HomeViews has been recognised as a key assessment criterion for Community & Customer Engagement by the NextGeneration Sustainability Benchmark for UK housebuilders.
Executive Committee members Homes England, JLL, the UKGBC and Lloyds Bank selected HomeViews as one of the 2022-24 benchmarking criteria in response to the platform’s dominant market coverage of verified residential property reviews and its rapidly growing visitor numbers.
HomeViews data will be used alongside information from the Home Builders Federation (HBF) to assess housebuilders on Community & Customer Engagement – one of the 15 ESG criteria assessed.
What is Nextgeneration?
The NextGeneration Sustainability Benchmark is an annual benchmarking standard that assesses the UK’s 25 largest housebuilders, as well as additional member companies. The Benchmark’s main objectives are to achieve greater transparency and accountability in the industry, and to drive continuous improvement via healthy competition around ESG principles.
These goals align perfectly with those of HomeViews since its inception. The review platform was founded to provide consumers and the industry with greater transparency around performance and quality, and supply data insights that allow the industry to make targeted strategic adjustments.
Leading UK developers, housebuilders and housing associations are also recognising HomeViews as a crucial window onto resident sentiment, as well as a powerful marketing tool that positions residents as their biggest advocates. An enviable list of more than 40 partners includes Berkeley Homes, Hill Homes, Barratt London and Network Homes.
