Freedom has won a bronze Environment Award in the national campaign to find the greenest individuals, companies, councils and communities.
Competing against more than 800 other entries in Green Apple Awards, Freedom was awarded for Environmental Best Practice with its project ‘Beyond environmental improvements towards sustainability.’
Freedom’s Chief Operating Officer, David Hartley, and Environmental Sustainability Manager, Katerina Robinson, were presented with Freedom’s trophy and certificate at a glittering presentation ceremony hosted by Liz Kendall MP at the Houses of Parliament on 12 November 2018.
The judges commented: “Freedom continues to push their environmental performance to the max. In the last year they have reduced vehicle fuel costs by £16,000, opened a new avenue for plastic recycling, and taken more than 20% from their previous years’ carbon footprint.”
As a result of Freedom’s Green Apple Award success, they have been invited to have their winning paper published in The Green Book, the leasing international work of reference on environmental best practice, so that others around the world can follow the company’s example and learn from their achievement.
