We had some great news yesterday evening when Investors in the Environment contacted us say that Globe has been awarded their top GREEN level award following an official auditing process which took place at the end of the summer.
Globe has always tried to operate in as sustainable way as possible so we decided that it was about time that we got our efforts properly assessed and accredited. In January we therefore decided to step up to the mark and sign up to the Investors in the Environment scheme, going straight for the highest level Green Award, aiming to skip both the Bronze and Silver levels.
Throughout this year we have been documenting our past and recent efforts to improve our environmental impact. That mix of strong historic evidence along with a well planned forward strategy took us through the Investors In The Environment audit process with no non-conformances and an unqualified audit.
Investors in the Environment ended their audit report saying – “This has been a strong showing for Globe Consultants Ltd who have shown that they already have environmental impact minimisation as a core value which is deeply embedded into the organisation. We look forward to working with them in the future.”
A big thank you and well done to the team for their efforts, and in particular to our Business Manager Lizzy, who pulled my research and proposals together into a format that suited the audit process, as well as to Vikram and his colleagues at IiE for their advice and encouragement.
We are now looking forward to the awards ceremony which is being held at the Kingsgate Conference Centre, Peterborough on the 27th November. www.iie.uk.com
