We have been working very hard on behalf of our customers to showcase the innovative and sustainable work we all do.
We’re extremely proud of the awards that we have been given, especially those we have won on behalf of our clients. These awards and accolades are proof that our tireless work in the name of sustainability is being recognised by big hitters in our industry – motivating us to work even harder and bring out the best in our customers.
Green Apple Awards
Environmental Best Practice
The Green Apple awards recognise the best efforts made by organisations to improve their environmental efforts in a way that promotes sustainability and best practice. Our most bountiful award, we have yet to lose a single nomination in the three years we have participated.
In fact, 2016 proved to be our most successful year: we took home eight awards on behalf of ourselves and our clients, culminating in Bywaters being crowned ‘Champion of Champions’ for receiving the highest environmental score, overall.
Best Resources Project by Facilities Management
These long-standing awards are given for outstanding work in sustainability and resource management. Judged by peers and experts in the sector, these premier awards represent the highest level of achievement in our industry.
This year we were shortlisted on behalf of our partnership with Guy’s & St. Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust, who have been doing wonderful work in bringing up recycling rates and finding unique ways to redistribute surplus equipment and help medical institutions in disadvantaged countries.
National Air Quality Awards
Air Quality Champion
With air quality becoming an ever increasing focus for London it’s important that businesses operate more responsibly to curb air pollution and reduce carbon emissions in support of the Mayor’s plans to tackle this big issue.
We are delighted to say that our own John S Glover was shortlisted for the ‘Air Quality Champion 2016’ award in recognition of the tremendous efforts he has made to transform Bywaters – improving sustainability and reducing air pollution in the capital. We’re extremely honoured, as this is the first time a waste management company has ever been nominated for this award!
