Linden Foods have been presented with a plaque in recognition of the high environmental standards achieved with regards to environmental management and performance.
This was the 14th Northern Ireland Environmental Benchmarking Survey, supported by the Department of the Environment and the Northern Ireland Enviornment Agency.
This recognition comes from scoring over 80% in the survey, finishing 37th overall, and first of the Red Meat companies.
The survey takes place annually, and is comprised of the top 250 organisations in Northern Ireland. Linden has improved its score each year, achieving over 80% for the first time in 2012.
This is a culmination of the efforts of all staff, across all departments – the survey considers, Energy Usage, Water and Waste, as well as Management systems and Travel. The Survey provides a benchmark with which to measure improvements relative to those in our sector and in others. We were able to demonstrate year on year improvements, and that we have gone further and faster than the majority of businesses in NI.
Attendees heard from the Environment Minister Alex Atwood, who re-iterated his support of the survey, stating : “I commend all of the participants for their positive contribution to good environmental stewardship and their commitment to reducing environmental impacts and managing resources efficiently”.
Thanks for your help over the past 12 months, and your continued and future assistance!
