We are delighted to confirm that our project, Ponteland Schools & Leisure Development has been shortlisted for an award at this years International CSR Excellence Awards.
Whilst we originally submitted a Green Apple Award, they also run the International CSR Excellence Awards and suggested we submit the project for this and we have been successful.
Some project achievements for this were:
Eliminate single use plastic cups on site by purchasing 550ml aluminium bottles for everyone
Eliminate floor standing water coolers, sanitation kits and mineral bottles
Installation of a water filtration system
Employed a local family-owned business to run the on site canteen. This reduced the carbon footprint by 25% as people didn’t travel to the shops on their breaks.
The awards are organised via The Green Organisation for companies that have a heart . “Responsible, caring companies are in a privileged position to be able to help those who depend on them for their livelihoods, and others less fortunate. They can be a realistic force for good. We want to recognise and reward their efforts in this direction.”
The awards will be held in November where we will hopefully find out we are a winner.
