Sheppard Robson wins the Camden and Islington Sustainability Award for Employee Engagement

2nd December 2019

Sheppard Robson's Green Week programme has been recognised as the best sustainability-focused employee engagement programme by the Camden and Islington Sustainability Awards. The awards are hosted by the Camden Climate Change Alliance (CCCA) and Islington Sustainable Energy Partnership (ISEP), celebrating the achievements of businesses, community organisations and schools, who are leading the way in the delivery of sustainable services and products.

The Camden and Islington Sustainability Awards are an opportunity to cultivate cross-borough collaboration and knowledge exchange at a time when boroughs are moving towards new zero-carbon targets to tackle the climate crisis. For over 10 years, CCCA and ISEP, London’s unique pioneering sustainability networks, have been working with businesses and other organisations to identify and deliver projects that reduce energy costs, cut carbon emissions and manage environmental impacts.

Sheppard Robson won the 2019 Employee Engagement Award, recognising our efforts over the last five years for our Green Week programme. Staff across the company started the Green Week programme of sustainability events in 2015 to give us more time to consider the impact our work has on the environment and how design can more effectively engage with the increasingly pertinent issue of climate change. As the topic of wellness has come to the fore, we have coupled a focus on sustainability with looking at how our physical environment impacts our productivity, mental health, and physical wellbeing.
