We are delighted to announce Circular Ecology’s role in winning a Green Apple award for the Built Environment.

NSBM are based in Cambridgeshire and Hampshire. The project entered was an Eco Rating Tool for the built environment. It focused on the company’s eco-efficiency approach and the importance of the circular economy. The aim of the NSBM Eco approach was to provide the built environment with an improved capability for assessment & specification of building elements for sustainable design & build decisions. This is in essence to close three important gaps in the built environment:

1.       Performance
2.       Environment
3.       Affordability

Danny Lee, Sustainability Director at NSBM Ltd, said “We would like to thank Circular Ecology for their support and for the development of the NSBM Eco Rating tool used in the awards entry”.

As a result of this Green Apple Award, NSBM Ltd has been invited to apply for the top global honour of a Green World Award and have our winning paper published in The Green Book (the leading international work of reference on environmental best practice) so that others around the world can follow their example and learn from their achievement.

Alex Rius, Construction Director at NSBM Ltd, said “The development of the NSBM Eco rating tool will speed-up and improve the quality of our sustainability assessments for our clients’ projects. Thank you Circular Ecology.”

Circular Ecology and NSBM are planning to do a joint webinar about the project. More details to be announced here soon…
