Less than a week left to book for SFHA's Climate Change and Sustainability event

Sessions for those working in energy efficiency, fuel poverty, climate change and sustainability.

Posted In

SFHA’s Housing Now, Housing’s Future: Climate Change and Sustainability Conference, taking place on 4 February, has sessions for those working in energy efficiency, fuel poverty, climate change and sustainability.  

Delegates will hear directly from the Scottish Government about its plans to work with the social housing sector to achieve energy efficiency and climate change targets. You’ll also learn how conference sponsors Changeworks, Scotland’s leading environmental charity, can support the work of housing associations and co-operatives as well as their tenants.  

The event also includes sessions on tenement retrofit, electric vehicles, and how to increase the impact of your work. The Existing Homes Alliance (ExHA) will give an overview of the Scottish Government’s recently published Climate Change Action Plan update and discuss the forthcoming Heat in Buildings and Fuel Poverty Strategies, exploring what they mean for the social housing sector and how ExHA is aiming to influence this work. 

Here are some of the conference highlights:

Collaborative Commitment on Climate  

West of Scotland Housing Association, Keep Scotland Beautiful and the Carbon literacy Project will share their experiences and discuss how we can all play our part in Scotland’s transition to a low carbon future.   

Certified Sustainable Housing Label 

Link Group has become the first housing association in Scotland to achieve an internationally recognised accreditation, the ‘Certified Sustainable Housing Label’, awarded by RITTERWALD Consulting. This session will hear from Link Group Chief Executive Jon Turner on the benefits of the accreditation. 

Working in partnership to tackle climate change and improve energy efficiency:  

Hear from SFHA and Changeworks Chief Executives Sally Thomas and Teresa Bray on how the two organisations are working together for the benefit of SFHA members. Catriona MacKean, Deputy Director of the Scottish Government Better Homes Division, will discuss how the government will work more closely with the social housing sector and SFHA as it accelerates its work on the 2045 net-zero target.
