Berkeley already leads the field in sustainable development having been named the UK's top sustainable house builder for the third year running and received the Queens Award for sustainability in 2008, an award that lasts five years.
We are raising the standards higher still with our vision 2020 initiative, an ambitious 10 year strategy aiming to make Berkeley one of the most sustainable businesses in Britain.
When working with Berkeley First, our university partners share in this commitment for a more eco friendly way of life that has benefits for them, their students and the whole community.
Our Vision for 2020:
"We will consistently meet or exceed our customers' expectations by delivering well-designed, beautiful homes and communities where they can live happy, healthy and environmentally-positive lifestyles. The service that we provide to our customers throughout the purchasing process and after completion will be exceptional. Customers will be positioned at the heart of our business and will be central to the decisions that we make."
Building Greener Homes and Delivering Sustainable Communities:
"We will have completed our first zero carbon community and all our new developments will be low or zero carbon. Our proven track record of delivering high quality, well-designed, comfortable homes with low environmental impact will make them highly desirable to customers and will have expanded our market base. Homes built by Berkeley will be recognised throughout the industry as the very best examples of sustainable design and construction."
Running a Sustainable Business
"Sustainability will be fully integrated into our business strategy and operations. Our environmental impact will be as low as possible and our operational sites will be healthy and safe places to work. We will retain a highly skilled and passionate workforce and through The Berkeley Foundation we will have given help to many young people, their families and communities. We will maximise shareholder value over the long-term in a sustainable and safe way, for an acceptable level of risk."
