About the organisations:
Construction and development company, Cruden Group aim to improve the environment through innovation and build its homes around thoughtful design and innovative thinking.
ScottishPower is working on a better, greener future. Only generating renewable electricity, its domestic green tariffs are backed by 100% green electricity which is made by UK windfarms.
Key sustainability highlights:
The Cruden Group has expanded its green portfolio by signing a 3-year enhanced green energy supply contract with ScottishPower. Illustrating the group’s commitment to green energy housebuilding, it will always purchase electricity which comes exclusively from renewable sources, with 100% of green electricity from wind farms with zero CO2 emissions.
The Cruden Group builds around 1,500 new homes each year and together with ScottishPower, they are working on several market leading initiatives to offer more zero carbon alternatives including ground and air source heat pumps, low carbon heating solutions and photovoltaic solar panels.
In support of Cruden’s commitment to innovation and sustainability, ScottishPower as a Principal Partner for the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26), is working closely with the group to further develop a range of renewable and other clean, green energy solutions and smart technologies to reduce emissions and drive down homeowner energy bills.
The Cruden Group’s commitment to green energy also extends to their management offices which benefit from electricity from renewable sources via solar panels covering 90% of the office building roof.
