To mark Earth Day 2021, we thought we would talk about what Redrow is doing to help reduce our impact on the planet.
The ‘Redrow’ way
- We focus on natural spaces, where people and nature can thrive together. Our partnership with the Wildlife Trusts helps enhance biodiversity on our developments.
- We work closely with communities to create designs around what is important locally. Our innovative placemaking framework sets out eight design principles that define how Redrow achieve sustainable development on all of our sites.
- We create attractive places to live, encouraging healthier lifestyles and promoting a sense of community spirit.
What do we do as a company?
- Support local businesses, 93% of products, services and labor procured locally in 2020
- Help people get back into volunteering/work through projects such as the Community Wood Recycling.
- Encourage responsible use of resources through projects such as “reduce the rubble”
- Source sustainable timber, 99.9% of our timber was responsibly sourced timber in 2020
- 97.4% of our construction waste was diverted from landfill in 2020
