Larkfleet sponsors environmental category at Peterborough Business Awards
The Larkfleet Group of Companies was the proud sponsor of the ‘Environmental Achievement’ award at the recent Peterborough Business Awards.
Environmental achievement and sustainability is very important to the Larkfleet. Companies within the group continually demonstrate their commitment though innovations including the recently announced elevating house and the Larkfleet Homes’ ‘grid neutral’ house.
There were three finalists in the environmental achievements category of the awards, organised by the Peterborough Telegraph. They were Green Energy Switch, Hunt & Coombes and IIE.
The award was won by Hunt & Coombes, one of the region’s leading law firms. It operates in diverse fields of the law including property, commercial, employment, personal injury, crime and mental health.
A Hunt & Coombes spokesperson said: “Winning the Peterborough Business Award was the culmination of many years commitment to environmental issues by the partners and staff. Over the past decade the firm has focused on continuously improving its environmental performance in relation to its services and operations.”
Hunt & Coombes was the first law firm to be awarded the Investors in Environment Green Award, which it still holds. It is also three-times winner of the Great Green Star Award at the IIE Awards.
Daily monitoring of utilities means that Hunt & Coombes has made huge savings on its usage of gas, electricity and water. The firm has also reduced its waste to landfill and increased its recycling significantly. It also completed a Zero Waste Week Challenge in its Peterborough office. Almost 100 per cent of its waste was recycled; just 1.05 per cent was sent to landfill.
Just like the Larkfleet team, Hunt & Coombs has always had a strong philosophy of supporting and serving the local community. Forging strong links with local schools and charities is at the heart of that.
