Environmental Award success for NHBC

Leading environmental waste management company, ACM Environmental PLC, is delighted announce that NHBC is a winner of the first Greener Path Award for Landfill Diversion.


In association with the British Council for Sustainable Development, the Greener Path Awards were formed to celebrate the great work businesses across the UK are doing in reducing the impact they have on the environment. Businesses who have demonstrated exemplary effort and achievement in minimising waste, boosting recycling and increasing landfill diversion while seeking out innovative and sustainable ways to handle waste streams have been recognised and celebrated. NHBC, the UK's leading standard-setting body and provider of warranty and insurance for new homes is one such business having achieved average landfill diversion of 93.3% in the last 12 months with an incredibly 100% diversion for the last four months.

We have worked in partnership with them to help implement an environmentally-sound waste management strategy and to see them achieve such sustained and impressive landfill diversion results is extremely gratifying."

NHBC operates a balanced corporate responsibility strategy, and minimising our environmental impact is an important aspect. We┬┐ve worked hard over recent years to improve our waste management process and to educate our staff about the importance of recycling."
