Ecoserv Group, the largest family-owned provider of sustainable FM in the UK, has won a prestigious Scale-Up Award. The company scooped the Sustainable Scale-up Business of the Year category in recognition of its Net Zero strategy and a commitment to minimising the eco impact of the built environment.
“This is fantastic recognition for all the hard work that is taking place within the business to accelerate carbon reduction and remain at the forefront of sustainability,” explains Sally-Ann Van Blerk, Group Sustainability Director at Ecoserv Group. “We have implemented a clear strategy that continually looks to reinforce our focus on environmental, social and ethical responsibility, as we believe that playing our part in tackling the climate crisis is the right thing to do.”
The Scale-Up Awards ceremony took place at Tobacco Dock in Wapping, London, and brought together 450 business leaders, entrepreneurs and VIPs from across the UK. More than 500 businesses entered the 15 categories, which celebrate high-growth companies and the entrepreneurs that run them. The event was hosted by comedian Russell Kane and high-profile attendees included Theo Paphitis, Touker Suleyman, Alpesh Patel OBE, Josh Robson and Emma Sayle.
Jean-Henri Beukes, CEO of Ecoserv Group added: “We are very proud to receive this prestigious award, because sustainability has been part of our DNA since the company was founded and is central to our growth ambitions. The climate crisis is something very personal for me and the business as a whole, so we need to make a stand before it is too late. This is about our children and their future, and unless we make radical change, they will miss out on what we have taken for granted.”
