Anglian wins top eco award

Anglian Water has been named as the overall winner in ACCA’s eighth annual UK Environmental Reporting Awards.

The company picked up the prize for the breadth of detail it provided on environmental expenditure and financial data, the use of benchmarking and the inclusion of clear and detailed objectives.

The second award went to Eastern Group, for its eco-efficiency approach and its quantitative emissions data, while best first-time reporting award was given to Vauxhall Motors. Vauxhall devoted an extensive section of its report to product stewardship.

A commendation for social reporting was given to Co-Operative Bank for a ‘triple bottom-line approach’ that took account of environmental, economic and social issues.

A second commendation went to the British Airports Authority for its site reporting, including a section on the corporate environmental impact.

ACCA technical director Roger Adams said: ‘Each year, companies produce high-quality and purposeful environmental reports, either separately or as part of a wider social reporting package, and this year we have seen the highest standard since the awards started.’

Initiated in 1991, the awards encourage companies to be more open in the way they report their activities and their impact on the environment.
