Sustainability performance stars at housing awards

Over 200 housing and sustainability professionals came together in London on Thursday 30 November to celebrate outstanding achievements in sustainability at the SHIFT Awards 2017, the sustainability awards for the housing sector.

As the only awards celebrating sustainability in housing, the SHIFT Awards (created by sustainability consultants and subsidiary of Hastoe, Sustainable Homes) are vital in championing a going through hard times by shining a light on those projects at the forefront of environmental sustainability.

The Awards, presented by leading environmental journalist Lucy Siegle, showcased the very best sustainable housing projects across 10 exciting categories – this year also including one dragons’ den style award.

Categories included “Best small retrofit project”, “Best corporate sustainability project”, and “Sustainable Housing provider of the year” which was this year sponsored by Hastoe.

The winners were selected by an expert judging panel, including Hastoe Director of New Business Development.

Hastoe Group Chief Executive Sue Chalkley, who delivered a keynote speech at the Awards, said: “The SHIFT Awards are a testament to the fantastic contribution the housing sector can make to sustainability and wider society.

“The way these Awards have grown in recent years shows how deeply so many in the housing sector care about – and want to celebrate – sustainability, energy efficiency and quality design.

“Congratulations to this year’s winners and to all involved in these important Awards.”
