Celebrating two years of being carbon neutral!

Celebrating two years of being carbon neutral!
5th March 2024

As part of Leaders Romans Group (LRG), we're extremely proud to announce our sustained achievement of carbon neutrality for a second consecutive year. 

This accomplishment highlights our unwavering commitment to environmental stewardship, having reached this milestone eight years ahead of our 2030 objective, first in 2022 and continuing through 2023. This success is part of our broader strategy of investing in sustainability and responsible business practices.

A cornerstone of our environmental efforts is our dedication to restoration and conservation projects, significantly contributing to our carbon neutrality. We have undertaken several notable initiatives and has committed to continuing this work throughout 2024 and 2025.



Restoring Biodiversity: We've rejuvenated 70,000 square metres of wildflower meadows, creating habitats for native wildlife and supporting biodiversity.

Marine Conservation: Initiatives include the restoration of 300 square metres of native oyster beds in The Solent, aiding in the recovery of native oyster populations and the revitalisation of four kelp sites along the Sussex coast, enhancing marine biodiversity.

Sustainable Materials: The company has recycled 8,000 for-sale/to-let boards, further reducing our environmental footprint and achieving zero waste to landfill, emphasising our commitment to sustainability in all operations.



Our path to carbon neutrality has been paved by several key strategies, including:

Energy Efficiency: Through significant efforts to improve efficiency across operations, we have reduced emissions even with increased electricity consumption.

Green Electricity: Adopting renewable energy sources has been crucial in reducing our carbon footprint.

Environmental Management Action Plan: This plan has been instrumental in identifying and targeting emission reduction opportunities.

Sustainable Partnerships: Collaborations, such as with Green the UK, which led to the planting of over 26,000 trees, sequestering at least 35 tonnes of carbon annually, have been vital in offsetting our carbon emissions.

Investment in Carbon Credits: We have balanced emissions by investing in carbon credits. This process involved purchasing and retiring carbon credits equivalent to our emissions, thereby achieving a state of carbon neutrality.



Our comprehensive approach to sustainability, integrating direct emission reductions with strategic offsetting initiatives, exemplifies our commitment to environmental stewardship and corporate responsibility. This approach led to the remarkable achievement of LRG winning the Negotiator Gold Award for Sustainable Agency of the Year last year.

David Wilson, Chief Operating Officer, said, "Our steadfast commitment to sustainability and active community engagement has earned us the prestigious Negotiator Gold Award for Sustainable Agency of the Year and reinforces our position as a frontrunner in the property sector."

"LRG's journey towards environmental excellence is far from over; we are dedicated to ongoing enhancements and establishing new, ambitious environmental objectives. Our goal is to elevate our operations and facilities with an unwavering commitment to eco-friendly principles, thereby ensuring a profound and enduring positive impact on the planet and the communities we are privileged to serve."
