Lagan Construction Group has achieved Platinum status – the highest scoring level – in this year’s Northern Ireland Environmental Benchmarking Survey.
The Survey, which is run by Business in the Community, sponsored by Moy Park and supported by the Department for Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs and the Northern Ireland Environment Agency, recognises and rewards those organisations that are going above and beyond their legal requirements to minimise their environmental impacts and better manage their resources.
Ninety organisations took part in the Survey, achieving an average score of 77%. The Survey also welcomed an impressive 18 ‘newcomers’ (participants that did not take part in the previous year’s Survey), the majority of which were introduced to the Survey by another participant.
“It’s encouraging to see so many organisations demonstrating their commitment to improving environmental performance. The Survey is a powerful driver of this, and the Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs is delighted to support this initiative. The results clearly show that consistency is key, with repeat participants achieving year-on-year improvements in their scores. I’d like to congratulate all of this year’s participants. By taking part in this survey, you are publicly committing to improving environmental performance within your own organisation, and helping the wider business community to identify further opportunities for improved efficiencies.”David Small, Chief Executive, Northern Ireland Environment Agency
