I am now helping housing associations to get SHIFT environmental sustainability standard.
SHIFT is the sustainability standard for the housing sector. SHIFT accreditation demonstrates delivery against challenging environmental targets, provides a route-map for improvement and allows organisations to compare performance against their peers.
I will help you develop the strategy you need to get SHIFT accreditation, including advice on environmental policy, maintenance and procurement.
The first housing association I helped with SHIFT were aiming for Bronze standard. With my help, they were able to get Silver standard at the very first attempt. I am now helping them to go for Gold!
There is a strong business case for your housing association to go for SHIFT, including:
- lower running costs for your corporate operations
- lower void rates and rent arrears
- counts towards your social return on investment or social audit scores, improving your reputation.
SHIFT is much simpler than some other systems such as ISO14001 which means that I don’t have to charge you the earth in order for you to help save the earth. Please contact me to discuss how I can help.
