Dec. 20, 2011 - PRLog -- The only initiative to provide a comprehensive environmental benchmark for affordable housing providers, Sustainable Homes Index For Tomorrow (SHIFT) counts the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA), WWF, the Mayor of London and UK Green Building Council (UKGBC) among its supporters.

Devonshires, well-known for taking a down-to-earth approach and delivering practical and robust legal advice, provides essential legal knowledge through its dedicated and growing energy and climate change practice.  Currently the firm is advising a number of private sector, public sector and third sector clients on a range of energy and climate change matters, dealing with procurement, projects, commercial, finance, property and regulatory aspects.

Paul Buckland, Partner of Devonshires Solicitors, said: “Devonshires has always understood and advised on all aspects of the social housing sector, especially community regeneration. With this understanding we host a full range of services which have achieved nationwide coverage and recognition. We are delighted to partner with SHIFT not least as this offers means of further supporting our clients as they address issues such as fuel poverty, rising energy costs and the climate change agenda.”

Andrew Eagles, Managing Director of Sustainable Homes also welcomed the sponsorships, saying: “We are very pleased to welcome Devonshires Solicitors to SHIFT. Devonshires is a professional and environmentally conscious law firm with a great commitment to environmental responsibility and sustainable procurement.”

SHIFT is the comprehensive environmental benchmark for affordable housing providers. The SHIFT Index is administrated by Sustainable Homes. In addition to Devonshires Solicitors, sponsors include The Apollo Group, Diamond Build, H+H, Inside Housing, Kingspan Potton, Mears, SolarTech and VPhase.  Members are accredited on a scale of Bronze to Platinum. SHIFT was launched in 2008 and has grown in popularity since then to now have over 48 organisations involved.  SHIFT is recognised by the Homes and Communities Agency as a useful tool to reduce environmental impacts and to improve “place-making”.  The Chartered Institute of Housing also recognises SHIFT as an environmental accreditation scheme.
