New partnership to address sustainability

Notting Hill Genesis is pleased to be a founder member the Future Homes Consortium, a group of 12 developers and housing associations who aim to work together to share ideas and find ways to tackle sustainability and deliver homes that meet modern criteria.

The consortium’s focus will be on sharing practical ideas and initiatives on sustainability and building safety in new homes and in retrofitting old stock. As part of that, we’ll look at best practice in the UK and further afield and consider how best to combine our resources. We’ll also work together to review our existing housing stock and make the most of our collective networks to better address the sustainability agenda.

“The quality and safety of our homes and a commitment to greater sustainability are core strands of our new corporate strategy,” says Elly Hoult, our group director of assets.

I’m looking forward to the opportunities offered by being part of the Future Homes consortium to work collaboratively with others and make improvements for the benefit both of our own residents and of society more widely.

The other 11 participants are Places for People, Riverside, L&Q, Peabody, Gentoo, Thirteen Group, Orbit, Guinness Partnership, Swan Housing, Raven Housing Trust and Wheatley Group. David Cowans from Places for People will chair the consortium for its first year, with responsibility due to cycle between members in future.
