The motto of Ballast Nedam Development is ‘a head start on the future’. Taking responsibility belongs to this motto. Ballast Nedam Development therefore decided to develop only without gas in the future. This implies that we will not provide a gasconnection in the houses we develop any longer. In addition, this desicion results in developing more and more energy-neutral and energy-supplying houses. By doing this, we significantly contribute to reduce fossil fuel consumption.
Ballast Nedam Development takes a head start on the future, by anticipating on climate change and fulfilling the Dutch objective to be without gas in 2050. We do all this in the interest of society. Furthermore, this desicion gives further effect to the Sustainable Development Goals Charter of the UN, which we signed.
Being a developer, we often work together with partners. Of course, equality remains the best foundation for cooperation and we maintain an open dialogue with our partners in which we choose our sustainability measures. By means of this desicion, we also aim to motivate others in helping to augment the sustainability of the Netherlands, being able to move limits together.
