Green Apple double award for Cawarden
Demolition specialist receives gold and silver recognition for environmental best practice
DERBY-based Cawarden have won two Green Apple Awards for environmental best practice at this year’s awards ceremony, which was held at the Royal Horseguards Hotel, in London, last month.
The company received gold and silver recognition for its remediation and conservation work (on behalf of Bolsover Properties) at the former Summit Colliery site in Nottinghamshire. This meant the site could be redeveloped for commercial/industrial use whilst providing a long-term sustainable solution to protect plants and wildlife habitat that has flourished at the former colliery.
William Crooks, managing director of Cawarden, commented: ‘We are delighted to have won gold and silver in the International Green Apple Environment Awards. These prestigious award wins have shone a light on our unwavering commitment and passion for the environment as well as the partnership approach we take to supporting our clients to achieve their sustainable development goals.’
Darren Rideout, head of land regeneration and planning at Bolsover Properties, added: ‘Congratulations to Cawarden on winning gold and silver at the Green Apple Awards. I am incredibly proud that Summit Colliery has received this international award recognition.’
The Green Apple Awards was launched in 1994 by The Green Organisation and are supported by the Environment Agency, the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health, the Chartered Institution for Wastes Management, and other independent bodies.
