Sustainable Housing Awards 2014: Winners Announced


Please view the full gallery here »

These awards put the spotlight on the best-of-the-best in the housing sector.

With housing accounting for 25% of UK carbon emissions, reducing emissions from new and existing homes will be key to achieving the targeted 34% reduction by 2020.

Despite tough conditions, social landlords have found themselves best placed in housing to take advantage of the support available. Landlords have already secured millions of pounds in subsidies to retrofit homes with insulation and other energy-saving devices. And as the new subsidy for renewable heating systems in the home, the Renewable Heat Incentive, is poised to begin, social landlords are already gearing up.  

The awards lead the way in social housing's pioneering role in greening the UK’s housing stock, cutting emissions and tackling fuel poverty.

The Sustainable Housing Awards 2014 took place at the Lancaster London Hotel on Friday 17 October 2014, presented by one of the world’s greatest living explorers, Sir Ranulph Fiennes.


This year’s awards attracted senior industry figure including representatives of government departments, chief executives of leading social housing providers and representatives of the main trade and professional bodies.
