We continue to concentrate on the key areas that give rise to significant sustainability effects where Bellway has the ability to control or influence these for the better.
While these areas remain core to our approach, we remain open to feedback to ensure that we are focused on the right priorities.
Our sustainability targets have been directly aligned to our core business objectives. The central tenets of this policy are:
Recognising that we have responsibilities to both limit damage and to enhance the environment, our managers are given the responsibility of integrating environmental best practice into everyday business processes.
We aim to minimise harmful effects upon the environment and where possible use sustainable resources to seek environmental improvements, concentrating on where there is most room for improvement.
We will conduct our business to ensure that developments realise commercial returns in an environmentally responsible and sustainable manner.
We meet, as a minimum, with legislation and associated codes and, where possible, aim to exceed these performance targets.
