Cavanna Homes launches Sustainability Strategy

Family-owned house builder Cavanna Homes has become one of the first SME businesses in the construction sector to commit to a sustainability strategy, reducing its impact on the environment, improving the positive social impact it makes on communities and extending the care and support it provides to staff, suppliers and contractors.

In a ground-breaking move that recognises the pressure house building puts on the environment and the challenges facing the sector, Cavanna Homes has put in place targets which provide a clear roadmap to a more sustainable operation across its whole business, against which it will measure and publish its progress annually.

A strategy document explaining the concept says: “As a family-owned business with over 100-years of house building history in the South West, we have maintained our core values through decades of change, adapting to new challenges while caring for our customers, our communities, our staff and the environment surrounding us.

“Our second century promises to be just as eventful as our first and we are determined to approach it with a clear commitment to shaping a better future, for the people who buy our homes, the places where we build and our colleagues and partners in the business.”

The Torbay-based company, which consulted with its employees and shareholders in producing the strategy, described the document as “the blueprint by which we operate, setting out clear goals and the actions we will take to achieve them, across all aspects of the business.”

It includes reducing the company’s carbon footprint, increasing the energy-efficiency of its homes, repurposing materials and developing a more effective waste management strategy, while striving to maintain the company’s five-star status which is awarded annually by the Home Builders Federation and consistently meeting and exceeding customer expectations.

As a long-established family business there is also a strong focus on boosting the well-being of Cavanna Homes’ extended family, maximising training opportunities, increasing the number of mental health first aiders and supporting employees’ financial well-being.
