About ISHA


Sustainable housing

ISHA’s performance has been assessed as a sustainable housing organisation as a member of SHIFT (Sustainable Homes Index For Tomorrow).

ISHA won Gold accredtation in September 2018.

I’m delighted ISHA has been awarded the SHIFT Gold Award. This is recognition of the importance we place on environmental sustainability. We work hard to understand our negative environmental impacts and take action to reduce them.
- Stephen Stringer, (then) Chair of ISHA

This journey began with ISHA achieving Bronze in 2013 and Silver in 2014. Achieving Gold means that we are not only committed to achieving sustainability but are backing our words with action.

SHIFT is the sustainability standard for the housing sector and is provided by Sustainable Homes. It is an independent assessment and accreditation scheme that demonstrates organisations are delivering against challenging environmental targets. SHIFT drives change by providing organisations with recommendations for improvement and comparing their performance against their peers. SHIFT helps organisations improve the quality of life for their customers and staff through higher quality homes.

Environmental sustainability strategy

ISHA’s environmental sustainability strategy (pdf, 278kb) focuses on the following objectives to:

  • tackle fuel poverty
  • improve the energy efficiency of our customers’ homes
  • continue to meet our carbon reduction targets
  • minimise the environmental impacts of our activities.

This strategy is divided into three sections:

  • strategy and management
  • office practices and Existing buildings
  • new build.

Each section has a brief statement of the outcome ISHA wishes to achieve, and a summary of the current position. The activities needed to achieve the proposed outcome are outlined in the action plan the latest version of which is available on our website.
