Sustainable Homes has won a coveted Green Apple Environment Award in the national campaign to find Britain’s greenest organisations. We competed against 183 applicants and won Gold. We were presented with our award at a ceremony in the House of Commons on Friday 14 November 2011.
As a result of this success Sustainable Homes will be representing the UK in the European Business Awards for the Environment, later this year. Our work will also be published in a leading international journal on environmental best practice, so that others around the world can learn from our experience.
Sustainable Homes are the leading trainer on sustainable housing issues in the UK including building and retrofitting homes to low carbon. They also manage the Sustainable Homes Index For Tomorrow (SHIFT) a best practise group for housing organisations.
Andrew Eagles Managing Director of Sustainable Homes, stated “This is great recognition of all those companies that have worked with us, from our SHIFT members and partners to Government and the WWF-UK. The Sustainable Homes team are really honoured. It has given us a boost in our work to reduce the environmental impacts of UK organisations”
The ceremony was hosted by The Rt Hon Liz Kendall, MP.
The judges commented, “This is the first environmental index for social housing of its kind. It combines independent assessment with peer learning and community engagement, and was launched in 2008 with housing associations, environment groups and government combining to address the various identified needs.”
Judges for the Green Apple Awards are drawn from the Environment Agency, the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health, the Chartered Institution for Wastes Management and other independent bodies.
