Is Home House the greenest club in London?


The Home House Collection, which includes the private members club Home House and business club Home Grown, has become the first private members club group to be awarded the Butterfly Mark certification. Here’s how…

Home House Earns Butterfly Mark Accreditation

What is the Butterfly Mark?

The Butterfly Mark is one of the luxury industry’s leading sustainability certifications. It is an independent certification that verifies for consumers and other stakeholders that a luxury business is operating in a sustainable and responsible way. To achieve the Butterfly Mark certification, companies must achieve set standards in each area of assessment: Environment, Social, and Governance (ESG). 

How did Home House earn it?

The Home House Collection has a heritage of over 250 years. The club has implemented several initiatives to achieve the accreditation, including sustainable supplier sourcing, increased energy efficiency, and supporting local community programmes to improve the environment in which they operate.

Home Grown, the business club sibling to Home House, is a global community of entrepreneurs, investors, and trusted industry experts. The club hosts a variety of spaces to support growth entrepreneurs and investors, and has partnered with Ecologi, an initiative supporting responsible tree planting where ecologically appropriate species are planted at the right place and time, and trees are guarded from natural and man-made threats. As a club, they have funded several hundred trees and will continue to do so for every new member that joins Home Grown.

The Home House Collection conducted its first carbon assessment across scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions, using the results to set clear reduction targets which have been submitted to Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi). The members’ club switched to 100 percent renewable electricity in 2022 and has set up further ambitious climate targets such as reducing gas usage by 10 percent and reducing electricity usage by 10 percent year on year to achieve net zero. In addition, Positive Luxury supported the club in implementing a Supplier Code of Conduct to help assess existing and new suppliers. 

Baker Street Quarter Partnership

The Home House Collection is a member of Baker Street Quarter Partnership, a Business Improvement District, and is working collaboratively to transform Baker Street’s surrounding area. By creating small public gardens, such as the Wild West Garden, planting trees, and implementing smarter recycling and traffic calming initiatives, Home House and Baker Street Quarter are actively helping to reduce emissions and improve the quality of life in the area.

How Does It Work?

August facilitates effortless holiday home ownership; with fractional ownership, multiple people can own and enjoy up to five residences across Europe. August finds, buys, designs and renovates all five homes to an exceptional standard across five sought-after European destinations, taking care of all admin and maintenance – and you get to call all of them home for less than the price of one.

It’s the next level in effortless travelling and home-ownership, and members of August’s exclusive community holiday an average of 12 weeks per year. There are five collections to choose from, spanning Europe’s most iconic destinations, including the French Riviera, Tuscany, Mallorca, the Alps and the Cotswolds – all highly-sought regions you’ll want to visit year-round, with easy flight connections. Each home is welcoming, family friendly and features stylish yet timeless interiors curated by experts, charmingly matched to the destination.

Why It Makes Sense

Full Ownership

Not only will you get to holiday in these five gorgeous houses, but every family or individual has collective ownership. This is an equity purchase, with real ownership, transparency and control.

More For Your Money

With shares starting from €365,000, you can part-own over €7,500,000 of prime real estate for a fraction of the cost. Plus, with five destinations at your disposal, you’re not restricted to just one property to call your second home.

Hassle-Free

August takes all of the hassle out of holiday home ownership, managing the purchase, maintenance and management of every home, including everything from housekeeping to gardening, cleaning the pool filter to paying the bills. If you’ve been put off holiday home ownership due to language barriers, unfamiliar legal and administrative processes, a lack of market expertise or simply not being in the area for viewings, August is the perfect antidote, allowing you to simply show up after all the hard work has been done, lie back and enjoy your dream property.

Stylish

With a wealth of experienced interior designers underpinning the collection, your five properties are carefully renovated and designed to expertly blend home comforts with modern technology. Welcome home.
