Hastoe wins Green Apple Award two years in a row

14/11/2013
Hastoe has won a prestigious Green Apple Environment Award for the second year in a row – for its Ditchingham scheme in Norfolk. The scheme has been awarded Bronze.

DitchinghamThe Green Apple Environment Awards find Britain’s greenest companies, councils and communities. Hastoe competed against more than 500 other nominations and was presented with their Green Apple Award at a presentation ceremony in the House of Commons on 11 November 2013.

As a result of this success Hastoe has been invited to have their winning paper published in The Green Book, the leading international work of reference on environmental best practice, so that others around the world can follow their example and learn from their experience.

Hastoe will also be considered to represent their country in the European Business Awards for the Environment.

The Green Apple Awards began in 1994 and have become established as the country’s major recognition for environmental endeavour among companies, councils, communities and countries. 

The awards are organised by The Green Organisation, an independent, non-political, non-activist, non-profit environment group dedicated to recognising and promoting environmental best practice.

Judges for the Green Apple Awards are drawn from the Environment Agency, the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health, the Chartered Institution for Wastes Management and other independent bodies.

Kevin Hartnett, Business Development Director at Hastoe, said:

“To win a Green Apple Award is a great achievement but to win two years running is outstanding. Winning an award like this is testament to the hard work and creative thinking that has gone into developing and building the homes at Ditchingham, which are a real benefit to the local community. We are particularly thrilled that this award win recognises our innovative approach to sustainable development as Hastoe is passionate about developing sustainable homes in sustainable communities.”
