Social Housing Barometer 2021 – Benchmark tool for social housing industry leaders

11 April 2022

Board and management’s appetite for risk has increased over the past 12 months according to our 2021 Social Housing Barometer.

Health and Safety is seen as a top five risk by 70% of those surveyed, along with accessing skills and resources being a major concern.

With the ESG agenda a growing issue for boards, greater focus is needed. 49% of those surveyed publicly report on ESG issues, even though only 22% say they have created a formal ESG strategy.
