As we entered 2023, our team realised how important it is to place sustainability at the heart of our offerings – not just for the months ahead, but the years to follow. At the Centre, we’ve continued to offer an array of online surgeries and courses, designed to help people improve the energy efficiency of their homes. We’ve also worked hard to help reduce our carbon footprint by installing LED lighting throughout our Centre, increasing the number of EV charging points, and will soon be installing solar panels – to name a few of our activities.
The NSBRC were thrilled to be nominated across two categories: ‘Team of the Year’ for our in-house marketing team (consisting of Harvey, Clare & Katy), as well as in the ‘Rising Star’ category, reflecting the individual efforts of Katy – who is an internal ‘sustainability champion’ alongside Harvey. As a close-knit team of employee-owners, our nominations are representative of the combined efforts of the whole team, and is certainly an achievement we all feel proud of.
We knew whatever the result, the awards would be a special evening. Unfortunately, we didn’t win this year, although we had a wonderful evening celebrating and reflecting on all we’ve achieved so far whilst working towards implementing more sustainable business practices, alongside – of course – helping our visitors build better, more sustainable homes.
