Renewables guide wins Interserve top sustainability award

25 February 2009

Interserve won the Sustainability in Real Estate Award at last week's CoreNet Global UK Awards for its approach to integrating sustainability within its business, and for its Renewables guide for sustainable practice across its operations.

The award commends Interserve’s approach to integrating sustainability within the business including their work with the Environment Agency, engagement with wider stakeholders and development of RENEWABLES, a practical guide to promoting sustainable practices in every area of Interserve’s work.

CoreNet Global's annual Sustainability Award commends a project or initiative which has demonstrated a sustainable principle that provides an inspiring example to others in the industry.

Elaine Preston, Sustainability Manager at Interserve, said: “We are thrilled to have won the Sustainability Award for our RENEWABLES guide. We have worked very hard for the last few years to develop a comprehensive and robust framework to improve sustainability and are delighted that our efforts have been recognised by the industry.”

Commenting on the win, Interservefm's Sustainability Director, Wayne Tantrum siad, “I am extremely proud that we should win this award for Interserve and this shows the commitment that our people are putting into solutions to benefit our clients and at the same time help save the world in the area of sustainability."

The judges commented on the fact that the guide effected change through the sharing of experience and best practice, and successfully engaged with wider stakeholders. “Preston developed a sustainable development strategy that addresses key social, environmental and economic considerations. Her commitment to and vision for the project has permeated through to key stakeholders, clients, suppliers and the wider community.”

Since the launch of Interserve’s RENEWABLES guide in June 2008, it has been highly commended by the Environment Agency and has contributed to Interserve’s top 20 ranking in the Observer’s Good Company Guide. Interserve also won the Sustainability Award at the British Institute of Facilities Management Awards 2008, as part of its joint venture, PriDE, with Southern Electric Contracting (SEC).
