Commit that, by 2025, all new developments will be energy positive. Joseph Homes will achieve net zero operational carbon emissions for all buildings under direct operational control. Maximise reductions of embodied carbon emissions at new developments and major renovations of existing assets, compensating for any remaining residual upfront embodied carbon emissions.
Measure and publicly disclose Scope 1, 2 and 3 operational and embodied emissions data at asset and portfolio level via an annual report.
Continue to implement our Livewell manifesto by developing buildings using a fabric first approach, reducing energy demand and usage with any balance provided by renewables. Maximise embodied carbon reductions for new developments by carrying out LCAs and utilising low carbon design, materials and construction processes.
Verify energy consumption and emissions data via an independent third party in an annual stakeholder report.
Show industry leadership by accounting for and reducing embodied carbon emissions in developments and setting a target to get beyond zero. Advocate for industry wide transformation by challenging the supply chain, informing customers and communicating through media and communications channels.
