Going Green - sustainable branch is template for network

A Leaders branch office revamp has been launched with claims of it being fully sustainable.

The Lewes branch of Leaders - part of the Leaders Romans Group - is being promoted by the firm as a template for sustainable office refurbs across the brand network. 

David Wilson, group chief operating officer of Leaders Romans Group, says: "Now is the time for the property sector to embrace the climate change challenge and step up to help turn the industry green. We are committed to playing our part in halting climate change and the devastating effect it has on our environment, which is why we have pledged to become carbon neutral by 2030."


"Customers expect more responsibility from the property services they use and interact with, and as an integral part of the local community in each of our nationwide branch network, we want to play our part in delivering the UK's wider carbon reduction goals", he added.

The event saw the official unveiling of the branch's new sustainable fit-out, fully powered by renewable green energy. 

The company claims low-flow taps save up to 50 per cent of water consumption, and low-carbon paints release less gas than traditional paints. In addition, LED timed lighting has been installed to reduce electricity wastage, and the installation of a historical image and map was made using sustainable wall vinyl. 

Existing flooring and furniture were re-used and the branch has already been using recycled for sale and to let boards for the last three years.

The group recently announced an enhancement to its sustainability partnership with an enterprise called Green The UK. 

The partnership now encompasses restoring wildflower meadows, planting trees, helping migrate and restore native oyster populations in The Solent and supporting a project to restore kelp along the Sussex coastline. To date, the group have planted 16,000 trees, or the equivalent of 16 football pitches.

    Carbon neutral by 2030? Does that mean no staff, we are carbon they want to get rid of

    The conservatives have been attacking British people since time immemorial. Churchill was bitterly resented by them. They were the appeasement party.

    An expert on energy supplies told farage GB news that the cost of greening the electricity grid is possibly £3 trillion and we could be faced with regular blackouts. I spent a lot of time in the energy industry and have been dreading this.
