About ISHA

ISHA and the Environment

ISHA’s performance has been assessed as a sustainable housing organisation as a member of SHIFT (Sustainable Homes Index For Tomorrow). We are pleased to have attained their Silver award.  We are one of 34 Housing Associations nationally to have achieved this level.

"This award recognises the continuing commitment ISHA has to delivering environmental sustainability in all we do.  The Silver Award reflects the improvements and actions we have taken to help improve the lives of our customers and provide homes that meet high energy efficient standards, and help to tackle fuel poverty.  There is more to be done and we will be working hard to "Go for Gold" raising our environmental standards even higher over the coming years"  Stephen Stringer, ISHA Board Chair

Environmental Sustainability Strategy (272.33kb) 

The strategy covers a number of areas such as coordination and management, office practices, existing buildings and new build.  
In conjunction with the strategy the organisation have developed an action plan for improving our performance in four key areas.   The action plan is currently being reviewed.
  • tackling fuel poverty
  • improving the energy efficiency of customers homes
  • meeting carbon reduction targets
  • minimising our environmental impact

Going forward we are committed to working with our customers and others to achieve the above objectives

We have made improvements so far in the following areas:

  • Embedding thinking about sustainability issues across the association.
  • Providing training in sustainability awareness to staff
  • Setting targets for reducing the impact our offices have on the environment
  • Improving the energy advice we give to new and existing customers
  • Developing plans to retrofit more of our existing stock
  • Maintaining our track record in developing environmentally friendly housing
  • Reviewing our specifications to ensure we maximise use of green products
