CALA Homes 2030 net zero carbon target

The Scottish Housebuilder, CALA Homes, owned by insurance company L&G have appointed two sustainability analysts, Aliver Cooney and Ryan Menezies as part of its pledge to deliver zero carbon homes by 2030.

Both companies promised to make all homes produced operationally zero carbon by 2030, in line with the Scottish government’s 2045 net zero target. Alongside CALA, L&G run an affordable housing , build to rent, modular housing and later living arm and have invested over £1.6bn in residential development during 2020.

Aliver and Ryan plan to improve air quality and water consumption in the first instance before moving on to technologies to assist CALA in delivering net zero homes. A number of other volume housebuilders such as Taylor Wimpey & Barratt Homes have announced their aim to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

CALA will be partnering with the Construction Scotland Innovation Centre, to work with three MSc students for its Built Environment Innovation Masters Fund, to understand further how to reduce carbon in new-build homes.
