Winning the double

We have been recognised for our environmental performance at two separate award events over the last two months.

In November, we beat stiff competition at the annual Thames Valley Business Magazine awards, to be recognised in the Green Progress Awards category.  And in early December our Environment team received the Best Sustainability project runner-up prize at the MoD Sanctuary awards. The Sanctuary magazine is the MoD's premier annual publication detailing the diverse environmental activities carried across the Defence estate.

Both awards reflect the significant construction and waste management work we have been involved in. We diverted 99% of our waste from landfill, and received an unparalleled fourth consecutive Considerate Constructors Scheme Gold award. These are just a couple of the achievements that our Environment projects teams have supported, and that were recognised by the judging panels as demonstrating excellent environmental practice.

Peter Caddock, Head of Environment said,

"These awards are a well-deserved recognition for the high level of environmental performance delivered by our projects teams. Looking to the year ahead, our ambition is to deliver environmental best practice across the company through innovative sustainable solutions linked to the new corporate strategy."
