At Houseful, we place our responsibilities to people, the planet and our investors at the heart of what we do. Our mission is to balance progress with care, empathy and ethical values.
Growing our business sustainably is incredibly important to us. Having recently completed our first full carbon footprint analysis, we intend to launch a Net Zero strategy in 2023. Now that we have a clear understanding of our emissions, we will invest in expert advice and publish our Net Zero strategy at the end of the year.
The UK has some of the oldest housing stock in Europe, at least 60% of which are not energy efficient. Houseful is committed to supporting the decarbonisation of our homes.
Almost every UK home is heated by a gas boiler. This means we’re heating our buildings with fossil fuels and not retaining the heat we create. These homes will need to be decarbonised by 2050 in order to support a Net Zero future and avoid the heaviest impacts of global warming. At Houseful we connect with households daily so we’re in a unique position to support homeowners’ understanding of how to decarbonise their home and enable that journey.

At Houseful, we believe everyone should have a safe, comfortable place to call home. Yet almost 160,000 households are currently experiencing homelessness in Britain. In 2021, we launched a long-term partnership with Crisis, the national charity for people experiencing homelessness. Together, we are working to end homelessness today, tomorrow, and for good.

At Houseful we have an ESG Committee, a group of senior leaders from across the business. The committee works together to ensure clear, transparent reporting systems and to communicate with the broader business regularly on ESG matters and developments.
The committee meets quarterly to define long and short term plans and ambitions.
At the beginning of each year, our ESG committee works together to produce the annual ESG report covering the previous year. This uses data and storytelling to bring our ESG journey to life so we can communicate our progress to our employees and external parties.
