Another green award for Stansted

Staff at Stansted were presented with free Christmas trees last week in celebration of the airport winning a top environmental award, the Green Apple, for the second year running.

Stansted won gold in the environmental best practice category for its Biodiversity Week, the first of its kind, in March this year, which saw 3,000 silver birch trees handed out to staff.

Last year, the airport also picked up the top prize at the awards for its ongoing support of local foodbanks in Uttlesford, Essex and East Hertfordshire.

Stansted environment manager Martin Churley said: “To win one Green Apple award is a great achievement but to win two years in a row is fantastic and testament to the focus the airport puts into its environmental work.

“The aim of our Biodiversity Week was to highlight what Stansted is doing to maintain and improve biodiversity. Initiatives such as this help to ensure we not only achieve this, but that the airport grows in the most sustainable way possible.”

On the Christmas tree giveaway, Churley added: “It’s another way to help biodiversity in our area and a great gift for our hardworking staff – another initiative to enhance the local environment through engagement with our colleagues.”
