We’ve won an accolade for our commitment to the environment at an industry awards ceremony, after swapping one of the gasses in our refrigeration systems for a more environmentally friendly alternative.

The ACR News Awards recognise innovation in the air conditioning and refrigeration industries, and we were presented with the Environmental Project of the Year award at a glittering awards ceremony.

Replacing the gas in our fridges is just one of the ways that we work to make our business more sustainable, and between 2009 and 2015 we reduced our energy use relative to sales by nearly 26 per cent.

Lots of our outlets also boast solar panels and LED lighting and some also use heat reclaimed from refrigeration to heat the building.

Store Development Manager Matthew Wilkinson said, “We’re really proud of winning this award.

“Looking after the environment is all part of looking after our members and the local communities they live in, and we take lots of measures to ensure we do just that.”
