Taylor Wimpey sign up Carbon Trust to develop business plan

One of the UK’s largest housebuilders Taylor Wimpey has announced it will work with the Carbon Trust Advisory Services to “manage risks and develop opportunities arising from carbon”.

Taylor Wimpey announced it will be working with the Carbon Trust to develop a robust strategic framework to enable them to manage the risks and focus on aspects of carbon that will have a financial impact on the business as well as areas where it can take action with the benefit of a clear action plan.

Taylor Wimpey Land and Planning director Peter Andrew said: “Taylor Wimpey believe that strategic assessment and management of carbon and energy, both direct use and in the supply chain, will yield both sustainability and financial benefits, including greater resilience to future energy price increases.”

Carbon Trust Advisory managing director Hugh Jones said: “We are delighted to be working with Taylor Wimpey, a business that is demonstrating its sustainability credentials by recognising the commercial importance of actively managing both its direct and wider supply chain carbon impacts.”

The Carbon Trust will examine:

  • Opportunities to reduce carbon within Taylor Wimpey’s core operations
  • Opportunities to reduce carbon within its wider construction supply chain
  • Opportunities to mitigate risks of rising energy, waste and other resource costs
