The construction sector is a significant user of plastic packaging and generates a lot of plastic waste each year. Changing Streams was established to provide the sector with the data and creative solutions to back efforts to drive change through its supply chain.
The deal with the not-for-profit body, and its partners the University of Liverpool, comes as Hassett Homes steps up ways to reduce their own and their buyers’ carbon footprints further.
“We’re already a long way toward achieving our commitment to create carbon zero homes but there’s some work to do to drive out plastic usage in our materials choices and supply chain practices,” says Hassett Homes Managing Director Jamie Blennerhassett.
“Changing Streams’ vision completely aligns with our own philosophy and is a clear reason why together we can make change happen and get real results.
“I see this as a positive step forward in achieving our purpose to create lasting harmony between the built and natural environments. Small changes in the way we think, feel and act today will have a big impact on the way we live tomorrow,” added Mr Blennerhassett.
Changing Streams founder Neal Maxwell said: “This is an important moment for us as we strengthen our presence in the house-building sector. I’m looking forward to building on our work together and moving towards ever-closer engagement with the University through projects and other initiatives that will enable home-buyers to live more sustainable lives.”
