Green organisation

solar panels

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 invested an additional £6 million from 2015 to 2020 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 2018-19 we saved 1904 business hours; 102,832 business miles; £27,000 in travel expenses; and 30CO2 tonnes.

Recycling 71% of office waste.

"Maintaining the fabric of our homes is made easier by effective heating and ventilation of our buildings. We know that affordability has a big impact on an individual's ability to heat their home properly and the most vulnerable are at the highest risk. In our EastHeat project we harnessed solar PV, reducing the energy demand for heating and hot water."
