The latest news from the world of sustainability, the latest views from the brains behind Best Foot Forward
Media, 23 May 2012
Best Foot Forward won the award for best Environment Product/Service at the Sustainability Live! Environment and Energy Awards last night.
The company beat off stiff competition from Debut Services, Kwik-Klik Hoardings Limited, Plastic Surgeon, Unipart Technology Logistics/Sky and URS.
The award was for its new service, Product Portfolio Footprinting, which enables businesses with complex supply chains and thousands of different products to quickly measure and manage their carbon footprint.
This approach was piloted with FMCG sector organisations including Tesco, Pepsico, WRAP and Crown Paints, to help these businesses understand and reduce greenhouse gas emissions throughout their supply chains.
The judges noted how the service “took a very complex subject and made it simple”.
Chris Stanley, a director of Best Foot Forward who collected the award at the ceremony last night said:
“We’re delighted to have won the award. It’s great to be recognised for once again coming up with innovative ways of helping our clients make sense out of complexity. We’re proud of our team for developing the new approach, and of our clients for going so far to tackle the environmental impact of their supply chains. We believe this development will revolutionise the way that big businesses approach carbon footprinting.”
