BRE’s leadership in sustainability was recognised at the Construction News award for Sustainable Company of the Year at a celebratory dinner in the Grosvenor Hotel Park Lane, London last week.

The award which was sponsored by technical services provider IMTECH, recognises companies for which sustainability is a top management priority and forms a central part of the corporate agenda and company culture.

BRE launched its sustainability strategy (S Plan) in 2008 to deliver continuous improvement across eight key areas of sustainability:
– CO2
– Resource Efficiency
– Transport
– Community Engagement
– Supply Chain Engagement
– Ecology
– Water

Highlights of the programme to date include a 40% reduction in transport related emissions, diversion of 99.9% of non-hazardous waste from landfill and continued work to identify and save water on the BRE Garston site with one action alone saving over 17,500 m³ of water per year.
