CIS Excellence Awards sponsor, Compass Group UK & Ireland, has won a Green Apple Award for Environmental Best Practice. Issued by the Green Organisation, an internationally renowned environment group, the award promotes environmental best practice around the world. Compass Group has been rewarded for its revamped approach to ensuring compliance with their certified ISO14001 Environmental Management System and creating a new environment toolkit.

Since launching the innovation in January 2015, Compass has enrolled the activity pack at nearly 9,000 sites. Over 80% of them responded positively to the company’s satisfaction survey.

A lot of preparation and background work went into creating the Environment Toolkit so for it to be recognised in such a way is fantastic. However, our work doesn’t stop here – we will continue to improve the Toolkit every year to keep our sites up to date with the latest information as we seek to deliver best practice across the business.’

Martin Smith CEO of Alcumus, external auditors, added: ‘Compass have shown their commitment to both retaining and continuously improving their environmental performance year on year. We are always pleased to see examples of good practice during our audits and congratulate them on their award.’

Earlier this year, the Environment Toolkit was also shortlisted in the Footprint Awards 2016, highly commended for the Stakeholder Engagement Award. Compass Group UK & Ireland will be presented with the award at The Houses of Parliament, Westminster Palace, London, on 11th November 2016.
