For the 2017/18 Bellway financial year, we have set a range of targets across our three CR themes (Environment, Construction, and Society and Economy). We have prioritised these targets and published our top 12 priorities across the themes for this financial year. This approach allows us to focus our efforts on the areas of greatest impact, while continuing to work internally on our additional targets.
Although we do not have a publicly published target for transport and connectivity this financial year, we are very much committed to the ongoing enhancement of this area of our business and will continue to pursue our non-published internal targets.
We help our customers to make the right choice in relation to the location of the site by providing a range of information in site-specific literature, known as My Space. The document is held in the sales office for potential customers to view, so they can decide for themselves whether the location is right for them.
Specific data may include details of public transport (bus and trains), the location and contact details of services such as local libraries, doctors and dentists, and distances to motorway links. Sustainable transport links can be a deciding factor when purchasing a new home and many of our sites are within 500 metres of a public transport connection and, where space allows, we provided cycle storage in homes.
Our company car policy was recently reviewed and as part of the new scheme employees are able to select from a range of vehicles, including low emission and hybrid cars, helping to reduce their CO2 emissions and maximise their fuel efficiency.
