GFP partner Sanctuary has published its latest Sustainability Report, demonstrating its ambition to make a difference in society, have a positive impact for its customers, and reduce its carbon footprint.
Sanctuary is working with other GFP partners to collectively find solutions to improve the energy efficiency of homes across the housing sector on the journey to net zero.
Sanctuary’s report highlights its work across the three aspects of sustainability – environment, social, and governance.
The strategic approach to sustainability prioritises three areas where Sanctuary has the greatest potential to contribute:
- Understanding and limiting environmental impact, making tangible steps on our journey to net zero by 2050
- Providing high-quality homes and services that support customers to lead healthy and fulfilling lives; and
- Always acting as a responsible organisation that is here for the long-term, recognising the positive role we can make in the lives of employees and customers.
“Since we began our sustainability journey, we have achieved significant progress on decarbonisation and energy efficiency. We have also focused on advancing the quality and quantity of the data we collect on our carbon emissions and have strengthened our partnerships in our communities.
We have seen a significant decrease in our operational carbon footprint against our baseline and have also fully calculated our extended carbon footprint, enabling us to chart a path towards achieving net zero by 2050.”
Rebecca Craig, Sanctuary’s Director of Sustainability and Climate Change
Sanctuary has also launched a new Sustainability Hub where their approach, key targets, and projects being worked on are shared.
