KINGDOM Housing Association has revealed the organisation has won a Gold Green Apple Environment Award in the Scottish campaign to find the greenest individuals, companies, councils and communities.

Kingdom competed against more than 800 other nominations for Environmental Best Practice with its approach to sustainability.

A trophy and certificate was presented by Karl Tullett, director of The Green Organisation, at a ceremony at Cornhill Castle, Biggar. Kingdom has now been invited to have its winning paper published in The Green Book, an international work of reference on environmental best practice.

Bill Banks, Kingdom’s group chief executive, commented, “We are delighted to receive the Scottish Green Apple Gold Environment Award. It recognises the work we have been implementing across the organisation for many years, and acknowledges the commitment of colleagues, in all our departments, to environmental standards and sustainability principles.

“The award not only recognised the high quality environmental standards we implement as part of our housing and maintenance programmes, but the wider sustainability practices we have adopted.”
