'Platinum' Status for JP Corry in Environmental Benchmarking Survey

12 February 2019

JP Corry has been named as one of Northern Ireland’s top companies for environmental leadership.

The company has achieved Platinum status – the highest scoring level – in the Northern Ireland Environmental Benchmarking Survey. The survey recognises Northern Ireland's most sustainable businesses who are committed to managing the environmental impact of their business operations and seeks to reward those organisations who are going above and beyond their legal requirements.

 

The Survey, which is run by Business in the Community, sponsored by Moy Park and supported by the Northern Ireland Environment Agency through the Department for Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs, recently celebrated it's 20th anniversary edition, attracting the highest number of participants in the past four years.

David Small, Chief Executive, Northern Ireland Environment Agency said: “The Survey is established as the leading tool in Northern Ireland to provide participants with proof of their green status. This is done through detailed analysis of their environmental management, improvement and impact. It is a powerful driver of environmental performance and we are delighted to support it once again this year.”

Chris Collins, Head of Operations at JP Corry commented: "As part of our long term commitment to operate in a sustainable manner, we continue to take a responsible approach to environmental management across our business.  The Environmental Benchmarking Survey is a vital exercise that we undertake each year to help manage our environmental impact, measure progress and identify areas for improvement."

He continued:  "Since 2014, we have made significant improvements to our business practices to ultimately reduce our impact.  As a result, we have seen year on year improvements in our scores resulting in Platinum status in this year’s survey.  We are absolutely delighted to be recognised as one of Northern Ireland’s top companies for environmental leadership."
