Oakland Care wins Green World Environment Award

Luxury provider Oakland Care has been presented with a Green World Environment Award by the world-renowned Green Organisation.

Launched in 1994, the international environmental group established the awards to reward and promote environmental best practices around the globe, supported by the Environment Agency, the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health, and the Chartered Institution of Wastes Management.

Oakland Care won the award as part of The Green Organisation’s campaign to find the world’s greenest countries, companies, and communities. There were more than 500 nominations in the Green World Awards for Environmental Best Practice. Oakland is the first and only care home provider to have ever achieved this accolade, which will be presented at a ceremony in Miami in April.

Oakland has retained its status as the only carbon neutral care group in the UK for a second year running, and has achieved Level 3 certification by Green Mark, the highest grade awarded by the sustainability specialist. Numerous green initiatives have been introduced by the senior leadership team, bringing team members and residents together for collaborative projects such as tree planting and litter picking. This culminated in the successful launch of a new strategy promoting green initiatives across all eight Oakland care homes in September.

Oakland Care CEO Joanne Balmer BEM, said: “This is an incredible achievement, and I am extremely proud that we have attained this global award for our environmental and sustainability efforts. It is testament to all the hard work and commitment across Oakland Care to work as one towards this pivotal worldwide objective. To become the first and only care home provider to have ever achieved the accolade is very special, particularly given that we are first to do so on an international stage. We strive to inspire others within our sector to push ahead with their own journey and contribute to the fight against climate change. Our sector can truly be a positive force as we collectively work to achieve a net zero society.”
