Energy Efficiency Standard for Social Housing in Scotland Indicators (EESSH 2)

Below are the indicators we will use to monitor social landlords' performance against the EESSH. Landlords will use these indicators to make their return due on 31 May 2022. We will publish supporting technical guidance for landlords in the Summer.
