Cross Keys Homes will be off to the Houses of Parliament in November to collect its prestigious Green Apple Award.
The housing association has won this highly coveted award for its achievements in reducing its carbon footprint, and that of the homes it manages. The award in particular recognises the solar panel project rolled out by CKH, that has enabled 5,200 household to benefit from free electricity. It has led to a saving of 9,500 tonnes of CO2 emissions from our housing, as well as helping those tenants in fuel poverty to make great savings.
Lynda Murawski, Director of Communications and Chair of CKH’s Green Scene environmental working group, said, “It is great news to hear we have won this prestigious award for our environmental achievements. We have worked so hard to reduce the impact our business and our homes have on the environment, and the solar panel project has helped enormously, with well over half of our homes benefitting from free electricity.”
The presentation for the Green Apple Award will take place at the Houses of Parliament on 16 November.
