Sustainable development is high on the national and international agenda as the world strives to reverse the global impacts of climate change.
The projects range from investigating the provision of community heat and power plants on some of the larger development schemes to local, medium sized, wind turbines to meet localised electricity requirements.
As a result of climate change and the concerns relating to the traditional carbon fuels Hallam has commenced work on the promotion of renewable energy sources.
The whole of the Cranbrook new community in East Devon will be served by a Combined Heat and Power (CHP) District Heating System. The Energy Centre powering the System has been constructed and is currently providing heat and power to the first phase dwellings completed in 2012. The Energy Centre will produce up to 17 MW of energy that will supply all the energy requirements of Cranbrook and the business and general industrial development at the adjacent Skypark.
We have already secured planning permission for a two turbine 5 MW wind farm at High Haswell in County Durham and a fi ve turbine 12½ MW wind farm in Selby.
We anticipate making further applications for renewable energy production in the coming years.
Hallam Land Management is a part of the Henry Boot Group of Companies.
The Modern Slavery Act 2015 - Group Statement: View here
“Henry Boot PLC and its Group Companies has, following the introduction of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 (the “Act”) implemented a number of measures which seek to bring about greater transparency and scrutiny into our various supply chains, in order to combat slavery and trafficking activities. Further to this, over the past year we have been reviewing the measures put in place and seeking to identify additional actions to strengthen our due diligence and transparency. The aim of the Act is in line with our own ‘Henry Boot Way’ Vision and Values, as updated in 2017, which include ‘Respect’, ‘Integrity’ and ‘Collaboration’, all of which are relevant to our approach in this regard.
We continue to keep under regular review our Human Trafficking and Slavery Statement (the ‘Statement’), setting out the activities undertaken to reduce the risk of slavery and trafficking activities being present within our business operations. These measures include the introduction of an Anti-Slavery Policy, due diligence requirements, and mandatory contract clauses seeking compliance by our supply chain with appropriate anti-slavery measures. Additional measures that have recently been put into place to increase knowledge and vigilance throughout our organisation and supply chain include posters and awareness cards across our sites.
We will continue to regularly work with our partners, contractors, suppliers and other stakeholders, as well as keeping industry best practice under review, to monitor our approach for effectiveness, and consider any changes or additional measures as appropriate.”
