What our members say about Green500


Paul Brackley, General Manager, Crowne Plaza London – The City

"The City were delighted to join the Green500 to represent IHG Group as a market leading business in the hospitality sector. We are fully committed and aligned with the Green500 strategy and are always looking for new innovative ways to reduce, reuse and recycle as part of our ongoing environmental journey".

 

Alexander Nicoll, Director of Corporate Responsibility, Liberty International PLC

"The widely held acceptance of the damaging effect of climate change calls for urgent action by businesses and individuals to reduce carbon emissions. Energy, waste and transport are all ingredients of this growing problem. Liberty International works closely with the Carbon Trust and others to drive forward positive outcomes both in terms of our own impact, as a FTSE 100 company, on the environment and, through our ownership of retail and other property assets, to influence those who supply our business, occupy space in our buildings and the wider public who are our ultimate customers. We are pleased to be part of the Green500"

 

Carmel Mcquaid, Climate Change Manager, Marks and Spencer

Being a member of the Green500 initiative complements M&S' existing Plan A commitment to become a carbon neutral business by 2012.  For us, a key strength of Green500 will be building critical mass in carbon management across many different sectors and we hope that this will help to accelerate the availability of low carbon technologies at accessible prices."

 

Neil Griffiths, Director of Health Safety & Environmental, TNT Express Services UK & Ireland

"As a large global transport organisation TNT recognises that the transport industry generates nearly one fifth of the worlds CO2 emissions.  As we have a substantial carbon footprint TNT has introduced a unique and ambitious Environmental Programme - "Planet me", with the intention of reducing the level of CO2 emissions generated by our activitie,s not just in the UK, but worldwide. In the UK, we are already working closely with the Carbon Trust to develop our carbon management programme and the London Green 500 will complement the work already undertaken for our depots in the London region"

 

Simon Montague, Director of Communications, Eurostar

"Eurostar believes business has a duty to reduce its environmental impact, thus enabling consumers to change behaviours and choose less environmentally damaging products and services. We hope Green500 will succeed in both advising and publicly recognising businesses that are aiming to cut CO2 emissions, and will ultimately help London become a model for how cities can adapt their economies and infrastructure to tackle the climate change threat that faces us all."

 

Lisa Miall, Environmental and Sustainability Manager, Natural History Museum

What is absolutely unique about Green500 is that its focus goes beyond just energy consumption and looks at other aspects of efficiency such as waste management and transport. The initiative will provide the Museum with the opportunity and impetus to put in place a definitive programme through which we can make substantial changes and become a model of sustainability, particularly among the arts and culture sector.”

 

Allison Murray, Corporate Responsibility Manager, T-Mobile UK

We are delighted to be the first mobile network to join Green500 and be part of such an important initiative that aims to help organisations cut carbon emissions that can have an adverse effect on the environment and improve energy-efficiency.   We see this as an opportunity to be a model of excellent sustainable practice.”
