What does Kaenga do to be socially responsible?
There are several aspects to co-housing that make it more socially responsible than developer-led construction. These are:
- stronger focus on sustainability, with our "group buy" approach, it is more likely we can afford eco-friendly solutions such as: car-sharing, solar panels, grey water, water recovery, high-level insulation, etc... As co-housing also promotes smaller homes, the footprint per home is also smaller.
- stronger community and more neighbour contact means that people are less likely to end up in a difficult situation as community members can work together to solve issues.
- the cost reduction and reduced profit margins means that more people can own their own home.
