Catalyst wins at SHIFT Sustainability Awards 2018

Shift Awards 2018Catalyst picked up two awards at the SHIFT Sustainability Awards 2018  and were highly commended in one category.

We were announced as Sustainable Housing Provider of the Year, an award we previously won in 2016, and won Sustainable New Build Project of the Year for our Wornington Green scheme in Kensington.

We were also Highly Commended for our Resident Engagement Project on Sustainable Living for Havelock, in Southall.

In additional, we officially received our Gold landlord status at the ceremony. We were one of the first housing associations to achieve Gold status in the SHIFT Accreditation in 2012. No landlord has yet achieved Platinum, the highest award in the SHIFT Accreditation, and we’re now planning how we can achieve this.

Stephen Edwards, Sustainability Manager, said: “This is an amazing achievement for Catalyst and demonstrates the commitment and hard work of not just of our Sustainability team but all those across Catalyst who have supported and worked on making our projects and operations more sustainable.

“Winning these awards will help distinguish Catalyst within the sector and drive our ongoing work to meet our sustainability targets and create sustainable homes, sustainable communities and a sustainable business.”

The SHIFT awards recognise outstanding sustainability projects and achievements that have made an impact in the housing sector.
