We were delighted to win 'Best Sustainability Team’ at the 2017 SHIFT awards on 30th November.

Representatives from teams across the organsiation, who all work to improve our environmental sustainability, won the award against tough competition from Agility Eco and Catalyst Housing.

The award recognises our multi-departmental approach to sustainability, which requires all of our teams to work together. Our achievements include:

  • Electric car charging points and solar panels on new builds and existing blocks installed by our Development Team.
  • Repairs and Maintenance trialling energy monitoring tech
  • Bulk Waste Operatives starting an upcycling partnership
  • The Rents Team advising residents on energy savings in their homes and trial behavioural economics approaches

Sustainability is an important part of regenerating our area. Going forward we hope to build on these achievements to improve air quality in Poplar. Keep an eye out for ways you can get involved!
