Proud recipients of The Queen’s Award for Sustainability

Posted on 25 August 2015

Timothy Cox, Her Majesty's Lord-Lieutenant for the County of Warwickshire, recently paid a visit to Co-operative House in Warwick to formally present us with The Queen’s Award for Sustainability.

We were originally announced as a recipient of the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in Sustainable Development back in April. This meant that we were recognised for our positive environmental initiatives, sustained growth, and contribution to the local communities we serve.

Only 12 companies were granted this prestigious award in the Sustainable Development category in 2015. As a result, we’re extremely proud not only of this achievement, but also of the praise we received for saving over £1million a year through energy efficiency and waste recycling projects.

Ben Reid, Chief Executive of The Midcounties Co-operative, said: “We’re extremely proud to have received this award. As a Co-operative we are led and owned by our members and are committed to ensuring that our success impacts on the communities we are serving, creating a better, fairer society and more stainable future by investing back into them.”
