Northern Ireland-based construction firm Henry Brothers has been recognised for its commitment to environmental protection with a landmark accolade.

The company was awarded Platinum Status, the highest accolade available, in Business in the Community Northern Ireland's (BiTC NI) Environmental Benchmarking Survey.

Recognising businesses that go above and beyond to reduce their impact on the environment, the survey benchmarks companies that drive change through integrating sustainable practices into corporate strategies.

CSR Director at Henry Brothers, Ian Henry, was also named the Silver winner of BiTC NI's George Dawson Award, which celebrates individuals that champion sustainability within their organisations.

Speaking about the recognition, Ian said: "It is an honour to have achieved Platinum status once again, showcasing the proactive steps that we take as a company to ensure we are acting in a responsible and transparent manner.

"Although we have always made an effort to integrate eco-friendly initiatives into our operations, we recently made our biggest commitment to sustainability yet with the launch of our Journey to Net Zero by 2050 strategy, outlining how we will halve our CO2e emissions by 2030.

"Achieving Platinum Status and the Silver George Dawson Award at BiTC NI Awards is a real testament to our staff, acknowledging their commitment and innovation on the road to reaching Net Zero."
