Impact Report

As part of Treveth’s drive to understand our wider positive social and environmental impact across Cornwall, we have completed our first Impact Report with independent support from The Good Economy.

This report sets out Treveth’s impact reporting framework and provides a baseline assessment of impact performance to date, covering the period from Treveth’s establishment in April 2019 to March 31, 2023. Future reports will provide annual updates on the company’s impact performance.

The Impact Report concludes that Treveth’s strategic projects show potential to drive regeneration in Cornish towns and cities. Each project is underpinned by strong placemaking principles with mixed uses that respond to local needs. Each project also considers environmental best practice and social value creation.

Carbon Accounting

Treveth is in full alignment with Cornwall Council’s ambition for Cornwall to be carbon neutral by 2030 and we are committed to achieving this as a business.

Calculating our carbon footprint, or ‘carbon account’, was the essential starting point to understand the impact of our activities on GHG emissions.

Our carbon footprint report has been produced by the Centre for Energy and Environment at the University of Exeter and is based on the main organisational carbon footprinting standards. We have collated data for the financial year 2022-23 to understand Treveth’s main carbon impacts and provide a baseline against which we can implement an effective carbon reduction strategy.

Carbon Reduction Strategy

Following on from Treveth’s carbon baseline report, we have produced our Carbon Reduction Strategy which identifies the key business activities we must challenge in order to reduce our GHG emissions. Treveth already creates very low energy-in-use properties, so we are now focusing to reduce the embodied energy of our properties on a per unit basis.

The main opportunities for reducing embodied GHG emissions involve focusing on site selection, design and material choice, along with reducing fuel used in construction.
