CIWM Sustainability and Resource Awards 2017
We were delighted to win at the CIWM Sustainability and Resource Awards 2017 in the category of ‘Health and Safety Best Practice’. We were acknowledged for our new safely culture and Start Safely campaign. Our vision is to become the safest business not only in the resource and recycling industry but to engage our teams so deeply into a new safety culture that it surpasses best practice benchmarks demonstrated by the construction and oil, gas and petrochemical industries. We identified where the business was placed on the safety culture ladder, then worked with a specialist company to devise a plan. We launched “START Safely” – the first 12 months of professionally devised and facilitated workshops, with each month focussing on a key topic, informed by near miss and RIDDOR statistics.
Jim Ballance Compost Marketing Award 2012
LondonEnergy put forward marketing work for compost produced at its EcoPark in north London. As producers of compost and digestate and located in the capital, the marketing approach had to challenge Londoners’ perceptions of what could be done with organics. We did this with a three-pronged communication campaign promoting the collection of organic waste; endorsing the value of resident’s behavioural change; encouraging the beneficial use of both small and large quantities of compost.
