Greencore wins Climate Change Initiative award

We won our first award as Greencore Homes! This was the Climate Crisis Initiative award at Property Week’s RESI Awards and it’s because we build all of our homes to be Climate Positive.

Climate Positive means we target the whole structure of each home to be better than net zero in terms of embodied carbon with no offsetting required. Our homes are air tight and very energy efficient. Each home is powered by electricity rather than gas and we utilise renewable energy sources targeted to supply 100% of the energy required in use. This combination of locking up carbon in construction and renewable energy provision in use is what we mean by Climate Positive.
