Octavia Celebrates Environmental Award

SHIFT Awards

Octavia were recognised for the quality of their homes at a prestigious environmental awards scheme hosted by Sustainable Homes. 

On winning another Silver Shift Award, this award analyses the environmental performance of social landlords’ housing stock, existing and planned, as well as offices and operations, with 45 weighted questions covering measures such as energy efficiency, water use, waste management and adaptation to climate change.

Every two years members receive an independent, in-depth assessment, comparing them with other housing providers and suggesting ways to improve. The awards, attended by over 500 people from the sector, were announced at a conference for social landlords in Olympia, London on Wednesday 26 November.
