Our contribution to Environment, Social and Governance (ESG) goals

Stonewater is one of the first social housing providers in the UK to adopt the sector-wide framework published by Good Economy, which will form the basis of our ESG reporting going forward.

Our social purpose is core to the work of the organisation to provide much needed affordable homes in communities where our customers can thrive.

This framework gives us a transparent way to report on the impact of the work we do and demonstrate our commitment to:

• Providing quality homes and services for our customers, including some of the most vulnerable people in our society
• Identifying and improving the environmental impacts of our operations
• Having a corporate culture where equality, diversity and inclusion are embedded and valued

Power to Zero

Making the UK’s housing stock fit for the future will have a major role in reducing emissions and helping the UK government meet its net zero target on CO2.

We want to play an active part in leading this for the sector and have commissioned the Institute of Public and Policy Research (a leading independent ‘think tank’) to produce a report which will set out the ambitious but practical steps required to develop a large-scale, national low-carbon heating retro-fitting programme.
