C&R wins “Best in Carbon Management” at Carbon Trust awards
Capital & Regional is pleased to announce that it has been awarded “Best in Carbon Management” at the Carbon Trust Standard Bearer Awards. The Carbon Trust’s annual awards ceremony which took place today recognises the top performers amongst all the organisations certified by the Carbon Trust over the previous 12 months.
Capital & Regional achieved the highest overall carbon management score in a qualitative assessment, with the highest absolute reduction of emissions amongst those with equal carbon management scores. Previous winners of the best in the carbon management include Kuehne+Nagel, Coca-Cola Enterprises and Aldi.
Now in its fifth year, the awards are given to recognise outstanding achievements in reducing environmental impacts across each of the certifications most commonly awarded by the Carbon Trust. In order to achieve recertification under the Standard, organisations must demonstrate every two years ever greater improvements in reducing their environmental impact.
Stuart Laidlaw, National Technical Facilities Manager at Capital & Regional, said: “This is a great achievement and we have worked really hard on improving our sustainability credentials year on year. Carbon management is increasingly important to retailers, as it makes shopping centres more cost-effective to occupy, and to shoppers, who are far more environmentally aware. We are pleased that the Carbon Trust has recognised our carbon management programmes which are helping us achieve our economic and environmental goals.”
The Carbon Trust is an independent, expert partner of leading organisations around the world, helping them contribute to and benefit from a more sustainable future through carbon reduction, resource efficiency strategies and commercialising low carbon technologies.
