Estuary is always looking to become more sustainable and environmentally friendly. To highlight this, we have a Sustainability Policy (0.268MB) which outlines the ways in which we intend to become more sustainable and reduce our carbon footprint.
Estuary's vision is to build homes that are increasingly sustainable.
We are committed to reducing our impact on the environment through a reduction in our carbon footprint, increased recycling, and working with contractors who are committed to sustainable procurement chains.
We aim to reduce our energy usage and we encourage green travel options within our organisation.
Why Is Sustainability Important?
Sustainability is the means to meet our needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. Sustainability has become the word that symbolises new efforts in maintaining our presence on the planet for thousands of years to come.
Sustainability has also become adopted within the environmental community and covers all environmental areas including recycling, reducing carbon emissions and sourcing new types of renewable energy to name a few. Specifically for Estuary it relates to environmental issues such as the type of materials used in new developments and maintenance, the transport methods chosen by staff and Estuary’s general office working practices and recycling.
Essex Wildlife Trust is the county's leading conservation charity with many fantastic events taking place across the county. Estuary has silver corporate membership of Essex Wildlife Trust and support sustainable ecological endeavours to protect the bio-physical environment wherever possible.
