Employment and skills provider, Reed in Partnership, who are currently working towards achieving Green Mark Level 1, were proud to be awarded the 2013 National ESF Sustainable Development Mainstreaming Leader Awards (Policy and Plan) at a ceremony on Thursday.

The national assessment panel commentated on the clear planning that transforms the company’s commitment to sustainability into straightforward, practical action.

As well as receiving the award, Eleanor gave a presentation to share Reed's best practices and some tips for achieving sustainable development. As part of the award, Reed in Partnership will be sent a pack of native English trees sourced from the Woodland Trust charity.
