Sava has recently been approved as an endorser of the Sustainability Reporting Standard for Social Housing (SRS).  

The Sustainability Reporting Standard for Social Housing (SRS) was launched in 2021 by Sustainability for Housing, an organisation dedicated to promoting sustainable growth within social housing. This initiative seeks to transform how finance is accessed in the sector by aligning with the growing focus on environmental, social, and governance (ESG) credentials among investors. 

The SRS introduces a standardised reporting framework for the social housing sector, enabling providers to publish annual results. This system allows social housing organisations to benchmark their performance against the sector average, providing a clear picture of where they stand. By doing so, the SRS not only facilitates transparency and accountability but also encourages continuous improvement and sustainability efforts across the sector. 

Since its launch, the Standard has been widely adopted throughout the UK, with nearly 150 housing providers, both large and small, implementing it. This achievement reflects the SRS’s initial goal of broad adoption across the sector. Furthermore, it has gained the endorsement of 36 funding bodies, managing assets totalling over £1 trillion.  

We are looking forward to supporting organisations by providing the data needed to collate their annual results. Sava can provide data insights in a variety of ways to assist housing providers with their reporting requirements.
