Crest Nicholson's driving ambition is to be the market leader in the design and delivery of sustainable homes and mixed-used communities. We aim to improve the quality of life for people and communities now and in the future through providing better homes, work places, retail and leisure spaces.
For Crest Nicholson, sustainability is about considering and supporting the impact and relationship we have with our customers, communities, employees, the environment and our partners. It is about operating in a responsible way and balancing our strategic business objectives with our responsibilities to the environment and wider society.
We participate in benchmarks and indices such as the FTSE4Good and the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), demonstrating our sector leadership through consistently high scores. We received a B score for our 2019 CDP response, which is available to view in Our Documents.
Our Chief Executive is responsible for sustainability, including climate-related issues, and is ultimately accountable for the risks and opportunities that impact the business. The Chief Executive established and chairs the Sustainability Committee to provide oversight of the sustainability strategy and ensure it is fully integrated within the business.

Our sustainability policies provide clear direction for the Executive Leadership Team and employees. These are reviewed by the Executive Leadership Team for currency, impact and focus.
Within each policy is a set of commitments that we aim to meet through one or more programmes of work within our business strategy.
