At the end of each benchmarking cycle, NextGeneration releases its Annual Report. This contains the Benchmarking results for the year, from which wider insights are also drawn. This is alongside research findings from the year’s theme, relating to sustainable homebuilding.


Homebuilders are facing increasing consumer, investor and policy pressures to
deliver more homes, more sustainably. The simultaneous growth of green finance
initiatives is a welcome encouragement to homebuilders to deliver greater
sustainability. Favourable funding terms, including reduced interest rates and
higher loan to value ratios, are available to companies and projects that meet
agreed sustainability targets. This is resulting in green incentives for leaders, while
laggards risk difficulties maintaining market access.

The 2021 Report reveals the results of the NextGeneration Benchmark and
highlights how sustainability performance and finance are increasingly entwined.
