On Tuesday the 18th July, Valleys to Coast (V2C) successfully retained the Green Dragon Level 2 accreditation for another year.
The Green Dragon Environmental Standard is designed to promote good environmental management within the organisation and to help manage activities in a way which impacts positively upon the environment.
The benefits of achieving the standard include: improved energy efficiency, reduction in V2C's carbon footprint and improved environmental sustainability.
This accreditation has been held for a number of years now and some of the positive benefits to V2C and their customers have included; improved waste recycling, making V2C’s offices more energy efficient, using latest technologies to help customers save money in their homes and investment in External Wall Insulation.
Rob Thomas, V2C’s Assistant Director of Property Services said “Achieving the Green Dragon Standard demonstrates V2C's commitment to environmental management and each year V2C have to go through a rigorous inspection audit to maintain this certification. We are thrilled to retain this for another year and shows how dedicated we are to making our thriving communities become greener while also being a successful organisation.”
