Making our world a greener place

——

2020 is a year that has given us all plenty to think about and lots of time to do it. Many of us are finding that we have new priorities in our lives. If yours is to do more to play your part in making our world a greener place, the natural place to start is at home. Of course, there’s ways to recycle more, try to cut down on the use of electricity, energy and water, and these are all important steps, but with an older house, there’s only so much you can do.

Live a sustainable life

  

If you want to have a home that lets you live a sustainable life without going off-grid in a field somewhere, the only answer is a new home and Laurus is committed to ensuring that our homes are built to the latest environmental standards. This is a part of our ethos of quality in everything, but also because we believe that we have a responsibility to create homes that are sustainable and contribute to a greener world.

New homes more efficient

  

According to research, new homes are on average six times more efficient than older homes on the market, which means they generate over 60% less CO2 emissions, which is the equivalent of driving 10,000 miles less a year per household. That’s the kind of impact you can make just by choosing a new home.

This is crucial because according to the Environment Agency, houses account for 30 per cent of the UK’s total energy use, 27 per cent of UK carbon dioxide emissions and around 24 per cent of greenhouse gas emissions. Cutting down on those is the way forwards and that’s why our new build homes all have double glazed windows, insulated walls, roofs and doors as well as energy-efficient heating.

Energy-efficient way we’re building our new homes

  

All of these features have a significant impact on carbon emissions but they also work in your favour when it comes to energy bills. If you’ve never lived in a new build home before, you’ll be amazed at how quickly and easily you’ll be able to heat up your home in winter and keep it warm, compared to an older house.

Not only is that great for some much-needed hygge but you also won’t be needing to worry about the impact on your heating bills because these can be cut by up to half thanks to the energy-efficient way we’re building our new homes. When you factor in all the other cost savings of a new home that needs less DIY and maintenance than an older one, this is a lot of extra cash in your pocket every month.

Support community, biodiversity and sustainability projects

  

There’s more than just the financial and carbon footprint savings at the heart of a sustainable home, of course. Our Laurus developments are designed to be as good for your wellbeing as they are for the planet, with a real community neighbourhood feel. We believe in the power of communities and in our responsibility to help create neighbourhoods and act as a catalyst to benefit the immediate community and wider society, that’s behind our ethos of Profit for Purpose.

That’s why we support community, biodiversity and sustainability projects in the areas we work and live in and why we make sure our homes and neighbourhoods have access to green spaces and natural surroundings. We’ve all seen in lockdown the benefits to our mental and physical wellbeing from having the chance to get out in nature for some exercise and fun.

And placing you in readymade community means that you’re not only living in style, but also living sustainably - that’s something that needs to be a priority for all of us.
