New is more energy efficient

The new homes by Persimmon benefit from a range of sustainable features designed to make homes energy efficient. These include highly efficient thermal insulation in the wall cavities and roof space, and argon-filled double glazed windows keeping warmth in and minimising heat loss. This means our homes carry more favourable energy efficiency ratings than traditional housing, achieving EPCs of either A or B. We also install highly energy-efficient appliances and heating systems such as A-rated condensing gas boilers and kitchen appliances, to minimise energy usage and keep bills down.

Building for tomorrow

We’re proud that we already build our homes to high levels of energy efficiency, but there’s still a way to go. We’ve made it our mission to have net-zero carbon homes in use by 2030, and for our own building operations to be net-zero by 2040.

To achieve this, we’re working to science-based carbon reduction targets in line with the Paris Agreement’s 1.5°C warming pledge, investing in low-carbon solutions and technology that will further reduce the carbon footprints of our homes and our impact on the planet.
