Face Up to the Challenge of Eco-Housing, Builders Are Told; Construction of Energy-Efficient Homes Could Provide Skilled Jobs and Help Wales Meet Tough Targets on Climate Change
A CONSERVATION organisation has called for more ecologically sound housing to be built in Wales.
WWF Cymru, the Welsh arm of the global WWF, says the country is lagging behind when it comes to eco-friendly housing.
They have produced a ranking of the UK's top 20 residential builders with the Berkeley Group and Crest Nicholson emerging as leaders.
Barratt Homes, falling in fifth position, and Redrow, coming in seventh, were the only builders in the top 10 with a strong presence in Wales.
Morgan Parry, Head of WWF Cymru: "This is a challenging time for the industry but we think improving the sustainability of all new homes will help."
