Sustainability & Environment

Hydro is committed to promoting the sustainable development agenda. Our cutting edge design and technology enables zero carbon and highly sustainable developments.

Intelligent architecture, modern building methods, use of green materials, renewables and energy efficient systems are just a few of the elements that go into creating a Hydro property.

In a flood event Hydro’s properties have an added and unique environmental benefit.

The design principle itself contributes to increasing the capacity of the flood plain which therefore reduces the run off of flood waters onto neighbouring areas, lessening the overall impact to the community.

  • Potential to achieve Code Levels 5 and 6 for sustainable homes.
  • Environmentally sustainable development
  • 100% reduction in CO² emissions achievable
  • Reduced fossil fuel dependency
  • Modern methods of construction
  • Use of green roofs, solar photovoltaics, water-coupled heat pumps, etc.

The frequency of severe flooding across Europe is set to double by 2050 and over the same period there could be a nearly fivefold increase in the annual economic losses resulting from floods, a study has found.
