Summary

Sustainable development can be designed both as developing energy efficient homes using sustainable materials - to cut carbon emissions and provide affordable homes to heat - and developing mixed tenure communities and providing the services and opportunities that make places work.

Housing associations and co-operatives have a strong track record in sustainable development - from regenerating communities and providing good management and maintenance to developing highly energy efficient homes, providing mixed tenure new build developments and building sustainable places.

Housing associations and co-operatives also have experience in providing the services and support that help build sustainable places.

The SFHA supports members to achieve sustainable development by producing guidance and research on the topic.
