B&M Waste Services (B&M) has won a Green Apple Environment Award in the national campaign to find Britain’s greenest companies, councils and communities.
The Green Apple Award for Green Champion was presented to the partnership between B&M, Alstom Transport UK and Haz Environmental.
Since December 2011, B&M Waste Services and Haz Environmental have been working with Alstom Transport to help minimise waste costs, increase recycling rates and improve carbon efficiency at Alstom’s mainland sites.
Competing against more than 500 other nominations, the presentation took place at a glittering ceremony at the House of Commons.
Kevin Wood, Commercial Manager at B&M, said: “We are delighted to have been recognised with such a prestigious Green Apple award. It is a testament to the hard work and co-operation of all three parties and their continual effort to innovate.”
As a result of the success, the three companies have been invited to have their winning paper published in The Green Book, the leading international work of reference on environmental best practice, so that others around the world can follow the example set by the partnership.
Paul Crowley, Contract Manager at Alstom Transport, commented after the awards; “This shows what can be achieved when all involved work together to obtain the same goal.”
B&M’s core ethos is to minimise the waste sent to landfill for all its customers, by maximising recycling rates and the recovery of materials. This commitment is underpinned by B&M’s continued attainment of Carbon Neutral status, which has seen the company offset over five thousand tonnes of carbon dioxide since 2011.
