Last week we were delighted to hear that we have won a prestigious Green Apple Built Environment Award for our work on the Waterside Development, Middleton. We will be presented with our trophy and certificate at a presentation ceremony in the Crystal, London on Monday, August 8.
The Waterside development features 36 zero-carbon, independent-living, retirement bungalows with a variety of picturesque character areas featuring garden and lakeside settings. It has already been awarded the 2015 Bricks Award for Development of the Year and is soon to be featured on the Zero Carbon Hub.
The Green Apple Awards began in 1994 and have become established as the country’s major recognition for environmental endeavor among companies, councils, communities and countries.
The Awards are organised by the green organisation, an independent, non political, non activist, non-profit environment group dedicated to recognising, rewarding and promoting environmental best practice around the world.
The Green Apple Awards are supported by the Environment Agency, the chartered Institute of Environmental Health, the Chartered Institution for Wastes Management and other independent bodies.
If you know a company, council or community that deserves recognition for its environmental efforts, you can nominate them for a Green Apple Award by telephoning 01604 810507.
