Manor Walks Shopping and Leisure has won a Green Apple Environmental Award in the international campaign to find the greenest companies, councils and communities.
The Green Apple awards aim to improve environmental performance, encourage the efficient use of resources and support the wider goals of sustainable development, including social benefits through community and staff involvement.
Northumberland’s premier retail destination has won the award for their Biodiversity project that was completed in partnership with ABM UK. The purpose of the project was to improve the efficient use of natural resources within the shopping centre and conserve the landscape and wildlife in Cramlington.
Michael Harland, Environmental Services Manager for ABM UK, said “We’re extremely proud of the ABM and Manor Walks teams for winning this award. We feel we are responsible for the protection of individual species of plants and animals, the conservation of their habitats and the natural processes that sustain them. We are continually looking at sites around the centre to conserve nature and we have delivered multiple habitats to provide this.”
Nick Lambert, Centre Manager at Manor Walks Shopping Centre, said: “We are delighted to have won a Green Apple Award for Environmental Best Practice. It’s great to see that our conscious effort to reduce our impact on the environment has been recognised.”
The Green Apple Awards are run by The Green Organisation – an independent, non-political, non-activist, non-profit environment group dedicated to recognising, rewarding and promoting environmental best practice around the world.
