Launch of ' Best Green Companies' Awards

26/11/07

On Sunday 25th November The Sunday Times launched its inaugural Best Green Companies Awards in association with leading global environmental consultants Bureau Veritas and Munro Global, the data analysts.  The project has been designed to encourage, acknowledge and publicise businesses that are striving to improve their environmental credentials.

 

Following on from The Sunday Times’ pioneering Best Companies To Work For, it is anticipated that the Best Green Companies Awards will prove to be an equally effective management tool to assess and measure environmental performance.

 

The Awards have been launched to establish a new national benchmark which will become recognised by employees, stakeholders and the general public.  A key differentiator with other ‘green’ awards is a section designed for employee contribution on how environmental management strategies are embedded, implemented and understood throughout the organisation.

 

Drawing on its global environmental expertise, Bureau Veritas has co-created the methodology and designed measures of performance that are suited to a wide range of organisations with regard to size, activity and environmental impact.  Key performance indicators cover standard core areas including energy use and recycling and entrants also have the opportunity to declare environmental objectives and efforts to increase awareness of green issues in the workplace. 

 

Ken Smith, Director of Environmental Management at Bureau Veritas, explains:

 

“The ‘Best Green Companies’ Awards will recognise and publicly reward organisations of all sizes that are focused on improving their environmental performance.  The methodology and measurement criteria we have designed provides clarity and transparency and creates a new environmental management standard for all organisations to aspire to in order to meet stakeholder expectations.”  

 

Richard Caseby, Managing Editor of The Sunday Times, adds:

 

 “There is no greater challenge facing UK companies today. People are being bombarded with green messages from organisations that are under pressure to declare their environmental record.  The ‘Best Green Companies’ Awards will satisfy the growing desire for an independent mark of approval to identify those companies that are truly committed to improving their environmental performance.

 

We believe that if organisations have taken key steps to address their impact on the environment then they should be recognised and celebrated. The Sunday Times passionately supports good employer practice and our Green List seeks to build on this.”
