A core objective for Nelmac is to be “a leader on the pathway to sustainability”.
Nelmac’s recognition for sustainability came at the recent Southern Region Sustainable Business Network Awards when its nursery arm was awarded a judges’ commendation.
“Winning this award is fantastic, it’s an external recognition of the deeply held belief in the importance of sustainability. It’s win-win for Nelmac and for the community,” says Lee Babe, Nelmac Chief Executive. “We are always looking for ways to do what we say we do – at Nelmac we’re taking care of your environment.”
The principles of sustainability influence every sphere of Nelmac’s business. “It’s our belief that sustainable business is also profitable business,” says Rob Fryer, Nelmac conservation and ecology leader. “A focus on sustainability does, in fact, make good business sense. Often sustainability is regarded as an environmental issue when it is actually much wider than that. We believe we have a responsibility to operate a financially sustainable business which is socially responsible, respects the environment and cares about tomorrow.”
