We are pleased to announce that we have been recognised for our environmental awareness and have been awarded the highest ‘Green Level’ accreditation by Investors in the Environment.
Investors in the Environment (iiE) is a nationwide environmental accreditation scheme and is designed to help businesses improve their energy efficiency and reduce their environmental impact. The Accreditation is supported and endorsed locally by organisations including Peterborough City Council, the Environment Capital Partnership and Peterborough Environment City Trust.
To achieve the accreditation Princebuild has been working tirelessly to save energy, reduce waste and increase recycling. We have also introduced measures such as LED and motion detection lighting and have an extensive recycling drive covering general waste, paper, batteries and food waste, all resulting in a significant 31% reduction in gas use and an even more impressive 38% increase in estimated carbon offsetting.
Vikram Thomas, iiE assessor commented “Overall this was an excellent showing from Princebuild who have been rapidly expanding in the world of Renewables as well as other divisions. They are clearly aware of the community and are actively seeking to engage with them in various ways.”
Sam Cooke, Renewable Energy Manager for Princeenergy said “At Princebuild we are committed to improving the communities we work in and we continually strive to reduce the impact our business activities have on the environment. The Investors in Environment accreditation is great recognition of our environmental awareness and will help us to set the standard for the environment amongst other businesses”
Sam, who is also the Environmental Champion within the business has plans for further improvements, with a staff iiE awareness day and further upgrades to lighting, boilers and water systems. With this in mind it is hoped the company will be able to realise year on year improvements to become even greener!
