Delivering Sustainability

Electric vehicle charging points
Our proposals at Pembury include electric vehicle charging points

Our green vision

Vistry Group is committed to delivering sustainable development regarding all its schemes, and the project at Pembury will be no exception.

Our proposals will feature new pedestrian and cycle routes, with the potential to connect them to the wider network as it expands, encouraging and promoting greener travel.

We will use energy efficient construction materials to reduce the carbon footprint of the new homes. Our proposals also feature electric vehicle charging points.

As part of our green vision, we will also deliver a net gain in biodiversity and landscaping improvements.

Focus on the Environment

Vistry Group employs a ‘fabric first’ approach, ensuring construction methods are as environmentally efficient as possible.

Not only is this helpful in sustainability terms, but it also helps local authorities to meet their carbon reduction targets.

We place great importance on promoting green infrastructure in our schemes. Taking Pembury as an example, we will deliver cycle ways, public open spaces, footpaths, and Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS).

As part of our commitment to nature, we have formed a partnership with the Bat Conservation Trust and also the British Hedgehog Preservation Society to help protect these important species. We are also business supporters of the Bumblebee Conservation Trust, helping to ensure that its sites nationwide are supporting bumblebees and other important wildlife.

We will provide new cycle ways as part of our development

Our commitment to sustainability

In the most recent annual figures, Vistry Group achieved a recycling total of 95%. 

Its ongoing target is to achieve a 5% reduction in waste intensity tonnes/unit whilst retaining a recycling rate of over 95%.

Vistry Group makes a point of using sustainable building materials. For example, it buys only FSC/PEFC certified timber and supports schemes such as the National Community Wood Recycling Project, which reuses 686 tonnes of the group’s surplus timber annually.
