been named Environmental Business of the Year in the Yorkshire Post Environment
The award was presented by Natalie Bennett, leader of the Green Party at an event which celebrated the achievements of organisations working to combat global warming and create truly sustainable communities. This follows the Group’s success in a number of national awards for recycling and zero waste.
Portakabin Group was honoured for its environmental commitments which cover every aspect of its business – from its achievement of generating zero waste to landfill in the manufacture of its market-leading modular buildings to its sustainable transport initiatives which encourage cycling, car sharing and the use of public transport to reduce carbon emissions. Commenting on the award, Derek Carter, Chief Executive of the Portakabin Group said, “We are committed to achieving excellence in environmental management across all our manufacturing and commercial activities so this award is fantastic recognition for our colleagues. We are continually looking at new ways of minimising impact on the environment and would strongly urge all businesses to do the same. It simply makes sound environmental and economic sense to reduce consumption of the earth’s natural resources.”
“This award also gives our customers, colleagues and suppliers even greater confidence in the sustainability of our approach and our building solutions.”
