Novus’ Sustain team secures place on Greener Futures Partnership Framework

Novus Property Solutions has landed a place on a newly-launched framework by Greener Futures Partnership and Pretium Frameworks to provide a series of decarbonisation-focused retrofit works to a significant number of properties across England and Wales.

Works by Novus will be carried out through its dedicated Sustain service, which offers a one-stopshop service for the identification of and application for funding, as well as the execution of retrofit works to properties.

The framework aims to ensure that the stock of 300,000 properties achieves an EPC rating of at least C by 2030.

Greener Futures Partnership was set up by five housing associations across England and Wales, representing nine per cent of the housing market.

Charlie Cooley, Head of Operations at Novus Property Solutions said: “We’re delighted to have been awarded a place on this new framework by Greener Futures Partnership and Pretium Frameworks, demonstrating Novus’ growing reputation for the delivery of decarbonisation works across the social housing sector.

“Our dedicated Sustain team is highly experienced in providing end-to-end decarbonisation services, from supporting SHDF applications to the successful delivery of retrofit works. We look forward to delivering exceptional decarbonisation works across England and Wales over the next seven years, as well as applying our partnership approach to achieve quality results for residents.”

Webinar: How to create an ethical supply chain in FM

Are you confident that your contractors and suppliers meet ethical labour standards and human rights obligations?

For many FM services, managing multiple third parties in the supply chain can be a complex challenge. And, in a sector that relies heavily on migrant workers and 65 per cent of FM services facing difficulties in sourcing workers (Q4 2022 RICS survey), exposure to exploitation and modern slavery is a very real risk. With the UK one of the biggest destinations in Europe for trafficking of workers, you need full visibility of the people you work with, so you can minimise your risks and identify which part of your supply chain is most vulnerable.

FMJ, in partnership with Alcumus, is pleased to bring together a panel of experts to discuss how to create an ethical supply chain in FM.

Taking place at 11am on Wednesday 21st of June, the webinar will discuss:

  • The regulations to be aware of that are aimed at preventing human right abuses.
  • How to gain greater visibility of modern slavery compliance in the supply chain by having a robust verification process in place.
  • Steps to creating a compliant, ethical supply chain.
