A special award for achieving zero waste to landfill has been presented to the Nottingham Building Society (The Nottingham) for its environmental work in 2016.
The Zero Waste to Landfill Award is part of the Greener Path Awards. It is presented by environmental waste management company, ACM Environmental PLC.
The awards were created to celebrate the great work businesses across the UK are doing in reducing the impact they have on the environment.
By working closely with ACM Environmental, The Nottingham has been able to minimise waste, increase recycling and ensure none of its waste goes to landfill.
Debbie Hattersley, Facilities Manager at The Nottingham, said:
We are very proud to receive this award. It acknowledges all the hard work that we have put in throughout our 60-strong branch network and at our head office. We have worked closely with AMC to increase our environmental awareness and prove that we truly care about the affect we are having on our environment. Gaining this award is proof that our efforts are having a positive effect.
Andy Jacobs, Chief Executive of ACM Environmental, said:
We are delighted that The Nottingham is a recipient of the Zero Waste to Landfill Award. We have worked in partnership with them to help implement an environmentally-sound waste management strategy and see them achieve such impressive landfill diversion results is extremely gratifying.
