Green World Ambassadors

The Green Apple Awards

A joint venture between Carillion and Morgan Sindall has been honoured as an International Green World Ambassador at a special ceremony on Monday August 8, 2016 at The Crystal, London Docklands – regarded as the most sustainable events venue in the UK.

This recognition comes as a result of the environmental success of the joint venture’s A1 Leeming to Barton Improvement Scheme Project which won a Green Apple Environment Award, presented at Westminster Palace in November last year.

As a result of that success, they are having their winning paper published in The Green Book, the world’s only annual work of reference on environmental best practice that is distributed to environment professionals, universities and libraries around the world by The Green Organisation.

The award judges commented: “This £380 million scheme to improve road links in the north east takes place in some quite sensitive habitats, including waterways and woodlands. From the outset the partners established methods to minimise this impact, including relocating trees to a nature reserve, avoiding major works during otter and badger breeding times, and even rerouting the Brough Beck .”

The winning paper now goes forward for further judging and entry into The Green World Awards for the Environment; the campaign to find the “greenest” organisation in the world.

This presentation takes place in Seoul, South Korea in October.
