The Housing Finance Corporation (THFC), an early adopter of the SRS, has published its second annual SRS report which includes data from 29 borrowers.
The ‘Funding Housing, Making Impact 2022’ report tracks the environmental, social and governance (ESG) credentials of housing associations that borrowed through THFC’s bLEND funding vehicle.
These borrowers own and manage nearly 330,000 homes across the UK and delivered 5,440 additional homes in 2021/22.
Brendan Sarsfield, Chair of Sustainability for Housing, said: “We’d like to congratulate The Housing Finance Corporation for publishing its second annual ESG report on behalf of its 29 borrowers in the year.
“A diverse range of SRS adopters is crucial to strengthening the ESG movement within the built environment. As the first funder to require its borrowers to report against the framework THFC continues to demonstrate its commitment to the ESG agenda.”
Piers Williamson, Chief Executive of THFC and bLEND, said: “Our SRS report marks another important step on the road to greater transparency, accountability and ultimately, sustainability, for our bLEND borrowers. Hats off to all of these housing associations, who despite the very many pressures bearing down on them, recognize the value of ESG reporting.”
