Pioneering environmental waste management company, ACM Environmental PLC, has announced that fresh produce supplier Fresh Direct is a winner of a Greener Path Award for consistently achieving zero % to landfill in 2017 for all of its English depots; Bicester, Dagenham, Cambridge and Wigan.

The Greener Path Awards were created to celebrate the great work businesses across the UK are doing in reducing the impact they have on the environment. Organisations that demonstrate exemplary effort and achievement in minimizing waste, boosting recycling and increasing landfill diversion while seeking out innovative and sustainable ways to handle waste streams, are potential candidates. By working in partnership with ACM Environmental, Fresh Direct, has fully optimised the diversion of waste from landfill in 2017.

Andy Jacobs, Chief Executive of ACM Environmental said “We are delighted that Fresh Direct is a recipient of the Zero Waste to Landfill Award. We have worked in partnership with them to help implement an environmentally-sound waste management strategy and to see them achieve such impressive landfill diversion results is extremely gratifying.”

“Working in partnership with ACM Environmental we have managed to reach our optimum environmental performance,” says Fresh Direct’s Supply Chain Director, Ian Humphryes. “ACM has a unique business model supported by a nationally-integrated network of recycling and reprocessing facilities. This enables Fresh Direct to minimise the amount of waste it produces, optimise its recycling levels, eliminate the use of landfill, and reduce its impact on the environment with significantly reduced costs.”
