As West Yorkshire's largest social housing provider, we take our environmental responsibilities seriously. 

Our Sustainability Plan to 2025 sets out our key ambitions and actions to make sure we are on the right path to achieve our 2035 milestones of leading sustainability through social change. 

With our commitment to achieving net zero carbon emissions across all our business operations by 2030, we are focusing on the wellbeing of our customers and communities and playing our part in mitigating climate change. 

 Creating greener homes and spaces 

We are improving the energy efficiency of our homes making them warmer, more comfortable and lowering carbon emissions. To do this we have secured £3.3 million of funding from the Social Housing Decarbonisation Fund to help insulate 1,330 homes by 2025. This funding will ensure that roofs, walls and floors in our customers’ homes are well insulated and keep the heat in longer. 

We have also been trialing new heating systems, such as air and ground-source heat pumps, and we are rolling out a programme of solar photovoltaic panels (PV) to over 200 homes 2024. 

This supports our target to improve the energy efficiency of all our properties, achieving a minimum EPC rating of band C by 2030, helping to keep energy usage low and costs down. 

 Helping customers save energy
