M J Mapp announce Green Awards success

Congratulations to M J Mapp have been recognised again this year for their efforts in environmental best practice.  Two of their managed sites, The Cornerhouse in Nottingham and Stockley Park in Uxbridge, have won a ‘Green Apple’ award in recognition of the team’s work in embedding sustainable practices.

 

Delivering a sustainable property management function is a core activity at M J Mapp as it continues to grow and evolve. Working in partnership with M J Mapp a unique approach to recycling solutions is being applied by SWRnewstar; waste produced at over 100 individual properties is reviewed and analysed, then strategies are put in place to encourage behaviour which leads to excellent results.

 

A company-wide education programme, promoting a change in mindset, has increased recycling rates, reduced vehicle movements and improved the environmental performance across the entire managed portfolio.  Crucially, the engagement programme is also delivering sustainable, long term savings and reducing waste volumes.

 

Carl Brooks, Head of Sustainability says; “Our property teams are constantly striving to identify initiatives that improve the environmental performance at their sites and it’s great that we are receiving external recognition which demonstrates our commitment.”

 

Nigel Mapp commenting on the achievements said: ‘This really is great news for M J Mapp and underscores our green values and the efforts made by the team to continually demonstrate that we are meeting the highest environmental standards.’
