Climate change will cause more extreme weather events such as storms, heatwaves, wetter winters and drier summers, greater risk of flooding, water shortages and overheating in homes. Barratt's Climate Change Policy aims to mitigate climate change through:
- Superior development and home design, to ensure our developments have access to community facilities; sustainable transport options; and sustainable drainage solutions.
- Mitigating climate change by working with our suppliers and subcontractors and specifying low carbon materials in accordance with our sustainable procurement policy.
- Adaptation through innovation, research and partnership and investing in trials of alternative methods of construction.
Research emerging SMART technologies and techniques, and implement measures to adapt to changes in thermal comfort, flood risk and water shortage.
