Once again, Engie has  been named as top sustainable FM company, achieving 1st place in the Sustainable FM Index 2018 awards. The win makes Engie the first company to win this prestigious award twice.

In the Sustainable FM Index - SFMI 2018 awards, Engie’s sustainability performance was subject to a rigorous desktop and in-depth two-day assessment and compared against the performance of 25 other UK FM providers.

Engie was able to demonstrate best practice through climate change initiatives such as support for National Clean Air Day and its Clean Van Commitment. Engie's newly established Scrutiny Board & Responsible Business Charter has also been key, creating a wider sense of transparency and accountability for the business that is critical in the industry at this time.

 

Deserved winners

Chris Havers, Programme Director of the SFMI, said: “Engie are deserved winners of the SFMI. They have shown commitment to embedding a culture of sustainability across their FM business, and their approach to doing this has come through hard work in implementing a transformational programme which is led by Board level sponsors and targeted projects that drive sustainability throughout the business.”

Acclaro/SFMI MD Sunil Shah also noted: “We were thoroughly impressed with Engie’s leadership and commitment to sustainability and its transformation programme.”

Wilfrid Petrie, CEO, Engie UK & Ireland added: “This result recognises Engie’s commitment to driving sustainability throughout our business and beyond, in our supply chain and with our customers in helping them improve their own performance."
