Sustainability at Dennis Edwards Homes

At Dennis Edwards Homes, our vision is to be Shropshire’s leading, most trusted housebuilder, creating exceptional homes and sustainable communities. Our approach to sustainability is founded on a commitment to environmental stewardship, social responsibility, and strong ethical practices.

OUR APPROACH

Our strategy revolves around three key pillars: environmental impact, social value, and ethics. We believe that sustainable development is essential for the well-being of our planet and local communities, and we integrate these principles into every aspect of our operations.

Reducing Our Environmental Impact

We are dedicated to minimising our environmental footprint through innovative design and construction practices. Our homes are built to the highest standards of energy efficiency, using sustainable materials and technologies. We collaborate closely with communities and partners to create green spaces and promote biodiversity, ensuring that our developments enhance the natural environment.

Biodiversity & Nature

We create a legacy of resilient landscapes and communities, delivering biodiversity net gains and contributing to the conservation of local biodiversity priorities.

Natural Resources

We maximise the value or materials and preserve natural resources at each stage of construction through responsible sourcing and efficient management.

Carbon reduction

We drive down carbon emissions across our homes, our operations and our supply chain.

creating social value

We place people at the heart of everything we do. Our social values focus on building strong, vibrant communities where residents can thrive and employees can flourish. We engage with local stakeholders to understand their needs and aspirations, ensuring our developments provide real benefits.

Our commitment to social value extends to our employees by:

➤ Prioritising the health and safety of our people

➤ Valuing human rights and championing fairness by preventing modern slavery and committing to be a Living Wage Employer.

➤ Attracting and retaining a diversely talented workforce, regardless of gender, ability, race or religion.

 

strong ethics

Ethics are core to our business. We adhere to the highest standards of ethical codes, ensuring our operations cause no harm and are compliant with all regulations. Our protocols include rigorous risk management and stakeholder engagement processes, ensuring we meet the expectations of our investors, customers, and the wider community.

exemplar projects

Our projects exemplify our commitment to sustainability. From countryside regeneration schemes to new public gardens and playgrounds, we aim to create places that offer a high quality of life. Our developments feature eco-friendly technologies, green spaces, and amenities that promote social interaction and community well-being.
