K Green Economy lags behind
following launch of Europe’s most advanced eco village
The Oxford Sustainable Group has designed Oxford Park using its Oxford 360 degree Sustainability Index. This has allowed it to create a community that is well in advance of UN Principles of Responsible Investment (PRI) norms for sustainability. This considers the broader requirements of the residents, surrounding economic, environmental, energy, educational, transport and leisure needs as well as long-term job creation, regeneration, finance and investment requirements. The Oxford Sustainable Group has shown that by taking a holistic approach to sustainable development it can increase profitability while benefitting other stakeholders including residents, the local and wider economcy, society and environment.
“Sustainability means a lot more than planning carbon neutral buildings or trendy underground transport systems,” said Hadley Barrett, chief executive of OSG. “We can only create truly sustainable communities if we consider all of the stakeholders in a project. That includes government, investors, and the entire supply chain – as well as the people who will live and work there – and be able to supply a sustainable product at the right price. True sustainability does not mean higher prices.
“We have a practical and down-to-earth approach for Oxford Park that is successful, sustainable and economically viable – investors do not need to turn to projects in the Middle East for green growth. We would like to replicate the planning success of Oxford Park in the UK but we need simplified regulation which allows ’good developers’ to be fast-tracked rather than held back. We do not need more definitions of carbon free homes, we need facilitating regulation which allows trusted partners to move quickly and effectively and bring about positive changes through entrepreneurship. Practical government agencies from Finland and other locations have been asking us to help them replicate the success of Oxford Park in their countries. Currently the UK is lagging behind.”

Nice post. I study something tougher on totally different blogs everyday. It will all the time be stimulating to read content from other writers and follow just a little one thing from their store. I’d want to make use of some with the content material on my weblog whether you don’t mind. Natually I’ll give you a link in your internet blog. Thanks for sharing.
An interesting discussion is worth comment. I think that you should write more on this topic, it might not be a taboo subject but generally people are not enough to speak on such topics. To the next. Cheers
