We excel at ‘Green’ Awards

Posted on 01 November 2013

We are delighted to announce that we have excelled again at Northern Irelands ‘green’ survey. We achieved Quintile One status in the Business in the Community’s ARENA Environmental Benchmarking Survey.

The ARENA Survey is Northern Ireland’s only benchmark for environmental management, performance and reporting. This year almost 300 organisations from 15 different sectors were invited to take part, including the top 200 companies and leading public sector organisations.

Now in its 15th year, the Survey is a key driver for corporate environmental improvement and is seen as a positive influencer to help organisations achieve a more sustainable way of doing business.

Benchmarking enables organisations to compare their performance and learn from what others are doing. As this period of economic uncertainty continues, organisations can look to making environmental efficiencies as a way to improve the environment, contribute to a sustainable future and make tangible cost savings.

The ARENA Network Chair, David Gavaghan commented: “The Survey is a key driver to ensure environmental issues are on the agenda of organisations across Northern Ireland and beyond. Year-on-year, the results give us tangible evidence that environmental measurement is amongst the top issues that corporates are managing.”
