Sustainable Homes Index for Tomorrow (SHIFT)

North Wales Housing has been recognised with a Silver award for the sustainability of their homes in a prestigious environmental awards scheme. The SHIFT (Sustainable Homes Index for Tomorrow) benchmarking scheme, endorsed by the government, analyses the environmental performance of housing associations.

The assessment process covered all aspects of North Wales Housing’s operation including offices, purchasing, new build, existing properties and more. Weighted questions measure aspects such as energy efficiency, water use, waste and adaptation to climate change.

North Wales Housing was first assessed in 2014 and the latest assessment was awarded in 2016.
