Heron Bros has achieved the top score of ‘Platinum’ in The NI Environmental Benchmarking Survey 2018.

By taking part in the NI Environmental Benchmarking Survey each year, Heron Bros publicly pledges to continue to improve their environmental performance.

As 2018’s NI Responsible Company of the Year, Heron Bros is proud to lead the way by positively impacting its people, the planet and the places where it operates while encouraging others to do likewise. This year, the main contractor also successfully helped grow the Survey by bringing another organisation on board. Partnering with Michael Nugent Ltd, their M&E Supply Chain Partner, is an important means of spreading the impact of the Survey. It is a great way for Heron Bros to extend their positive environmental impacts beyond their immediate operations.

Heron Bros is a value-led, responsible business which is committed to delivering sustainable construction practices which make a positive contribution to a more sustainable future. The company is also involved in the Business and Biodiversity Charter.

Martin O’Kane, Deputy Group Managing Director at Heron Bros commented on the accolade:

“Heron Bros is proud to have achieved Platinum status in this year’s NI Environmental Benchmarking Survey. We view the survey as an instrument for driving and championing our responsible environmental management activities. As 2018’s NI Responsible Company of the Year, we recognise the need to continually minimise our environmental impact while improving our resource management.”

“Achieving the top award in this year’s survey demonstrates our dedication to protecting the natural environment across all our operations and continual investment in improving our construction processes. Operating a commercial business, carrying out environmental practices and improving resource efficiency are embedded within our corporate strategy and operational delivery.”
