Our Services

Sustainability

The sustainability team offers advisory and consultancy services to organisations to enhance their approach to sustainability and measure their ESG performance through operational transformation.

Our Sustainability team of experts assist organisations in understanding their environmental and social impact, the risks of inaction, opportunities from early action and shaping a pragmatic response.

Our overall aim is to help our clients transition to a more sustainable business model that will withstand the challenges of a changing world.

Our vision is to ensure that sustainability becomes “business-as-usual” across the housing sector while assisting our clients in embracing the adoption of purpose-driven business to unlock new opportunities.

We support our clients in crafting their bespoke approach to retrofit, sustainability in practice, ESG, and net-zero, creating robust plans for implementation for sustained change.

At Altair, we are firm believers in maximising benefits through the adoption of a whole systems approach. We take a holistic stance on environmental and social concerns, addressing issues such as biodiversity, resource scarcity, and air pollution in a concerted effort.

Our services emphasise a proactive approach to achieving sustainability across your organisation to drive excellence in ESG. To support this transition, our consultants will work collaboratively with you and your customers to ensure timely upgrades across your estate and key operations to secure legal compliance, financial sustainability and enhanced customer satisfaction levels.

Our services include:

Climate related risk management

We anticipate the housing sector will embrace the principles of Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD). These principles have now been formally embedded within International Sustainability Standards Board’s (ISSB’s) IFRS Sustainability Disclosure Standards. These are known as IFRS; S1 General Requirements for Disclosure of Sustainability-related Financial Information and IFRS S2 Climate-related Disclosures.

To transition towards a future proofed business, able to withstand the challenges created by climate change, your organisation must understand its climate-related risks, potential damages, and the mitigation and adaptation required. This is becoming increasingly important to insurers and lenders who are seeking more transparency on such issues.

Our sustainability risk management experts offer advisory and consulting services on:

  • Risk identification –physical and transitional risks
  • Materiality assessments & scenario analysis
  • Mitigation & adaption planning
  • Climate risk maturity assessments
  • Climate-related financial disclosures

Creating access to ESG project funding

We are committed to providing comprehensive support to our clients, leveraging our unique ESG Health Check. This exclusive tool enables organisations to gain a comprehensive understanding of their environmental, social, and sustainable governance (ESG) position. Additionally, our ESG Maturity Assessment & Improvement Plan delivers a targeted action plan for clients to enhance their performance in the upcoming financial year.

Our ESG Performance Management ensures continuous improvement by allowing organisations to track, monitor, and visualise their progress throughout the year. Together, we collaboratively set new targets and refresh action plans. This process not only fosters improvement but also establishes access to ESG project funding.

Addressing a critical challenge in the sector, we recognise that relying solely on government grants for net-zero transformations and ESG-related projects is insufficient. Our Sustainability team, in collaboration with Altair’s strategic finance team, is dedicated to helping housing providers secure diverse funding sources for sustainability projects. From initial advice to the actual procurement of finance, we provide 360-degree support.

Our expertise includes:

  • ESG Health Check
  • ESG Maturity Assessment & Improvement Plan
  • ESG Performance Management
  • Sustainable finance options appraisals
  • Debt advisory and requests for proposals
  • Sustainable Financial Reporting

Sustainable Commercial Procurement

As we transition to a net-zero economy, your supply chain must have the flexibility to respond to evolving demands for products, goods, and services.

We recognise the challenge of thoroughly mapping and understanding the environmental and social impact of your tier 1 and tier 2 suppliers. In addition to the intricacies of the supply chain, housing providers also require commitment and support from their supply chain to fulfil the sustainability commitments outlined in their strategies. Collaboration with your suppliers is an integral aspect of your sustainability strategy.

In partnership with Altair’s Commercial Services, our Sustainability team is prepared to assist you in optimising your procurement and supply chain operations. Together, by combining expertise and experience, Altair strives to empower our clients to generate a positive impact on environmental sustainability, pledging to enhance the efficiency, resilience, and long-term sustainability of your procurement and supply chain processes.

Our offerings include:

  • Supply chain impact mapping & remediation
