Blackbourne M&E has achieved a gold standard award in the 2017 Business in the Community Environmental Benchmarking Survey for Northern Ireland. This year marks the third consecutive year that Blackbourne has been awarded the gold standard for continued commitment to reducing its environmental impact.

The Survey ran by BITC, recognises and rewards organisations that go above and beyond their legal requirements to minimise their environmental impacts and better manage their resources. It provides an excellent opportunity for organisations to identify further opportunities for improved efficiencies and allows them to measure their environmental efforts against others within their industry.

Aran Blackbourne, Company Director commented: “We have really embraced environmental innovation over the last number of years and it has paid off in more ways than one. Last year we installed a solar panel system to produce our own clean energy and are now looking at other methods of reducing our waste as we aim for Platinum in 2018.”
