Our Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) statement

Corporate News
Take a look at our first ESG statement to find out how we're performing against key criteria.

In 2020, a Sustainability Reporting Standard for Social Housing (SRS) was launched. “The SRS is a voluntary reporting framework, covering 48 criteria across ESG considerations such as zero carbon targets, affordability,  safety and resident voice.” - The ESG Social Housing Working Group

Linc has adopted the SRS which sees us produce our first report against each of the 48 criteria, you can read our report here

About us: We are a socially responsible business focused on building a prosperous and healthier Wales, working together with our tenants, residents, and stakeholders to create environments where people can flourish.

We recognise our responsibility in meeting the ambitions of Welsh Government and keep the Wellbeing and Future Generations Act and its seven goals at the forefront of our minds as we shape our future ambitions and priorities. We have made pledges within the Welsh Governments All Wales Plan 2021 -2025
‘Working Together to Reach Net Zero’ and are in the process of training staff to become fully carbon literate.

As we build more affordable homes, we will be extending our use of modern methods of construction to create environmentally conscious and sustainable developments and utilise partnership working to deliver solutions that meet health, housing, leisure, and workplace needs.

This, our first ESG statement, provides us with a baseline from which we will create a continuous improvement plan which is both achievable and aspirational.
