Contract caterer BaxterStorey received a Major Commendation at the 2009 Business Commitment to the Environment (BCE) Leadership Awards in London.

The BCE Awards celebrate businesses that the BCE independent judging panel recognises as meeting the commercial demands without compromising the environment for future generations. The company was also recognised for its tenacious drive in challenging existing environmental performance across its sites, and across its supplier and customer base. This has led to the introduction of a raft of new measures including an increased commitment to using fresh, locally sourced products to help sustain the local supply chain; office recycling; energy efficiency programmes and processes; changes to packaging; and transport emission reductions. The company was also the first in the UK food-service industry to trial energy-from-waste programmes for collected food waste. Commenting on its achievement at the BCE Awards Mike Hanson, head of environment and sustainability at BaxterStorey said: "At BaxterStorey we recognise that our success is dependent upon the environment around us and we do all we can to behave in a responsible fashion. "In recent years we have invested significant thought, time and funds in ensuring our business is best positioned to maximise its role as a responsible corporate citizen and minimise the environmentally detrimental effects of our operation." He added: "Having our efforts recognised as an example of best practice by an internationally recognised thought-leader in this field is a source of much pride and we are delighted to be part of the BCE programme." Applications for 2010 BCE Awards are now being accepted. Any company that feels it deserves peer and public recognition for its outstanding environmental excellence and leadership should download an application form from the BCE Awards website (www.bceawards.org) and send it in before the closing date of 5 October. From its Reading base, BaxterStorey provides staff catering and hospitality services across more than 450 sites throughout the UK and Ireland.
