British Land nominata “Carbon Champion of the Year”

British Land Announced as Carbon Champion of the Year in the CIBSE Building Performance Awards 2013
At  the prestigious Charterd Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) awards held at the Grosvenor House Hotel, London, British Land was announced as the Carbon Champion of Year. This was the overarching award for the night, drawing on the winners from all categories.
In recognising this achievement, judges commented that British Land is an excellent example of how good building performance supports good commercial performance. Since 2009, British Land has achieved energy cost savings for its occupiers of £3.3 million and cut carbon emissions by 24,500 tonnes.
Justin Snoxall, Head of the Business Group at British Land, said on receiving the prestigious award: «We are delighted to be Carbon Champion of the Year and for a second year running be awarded the Client Energy Management Award in recognition of our work. Our commitment to energy management is stronger than ever and we believe that green buildings do add value and reduce the obsolescence of our assets in the longer term».
CIBSE President, David Fisk, said: «Since our buildings use nearly half our energy, this should be a matter of national priority. The projects and products showcased tonight show us what can be achieved and raise the bar of best practice for all of us in the built environment».
Earlier in the week, Prime Minister David Cameron spoke at the launch of the Government’s Energy Efficiency Mission at the Royal Society in London. He underlined the Government’s commitment to energy efficiency and said that only the greenest and most energy efficient countries would win the global race. He commented: «To those who say we just cannot afford to prioritise green energy right now, my view is we can’t afford not to».
