Consultation on sustainable housing standard

Energy storage solutions for social housing

Sustainability for Housing (SfH) has launched a consultation into Version 2.0 of the Sustainability Reporting Standard for Social Housing (SRS).

After an initial series of surveys, focus groups and interviews with housing associations and funders, the proposed draft (SRS v2.0) includes new tenant satisfaction measures (TSMs), and external frameworks and guidance.

Reporting will also include a ‘comply or explain’ approach, along with a request to show year-on-year data comparisons.

The criteria have a greater focus on:

  • The quality of stock, including asbestos, legionella and damp and mould
  • Net zero strategies, retrofit works and efficiency improvements, including SAP ratings.
  • Disclosures around EDI policies and approaches, as well as the training and professional development of staff

SfH will be consulting on the changes throughout April and is seeking views from all stakeholders in the social housing sector.

All feedback will need to be submitted by 9.00am on 2nd May 2023.
