And the award goes to…

The Sunday times Best Green Companies Awards saw the BRE Group achieve first place in the Best Larger Firm with Low Environmental Impact category and 11th place in the Top 60 Best Green Companies award, which recognises organisations with a ground-breaking and innovative approach to improving their environmental performance.Stuart Blofeld, developer of BRE’s sustainability strategy, The S Plan, commented: ‘We’ve been consistently working towards our goal of being carbon neutral by 2015, we are now diverting 90 per cent of our waste from landfill and fully expect this to be zero waste to landfill by the end of the year (ahead of target). We’ve introduced a range of sustainable transport options for staff, including our new staff bike pool, and we have a terrific community schools programme in place. It’s great to be recognised in this way, and I feel tremendously proud of my company’.The awards ceremony is now in its fourth year and merges both a measure of actual corporate environmental performance, with a survey of company employees to find out if the company standards and procedures are carried out right through the company.Martin Wyatt, BRE chairman, added: ‘This is a terrific result for BRE. In this category we compete against some global big hitters with large resources at their disposal. Our success is attributable to our creative approach to sustainability coupled with the firm commitment of staff. We are delighted with this result.’
