  • Encore secures five star Green Achiever rating

Encore has recently secured a five star accreditation under the Green Achiever scheme which provides UK businesses with a way of measuring and reducing their environmental impact.

The Green Achiever Declaration of Environmental Commitment is composed by environmental experts and is designed to help businesses focus on what they are doing now and their aims to improve their green credentials in the future. 

Encore first secured accreditation in 2014 with a four star rating, but improvements right across the business – both within Encore offices and at the many sites the company manages – have clearly paid off. Some of our key initiatives include:

  • Printing double-sided, using e-invoices where possible and increasing the use of email for correspondence
  • Monitoring fuel consumption in company vehicles, implementing a Bike2Work scheme for employees and regularly servicing our fleet
  • Implementing extensive recycling for a wide range of waste – both at our offices and the residential developments we manage
  • Reducing energy consumption by using energy efficient bulbs, turning electrical equipment off when not in use and using sensors to control lighting
  • Regularly donating to and supporting local charities, and encouraging our staff to do the same

Director Neil Robinson commented: "We have worked hard to further reduce the environmental impact of our business and are delighted to see we have improved on the four star accreditation granted to us in 2014.”
