The regional housing association, emh homes (part of emh group), joined YES Energy Solutions and leading boiler manufacture Glow-worm, to coordinate an affordable heating programme throughout the East Midlands.

Keen to expand its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) credentials, emh homes joined the partnership in December 2013 to help thousands of homeowners and private renting tenants within their catchment area. With similar values and objectives, the company was keen to develop an ethical approach to central heating installations and supports the wider community beyond its own tenants.

A community pool fund was established to help fund boiler upgrades for residences that don’t quite meet the criteria for the Government’s ECO scheme (a programme designed to offer eligible householders grants for home improvements). For every boiler installed, a percentage of profit was allocated to the pool fund to support the householders in the greatest of need.

Not only did the partnership help residents access ECO grants to cover or contribute towards their boiler and central heating upgrades, but through the pool fund it helped a broader range of householders to keep warm and drive down their energy costs.

Our ethical partnership was recognised within the industry and short listed as a finalist at the National Heating & Ventilation Awards on the 24th April in London.
