The awards, which took place on 15 November at The Royal Horseguards Hotel in London, were for the 2020 and 2021 awards as last years ceremony did not take place due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Marston’s was acknowledged as the Green World Ambassador for Best Environmental Practice and took home a Gold award (from the 2020 awards) and a Silver award (from the 2021 awards) in the Waste Management category for its work in reducing emissions from waste, and overall waste, to landfill across 145 Brains pubs.
The Silver award comes after Marston’s, partnered with Novati who were behind Marston's ‘Best Environmental Practice’ award win in 2019, was acknowledged as a Green World Ambassador for Best Environmental Practice following its acquisition of 145 Brains pubs, and comes off the back of a four-year project designed to maximise recycling and zero waste to landfill, a target that was met by Marston’s in 2018 and made it the first pub group to achieve zero waste to landfill in 2018.
Marston’s and Brains pubs energy manager Chris White said: “We are so proud of our team for receiving global recognition for the work we have done in reducing waste.
Best environmental practice
“We continue to work harder and harder to ensure that, as a company, we are as environmentally friendly as possible and it is even more apparent now just how important that work is to help us lead a sustainable future.
“Our partnership with Novati continues to help us do just that, our mutual commitment to be fully engaged with innovation and technology has allowed us to transform our waste management for the better.”
