Builders merchant Jewson has been shortlisted as a finalist for the 2014 Finance for the Future Awards in the Innovative New Idea category.
The awards, which recognise the role of the finance function in creating sustainable business models and economies, will be judged on 5th September 2014. The winner will be announced at the awards ceremony in London on the 14th October 2014.
The Finance for the Future Awards, which are in their third year, are organised by ICAEW and The Prince’s Accounting for Sustainability Project (A4S) to highlight the important role that finance teams play in helping businesses achieve positive long-term environmental, social, economic and financial outcomes.
The awards go beyond green issues and corporate responsibility and celebrate organisations that are drawing on the leadership and skillset of the finance team to put sustainability at the heart of their operations and strategy.
“We are delighted to have been shortlisted by the Finance for the Future Awards 2014 in the Innovative New Idea category,” said Rod Leigh, sustainability director at Jewson. “Through our high levels of recycling and our innovative energy from waste initiative we are proud to be raising the bar for the construction industry.”
