National Conference: Brave New World – Saving money, efficiencies and new finance

October 11, 2016

Brave New World: Saving money, efficiencies and new finance

The past 18 months have been a particularly tumultuous time for housing providers: rent reductions, a new government and uncertainty over green funding, the need to cut back on expenditure and find new sources of finance is more vital than ever. This sometimes means cutting back on sustainability – but this doesn’t need to be the case. Sustainable Homes will be bringing you a conference that will help you navigate the choppy waters of this brave new world, but without leaving sustainability behind.

At the SHIFT national conference Brave New World: Saving money, efficiencies and new finance, delegates are offered the opportunity to spend a comprehensive and practical day exploring new ways of delivering warm, sustainable homes whilst using sustainable thinking to contribute to the success of your business. Hear from those striving for ways to operate more efficiently, reduce costs and improve the quality of what they do. We will be also be exploring alternative funding and investment models in such challenging times.

By attending this SHIFT conference you will:


  • Develop an understanding of the impact of energy efficiency on social landlords’ income and business plans
  • Learn from best practice and “lean & green” case studies, where landlords are delivering outstanding organisational cost savings without compromising their sustainability ethos
  • Become aware of alternative funding pots and green investment options for your business


Join us in Manchester for a day packed with interesting topics, experienced speakers, and networking.
