We are proud to announce that our work alongside Canary Wharf has been named a Winner for Best Stakeholder Engagement in the annual Footprint Awards. Now in it’s eighth year, The Footprint Awards was presented at the Royal Institute of British Architects, a stand out event celebrating the evolution of sustainability in the industry.
Shortlisted in our category were Mcdonald’s UK, Bidfood and Bartlett Mitchell. Other winners on the night include: WRAP, Innocent and Coca Cola.
The award entry followed the #WakeUpAndSmellTheCoffee campaign that launched the ‘Clean Coffee Zone’ across the entire 128-acre Canary Wharf Estate. Over a week-long roadshow across the retail malls, the initiative needed to instigate excitement in both internal tenants and external public stakeholders, acting as a catalyst for long-term participation and action.
The coffee recycling initiative is now a permanent fixture across the estate and performing very well. The campaign sparked new levels of engagement and interaction with stakeholders, enhancing the delivery of the wider sustainability objectives, targets and overall vision.
Footprint Awards remains the only initiative to honour the achievements of companies in the area of sustainability and responsible business practice in the out of home sector and its supply chain. These awards are open to organisations at every stage in the food supply chain from growers, producers, manufacturers and distributors, through to all hospitality and foodservice operators in both public and private sectors, their suppliers and other stakeholders such as NGOs and specialist support services.
Organised by Footprint, and judged by senior industry specialists, the Footprint Awards have become synonymous with best practice and dedication to sustainability. Now into its 8th year, the Awards have seen yet another record number of entries evidencing the increased importance placed on sustainability within the corporate policy mix.
