Prior to its successes at the recent NBG Supplier Awards, Mannok added three awards to its growing collection in recognition of its achievements in business excellence, innovation, sustainability leadership and biodiversity.
At the NBG event, Mannok won in the Brick & Block, and General Build categories. Back in September, the firm was named one of Ireland’s Best Managed Companies as part of the global Best Managed standard. Within weeks, it picked up a second high-profile accolade with Business in the Community announcing that it had achieved Silver Accreditation in the Business and Biodiversity Charter.
The announcement was made at the launch of the company’s biodiversity roadmap, its Natural Assets Action Plans (NAAP) — a comprehensive biodiversity report produced by Mannok’s Environmental Team in partnership with Ulster Wildlife which outlined plans to ensure “the conservation, restoration and enhancement of every area of Mannok’s 2,000 acres of land on both sides of the border”.
During UK Construction Week in early October, the programme kicked off with the planting of 600 native Scots Pine trees in land at Crievehill Quarry which has been dedicated as a carbon offsetting site. While exhibiting at the event in Birmingham, Mannok connected via live video link to the site and planted a tree for each visitor to the company’s stand as part of its interactive drive to “Kick The Carbon”.
Completing the list of recent awards, Mannok duly earned the Best Sustainability Initiative at the show.
