Decarbonising our housing stock is vital in delivering net zero. The task we face, however, is enormous, as UK homes remain among the least efficient in Europe. But while the challenge is great, so too are the career opportunities that come with it.
As the largest housing association in the UK, Clarion Housing Group plays a pivotal role in accelerating our net zero journey. The Group provides homes to over 350,000 people across England and has already delivered the largest number of retrofits in the social housing sector.
On its journey to decarbonise, Clarion is building on great progress already made to ensure that everything it builds, everything it owns, and everything it does is making a difference for its people and for the planet.
Jason Light, a Planned Investment Manager at Clarion, oversees a major housing project in Snodland, Kent. He says, “For all of us at Clarion, it’s about dialling up the speed we decarbonise our housing stock, creating communities that are climate resilient, energy efficient and that enhance social value. It’s an exciting time to be in housing.”
Building new homes and retrofitting existing ones provides a hugely important route for anyone seeking to make a real difference and help meet the climate change challenge.
