Establishing Grainger as a sustainability leader through active government engagement and industry debate.
What we want to achieve: Grainger’s ambition is to be the company to consult on issues related to the future of the UK private rented sector, including sustainability. We also aim to raise sustainability awareness and standards across the industry.
Why it matters: Through proactive engagement Grainger can shape, and be fully prepared for, the issues that will impact rental housing in the coming years.
