Environmental award for water management success

16th January 2014

Berendsen UK joined brands such as Sainsbury's, Co-operative Group and Virgin Media as award winners at the 8th annual Sustainability Leaders Awards, gaining further recognition for our water reduction success, part of our wider environmental management programme.  

This year's event, organised by Sustainable Business and edie.net, was the biggest so far with over 400 guests in attendance. The awards were open to both public and private sector companies of all sizes and the competition is one of the few environmental awards schemes accredited by the RSA. 

Since 2007, at Berendsen UK we have reduced our annual water usage by over a billion litres on a like-for-like basis, a reduction of 31.5%. 

Peter Woolstenholmes, Berendsen's Energy Manager, said:"We continue to work with suppliers to develop water and energy saving solutions and to invest in water usage reduction. Through our trade body, the Textile Services Association, we have detailed the process to other organisations using seminars and talks in order to promote industry-wide best practice."

This isn't the first time we have been recognised for our environmental focus, having achieved the Carbon Trust Standard for both reducing water usage and reducing CO2.
