Award Handbooks



The first European Responsible Housing Awards were launched in 2014. 70 applications were received, from 42 housing organisations across 12 European countries. A great success, as an evidence of flourishing actions and projects driven by CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) principles in this sector. The selection was difficult: submitted projects were of high quality and extremely diverse. You will find in this Handbook 25 “good practices” shortlisted by the Awards’ Jury.


Meet the 20 finalists of the second edition of the European Responsible Housing Awards! From transforming a disadvantaged district into a sustainable one to tackling energy precariousness and from working closely with tenants to using vocational training to integrate refugees... Public, cooperative and social housing providers across Europe generate various innovative response to the housing challenges of our time.


This third edition of the Responsible Housing Awards saw a record-breaking number of 87 submissions (an increase of 29% compared to 2016) across five categories from 16 countries. The jury members had a tough decision at hand but in the end everyone is a winner in the responsible housing community. In this Handbook you may find out more about all 25 projects of the winners and the finalists.
