Lucas wins Commitment to the Environment award at KEiBA
We have some very exciting news! Following on from our announcement that we had been nominated as finalists for two awards in the Kent Excellence in Business Awards, we can finally announce that we won the Business Commitment to the Environment award last night!
50 finalists were confirmed for the awards ceremony and this year commitment to the environment category attracted a wide range of applicants and showcased the very best of Kent in all aspects. Out of three finalists for the award, the judges commented that “Lucas were the standout winners of the environment award as we demonstrated that as a county, we can nurture businesses that can excel in the highly competitive London construction sector, through passion, innovation and environmental commitment.”
Our efforts were recognised in last night’s awards as our submission included our commitment to using FSC certified timber on sites and where possible Grown in Britain. We also have developed a surface coating for buildings which reduces the harmful gases in the air; Lucas Breathe, which we launched this year. Lucas Breathe cuts nitrous oxide pollution from traffic and resists the surface growth of mould, killing airborne spores and allergens which cause asthma and breathing problems.
Lucas are also ambassadors for water based paint and will always specify and use water based where possible on site..
All of these factors we believe are the reasons why we have won this award and we couldn’t be more thrilled.
Danny Lucas and the Lucas team were there last night to pick up the award.
Danny Lucas, Executive Chairman and Managing Director commented on the win: “It’s become our mission to promote workplace and environmental health and safety, so to win this award and to be recognised for our achievements is a huge honour. On behalf of Lucas, I’d like to thank Kent County Council and KM Group for organising a fantastic evening for the awards and bringing businesses across Kent together for an evening of networking and celebration”.
