Here at Scalesceugh Hall & Villas, creating sustainable, environmentally-friendly homes is a big part of our ethos. And following the government's announcement of a ‘Green Industrial Revolution’ climate plan in November 2020 with an aim to make Britain greener and cleaner, we’re proud to be ahead of the curve with many eco-friendly and energy-efficient features in our retirement properties.
Buildings are responsible for half the world’s energy use and half of its greenhouse gas emissions. Housing alone generates 29% of emissions in the UK.
Cars also account for a significant proportion of emissions in the UK - just over 18% - whilst transport emissions as a whole account for a third of the UK total.
