Orchard travelled to London yesterday for a prestigious ceremony at the Houses of Parliament where we were presented with a Green Apple Award for environmental excellence.
The Green Apple awards have been going for 20 years and are widely recognised as a badge of excellence in environmental management.
The award was given in recognition of our team’s outstanding work with engineering firm Triten in Barnsley where our unique waste mapping process introduced a comprehensive programme of recycling.
Triten was sending 290 tonnes of waste a year to landfill and had no recycling in place before Orchard became involved. The company now recycles over 90% of its waste and has reduced its annual waste costs significantly as a result.
It is particularly significant that this award was given in recognition of work carried out on behalf of one of our clients and is a huge achievement for the whole team.
