SHIFT is the sustainability standard for the housing sector. Provided by Sustainable Homes, recognised by the HCA and backed by Government, it is an independent assessment and accreditation scheme that demonstrates organisations are delivering against challenging environmental targets.
The SHIFT assessment measures organisations against more than 50 environmental criteria, including CO2 emissions, water use, landfill waste and response to climate change risks. Organisations that are assessed receive SHIFT Commended, Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum accreditation, depending on their performance, and a bespoke report with tailored recommendations on how to improve.

Organisations that achieve SHIFT accreditation become part of an exclusive network that gets a range of additional benefits from Sustainable Homes, including consultancy support, exclusive events, input to lobbying campaigns, offers from SHIFT partners, discounts for training courses and tailored support and advice.
