Celebrating World Environment Day

As we celebrate World Environment Day today, we are reminded of the importance of preserving our planet for future generations. As a company, we believe that sustainability is not just a responsibility, but an opportunity to make a positive impact.

At Harpers, we are dedicated to minimising our environmental impact and contributing to a greener future.

Here is what sets us apart:

  1. Environment Act 2021 Compliance: We adhere to the latest environmental regulations, actively working towards achieving net zero emissions by 2050.
  2. UKAS-Accredited ISO 14001 Policy: Our environmental management system, certified by UKAS (the United Kingdom Accreditation Service), ensures continuous improvement in our environmental performance.
  3. Sustainable Solutions: We actively implement a range of innovative solutions, including:
    • Air Source Heat Pumps: Utilising clean and renewable energy for efficient heating and hot water.
    • Passivhaus Construction Techniques: Building highly energy-efficient structures that minimize heating and cooling needs.
    • Solar PV Panels: Generating clean electricity on-site to reduce reliance on the grid.
    • Electric Vehicle Charging Points: Encouraging the use of sustainable transportation.
    • Ecological Construction Methods: Minimizing environmental disruption and promoting biodiversity.
    • Eco-Friendly Site Facilities: Implementing measures to reduce waste and resource consumption on construction sites.

By integrating these practices, we build not just structures, but a more sustainable future.

We are actively seeking further sustainable initiatives and have showcased our commitment by successfully executing a number of schemes utilising sustainable technologies.

The construction industry has a significant environmental footprint. At Harpers, we understand this responsibility and are committed to leading the way towards a more sustainable future.

Here is how we are making a difference:

Energy Efficiency Champions: We implement cutting-edge solutions like air source heat pumps and Passivhaus construction to reduce energy consumption in our buildings.

Waste Warriors: We prioritise waste reduction and implement robust recycling programs to minimise our environmental footprint on every project.

Innovation at Every Stage: From utilising solar panels for clean energy generation to installing electric vehicle charging points, we are constantly seeking innovative ways to build greener.

This dedication is evident in our completed development at Oak Tree Close in Bearley. This innovative project exemplifies our commitment to sustainable practices.  The development incorporates Passivhaus principles, resulting in highly energy-efficient structures that minimise heating and cooling needs. Furthermore, Oak Tree Close utilises modern methods of construction and technology to reduce our environmental impact.

The development is just one example of our commitment to building a greener future. We are constantly exploring and implementing innovative solutions to achieve our net zero goals.
