Be Lean | Be Clean | Be Green

Our commitment to sustainability

Palace Green Homes is committed to delivering sustainable homes. As an ambitious company that wants to lead by example, we are taking an innovative approach to our design. We partner with suppliers who share our futuristic visions in order to build in harmony with the natural environment on all our upcoming sites.

Sustainability underpins our values and forms the foundation of our new builds. As part of our link to East Cambridgeshire District Council, we feed into their Environment Plan with a ‘Top 20 Target’ dedicated to our commitments. This includes achieving Natural Cambridgeshire’s ‘Developing with Nature’ Chartermark for future developments of more than 10 houses.

We are currently developing our core commitments to tackle the environmental challenges in the face of a crucial time for the climate and amidst a national energy crisis. However, so far, through all of our designs for new housing, we have committed to:

Be Lean

Being Lean

Every new home we build uses less energy as a result of our ‘fabric first’ approach to building design

This means that we select the materials we use very carefully, maximising what the materials of the building itself can achieve and minimising the need for additional heating and cooling properties.

Be Clean

Being Clean

In our homes, we use fittings and fixtures that minimise the impact on the environment

We install a range of low energy lighting; a central heating system for each room to ensure efficiency; ventilation to meet and exceed air permeability targets; and ensure all white goods are ‘A’ rated or higher.

Be Green

Being Green

We are committed to using renewable technologies for all of our new build developments

By 2030 our new homes will be carbon Net Zero which we will achieve by building energy-efficient homes with appropriate renewable technologies such as solar panels and car-charging points that help to support the switch to electric-powered vehicles.

Our Statement of Sustainability Policy

Our sustainability policy is in review whilst we further improve our environmental credentials and develop our vision for the next three years in an endeavour to continually lead the transformation towards a greener future.
