It might be of use to see some recent feedback from our members
“Being a SHIFT member underlines an organisation's commitment to sustainability which is why we were keen to get on board. One of the key benefits is that businesses are able to have their performance independently evaluated. We work hard to limit our impact on the environment and this has been recognised with silver status from SHIFT.”
David Bennet, CEO, Sanctuary Housing Group
"The SHIFT assessment provided a baseline and realistic targets. The assessment recommendations are now being integrated within our strategy and action plans. It would have taken longer to gear up without our assessment.
We are very pleased with the results from this approach.”
Gwen Crawford, Director, Bolton at Home
“At AmicusHorizon, we’ve found the SHIFT events to be very well organised. We’ve also found the opportunity to network with housing sector experts and leaders within the green agenda incredibly useful. The low carbon retrofit event in Birmingham was most enjoyable. We’ve greatly appreciated being able to share best practice at these national events.
I’d highly recommend joining SHIFT to others.”
Patrick Chauvin, Director of Asset Services, AmicusHorizon
“Reducing environmental impacts is important to us all – at the HCA we have cut our own carbon emissions by 12% in the past 12 months – so I would encourage as many organisations as possible to join the SHIFT best practice group.”
Pat Ritchie, Chief Executive, Homes and Communities Agency
