Sustainable Homes is a leading training and advisory consultancy. Founded in 1997 we are 100% owned by Hastoe Housing Group, a registered housing provider.

We have particular expertise in providing training on environmental standards, such as the Code for Sustainable Homes; and retrofitting existing dwellings and using the Green Deal. Specific training courses include:

    • Qualify as a Code for Sustainable Homes assessor
    • Energy Efficiency for asset managers

    • Saving money in the home – for residents and staff

Sustainable Homes has completed research and guidance on climate change adaptation and mitigation in the built environment on behalf of the Environment Agency, Department for Environment, Farming and Rural Affairs and the Homes and Communities Agency.

works very closely with affordable housing providers. In 2008 with support of the government such as the Homes and Communities Agency, WWF-UK, UK Green Building Council, Mayor of London and the National Housing Federation, an environmental best practice group was formed. The Sustainable Homes Index For Tomorrow assesses how well registered providers are mitigating and adapting to the effects of climate change. The assessment methodology, now used throughout the UK was formed with initial register provider members.
