= contribution of real estate in total carbon emissions in the UK 

It’s high time to think not just about today, but about tomorrow

There are currently about 29 million homes in the UK, of which 19 million have an EPC lower than C according to the CCC’s figures. 

Based on houzen’s algorithms, we discovered that 21.3 million UK properties need some kind of sustainable retrofits in order to start making positive impact on the planet. This is a tall order and we will need your help, to make this happen. 

As part of houzen’s mission to be fully aligned with the Net-Zero Goals in the UK and globally, we are committed to building a sustainable business for our employees and customers, and bringing a nation-wide change in residential properties’ impact on the environment.

 

Our Sustainability Pledge

We are driving toward a net-zero carbon future where we all can enjoy our lives – and properties we own – for as long as we can, in an inclusive society, without being worried about the future. As a team and as UK citizens, we pledge to make an impact.

1.

Sustainable properties are in the focus of what we do – we have programmed our platform to prioritise properties with green features built in, and our consultants are trained in Sustainable Real Estate.

2.

Small improvements count – we are transparent about our knowledge in terms of government and NGO grants available for sustainable improvements in a property and offer free consultations to anyone interested in making an impact.

3.

All hands on board – every employee of houzen pledges their own net-zero statements every month, and we run seasonal campaigns motivating everyone to achieve their pledges: this could be anything from stopping to use paper cups, to taking recycling more seriously or saving electricity by avoiding standby mode on appliances. Even the smallest win is celebrated!

4.

Sustainable transportation – all houzen employees commute and travel for meetings with clients using public transportation. We use a sustainable contractor transportation solution for all the work commissioned through houzen, nationwide.

5.

Cut down on paper – since 2019 we have essentially stopped printing and using paper for office operations. All of our admin work is done using pdfs and online signatures.
