Hyde launches a new environmental, social and governance framework that will underpin its social purpose

Hyde: Further reading

Hyde has launched a new environmental, social and governance (ESG) framework that will underpin its social purpose, funding strategy and approach to partnerships.

The framework will help Hyde measure and manage its ESG impact, with transparency and accountability at the forefront.

HHyde's investment in an advanced ESG Framework follows on from the 2018 launch of its annual Value of a Social Tenancy report.

The report shows that good quality, well-managed social tenancies not only offer people a secure roof over their heads, but also saves the taxpayer millions of pounds in areas including education, policing and local authority expenditure.

A crucial area that Hyde's ESG impact reporting will support is the way it secures the public and private capital it requires to meet its core purpose and its ambitions - including addressing the green agenda, delivering the right homes in the right places and forging strong partnerships.

It commits to investing in sustainable housing, which not only helps to address climate change, but also supports the wellbeing of customers - both financial, through the reduction in fuel poverty and utility bills, and personal, in terms of health and quality of life.
