CCT Venues is officially one of the most environmentally responsible businesses in London, according to the 2012 Clean City Awards.
Organised by the City of London Corporation, this awards scheme encourages good practice in waste management across the Square Mile.
One of the top-performing sites in its category, CCT Venues secured a prestigious Platinum Award. Presented by the Lord Mayor of the City of London during a ceremony at the Mansion House, the new award recognises CCT Venues strongly improving track-record. The company won a Gold Award in 2009 and a Merit Award in 2008.
Chosen from over 1650 sites across the City of London that range from small shops to large multinational companies, the winners represent best practice in waste minimisation, reuse and recycling initiatives. Awards are based on site visits by inspectors and documentary evidence submitted by entrants. In addition, the in-depth Platinum Award Application Form probes issues such as staff communications and the reduction of smoking-related litter.
The Platinum Award reflects the hard work of CCT Venues' staff in minimising the environmental impact of the company's three training venues, two of which are located in the City. Responsible waste management is just one strand in the company's broad ranging environmental policy.
Facilities Manager, Marika Dekker says: "Everyone at CCT Venues should be very proud. This is a BIG step up from last year's Gold Award and two steps up from our Merit Award in 2008. Next year, we're aiming for the ultimate prize - the Chairman's Cup!"
Launched in 1994, the Clean City Awards Scheme aims to recognise and reward good practice in waste management. There are three levels of awards (Merit, Gold & Platinum) across three categories of sites (Small, Medium and Large). The Chairman's Cup is awarded to overall winners following presentation and questions from the panel.
