FCC Environment celebrates landmark year
“Carolyn Cross Communication completed work on the 2019 Sustainability Report and we are really pleased with the result. She quickly got to grips with what we do across the breadth of our business and also our personality as a company, so she was able to articulate our successes in the right tone of voice. What’s more, she got it all right first time with virtually no need for editing and worked seamlessly with our designer overseeing the whole project.” Julie Fourcade, Head of External Affairs at FCC Environment
Julie Fourcade, Head of External Affairs at FCC, said: “We have so much to be proud of over the last year – our 2019 report is a real testament to the commitment and innovative approach of our team. It shows the full extent of our drive to scrutinise every area of our business and bring about positive change in the communities we work in.”
FCC Environment manages some 100 contracts across 60 local authorities. In 2019, two of its energy from waste plants processed a landmark million tonnes, while another, Millerhill Recycling and Energy Recovery Centre, opened its doors. FCC also became the first UK waste management company to achieve certification to the latest versions of four globally recognized standards, for Quality, Environmental Management, Energy Management, and Health and Safety.
Health and Safety was a major focus, which built on previous work to develop a more mature safety culture across the business. At the same time, FCC has invested in community projects and historic sites such as Bletchley Park, funded beehives and engaged with schools to promote the environment.
Four major new contracts have expanded the business in Suffolk, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and Scotland. Typically, these have included added value in the form of additional reuse or community projects. Crews, individuals and sites have also excelled. They been rewarded, both through FCC’s recognition scheme and further afield, winning national awards.
Julie concluded: “Our Sustainability Report 2019 covers all areas of the business – from carbon emissions to apprenticeships. It is a fantastic calling card for our company, which really illustrates the extent of our operation, our ambition and our commitment.”
