BSC launches environmental award
11 August 2010
The British Safety Council (BSC) has launched the Globe of Honour award scheme to recognise those organisations that go beyond compliance with the law, and strive for best practice in all areas of environmental management. The award mirrors BSC’s Sword of Honour scheme, which recognises the top performers in occupational health and safety from around the world.
In order to enter, organisations must have undertaken the British Safety Council Five Star Environmental Audit, and must have been awarded the maximum five out of five stars in their audit performance. Only a select number of the best applicants each year will go on to be awarded a Globe. Applications will be judged annually by a panel of independent adjudicators.
BSC chief executive, Julie Nerney believes that gone are the days when the sole purpose of big business was to generate revenue for the shareholders. “Today, corporate social responsibility continues to climb the agenda for many organisations and environmental management is at the forefront,” she says. “The Globe of Honour will strive to raise standards even further and encourage more organisations to be the best they can, for themselves and for their environment.”
