Portakabin Group, the parent company of Portakabin Site Accommodation, was recently awarded a prestigious Gold Award – only the 5th time this accolade has been presented since the awards began.
The awards, organised by letsrecycle.com, recognise excellence in waste prevention and re-use, recycling and energy recovery and are open to all organisations in both the public and private sectors.
Commenting on this latest success, Derek Carter, Chief Executive of the Portakabin Group, said, “We are absolutely delighted to receive this award which is a fantastic testament to our staff across the business and at every level – from facilities management to design, building engineering and manufacturing.”
“We have seen very significant reductions in waste over the past three years as a result of our strong commitment to re-using and recycling materials and by engineering waste-generating operations out of the manufacturing process. To achieve national recognition for this work and our achievements to date gives our customers, staff and suppliers even greater confidence in the sustainability of our approach and our accommodation solutions.”
Steve Eminton, editor of letsrecycle.com, said, “These awards could not be more current in the face of forthcoming legislative changes. We believe that they will contribute to continual improvement and will help to build a community of like-minded, innovative organisations who can come together to network and share best practice in minimising impact on the environment.”
