Sustainability at Acorn
Investing in projects with Acorn Property Invest do more than allow investors to diversify their portfolios and buy into the vibrant UK property market. Their investment will help fund the build of bespoke, sustainable new developments.
Creating sustainable new homes and buildings is at the heart of what we do. Our new build homes are energy efficiency rated EPC A&B and can save homeowners an average of over £2,600 a year in running costs* compared to an older property. Our developments are designed to enhance local communities, nurture local habitats, and create an environment that supports future generations.
Acorn Property Group is at the forefront of sustainable development, from using energy-efficient materials, carbon offsetting and increasing biodiversity to incorporating electric vehicle (EV) charging points, photovoltaic (PV) panels, air/ground source heat pumps, and bee-friendly landscaping.
