Fresh Direct Wins the Greener Path Award
Date: 24-05-2018 published by Nick Baines
We love the environment! After all, without a thriving countryside, clean air and nutritious soil, our crops wouldn’t taste quite right. We’ve worked hard to get super fresh produce and dairy to your kitchen every day and do it the right way. What does that mean? Well, for us it means doing business in a way that’s safe and responsible, respectful to people and minimises our effect on the environment.
Well the great news is… It’s paid off! The pioneering environmental waste management company, ACM Environmental PLC, have announced that Fresh Direct is a winner of a Greener Path Award for consistently achieving zero % to landfill in 2017 for all of our English depots; Bicester, Dagenham, Cambridge and Wigan.
The Greener Path Awards was created to celebrate the great work businesses across the UK are doing in reducing the impact they have on the environment. Organisations who demonstrate exemplary effort and achievement in minimizing waste, boosting recycling and increasing landfill diversion while seeking out innovative and sustainable ways to handle waste streams, are potential candidates. And we did it!
By working in partnership with ACM Environmental, we have fully optimised the diversion of waste from landfill in 2017.
Andy Jacobs, Chief Executive of ACM Environmental said “We are delighted that Fresh Direct is a recipient of the Zero Waste to Landfill Award. We have worked in partnership with them to help implement an environmentally-sound waste management strategy and to see them achieve such impressive landfill diversion results is extremely gratifying.”
