Looking ahead: the future of sustainability and housing

The last two years have seen a lot of doom and gloom around the sector. The rent cut, Brexit and general uncertainty about the future has meant that sustainability has taken a back seat. But now is the time to move beyond the negativity and look ahead to how you should be using sustainability to deliver value for money, much needed efficiencies and quality customer service.

At Looking ahead: the future of sustainability and housing we will consolidate a number of themes Sustainable Homes is working on into one accessible event. This year is about looking ahead and setting a positive standard for sustainability within housing. Whether this is through technology being able to deliver value for money; better scrutiny of your contractor and maintenance supply chains to realise savings or understanding how you can deliver effectively on modular construction this year’s conference will deliver different, more usable outcomes whether you are a Sustainability Manager or Head of Finance.

What’s new in 2017?
