Westminster reception recognises environmental success – 02/02/12

Green Apple Award

Managers from Henry Boot Construction attended a reception at the House of Commons to celebrate our success at the Green Apple Awards last week.

HBC received a Bronze certificate last June for the Shirecliffe New Homes project, which was recognised at the reception hosted by Sheffield Brightside and Hillsborough MP David Blunkett.

Mr Blunkett praised our success and said he was particularly pleased to see Sheffield companies rewarded for their environmental performance.

The awards are part of a campaign to find Britain’s greenest companies and winners secure a place in The Green Book, a leading international work of reference for best practice in green construction.

“The reception was a chance to celebrate our current environmental performance and discuss ways of further reducing carbon through the construction process with a number of key players from the industry, as well as politicians and business leaders.”
