Corporate Social Responsibility
Our planet and its wildlife: We have adopted a hedgehog, and we ensure all gardens attached to our properties are hedgehog-friendly.
Supply chain: We expect our building materials to align with our own ethics and values. We therefore source them from Travis Perkins, which has strict supplier commitments. So, when you work with Chesterman Homes, you know that all our timber products are from legal and sustainable sources. All our building materials comply with environmental legislation, and we use the minimum water and energy throughout our operations.
Our people: The Chesterman Homes team has been working together for many years – we’re like one big family. All our building contractors hold the relevant health and safety qualifications.
Waste: Where possible, we recycle waste. We work with Rabbit Skips, a company that creates energy from waste, thus minimising the amount of waste that goes to landfill.
The story behind the hedgehog in our logo
You may have noticed that a subtle little hedgehog forms part of our logo. Why a hedgehog? Unfortunately, our spiky hedgehog friends are under threat, due to housing development and loss of hedgerows. In the 1950s, there were 30 million hedgehogs and now there are thought to be only one million hedgehogs left in the UK. As a responsible property developer, In 2017, Chesterman Homes supported the Royal Horticultural Society’s ‘Wild About Gardens’.
