The Sustainable Homes Index For Tomorrow, SHIFT, is the UK's leading independent sustainability benchmark and best practice learning network.
SHIFT members own and manage homes for over two million residents nationwide.
SHIFT was developed by Sustainable Homes in partnership with the Tenants Services Authority, WWF, Bank of Scotland Corporate and the UK Green Building Council.
SHIFT members are recognised as environmental leaders. SHIFT can help you with:
SHIFT members commit to independent assessment, peer to peer learning and continual improvement. Members benefit from a UK wide support network with access to expertise and guidance. As a body, SHIFT members represent over one million homes and have substantial influence in the housing sector.
Organisations join SHIFT at all stages of their sustainability journey. Most come to SHIFT looking for access to real learning, some with little prior experience of addressing environmental issues. Some members come with very strong existing credentials and are looking to boost this through external accreditation and learning from others. Members can, and do, achieve real, tangible improvements through SHIFT.
“The SHIFT assessment provided a baseline and realistic targets. The assessment recommendations are now being integrated within our strategy and action plans. It would have taken longer to gear up without our assessment. We are very pleased with the results from this approach.”
