Elizabeth Howard is Melin’s director of finance. In this case study she shares more about Melin’s experience of going through MORhomes Sustainable Housing Assessment and the benefits the organisation has felt since going through the process.
In advance of MORhomes’ new Sustainable Bond, Melin was one of the first to pilot MORhomes’ new Sustainable Housing Assessment. A first-of-its-kind tool comprising of 11 questions, it measures housing providers’ ESG performance (environmental, social, governance) against an objective standard. The SHA aims to help housing associations effectively report on and benchmark ESG whilst also providing MORhomes with a clear and consistent way to demonstrate overall impact to investors.
South-East Wales based Melin Homes owns and manages more than 4,000 homes in Blaenau Gwent, Monmouthshire, Torfaen, Newport and Powys. True to its social purpose, Melin strives to make a positive impact on the environment and the communities in which it operates.
