developing ideas and promoting best practice. 'Reuse House' was an empty property that was transformed into a show home using only recycled products.

Being ISO 14001 accredited. This is an internationally recognised standard in environmental management.

Expanding video conferencing in our offices to reduce staff travel. In 2015-16 we saved 1887 in business hours; 51,000 business miles; £13,000 in expenses; and 15CO2 tonnes.

Recycling 78% of office waste.
