Willmott Dixon was crowned Sustainable Business of the Year at the Edie Sustainability Leaders’ Awards, with Judges praised the company’s ‘exceptional progress’ on carbon reduction and scale of ambition on sustainability. We’re already the only carbon neutral construction company and also invest over £2 million a year in communities.
Other companies vying for the title included Coca-Cola, O2, Capgemini and BASF, with judges saying: “What Willmott Dixon has achieved in such a short space of time, relative to the scale and size of the business, is truly remarkable. Everybody plays a part in the firm’s sustainability strategy, which saw it smash 2014 carbon reduction targets and invest £2.3m in local communities. Willmott Dixon’s scale of ambition, achievements, and ethos make it a prime example of a sustainability leader.”
Rob Lambe, managing director at Re-Thinking, added, “We were delighted to pick up this award on behalf of the Group, particularly in the face of such strong competition. The award recognises everyone across the business who has worked so hard to make our business more sustainable, and to leave a positive legacy in local communities.”
