Double Award Win for Kingdom

11 July 2011

The Kingdom Shopping Centre in Glenrothes, which is managed by Capita Symonds, had a very successful month in June, picking up two prestigious awards for excellence in environmental practices.

The shopping mall started the month by winning the Corporate Responsibility Award, presented by Scottish Business in the Community as part of Quality Scotland's Scottish Awards for Business Excellence, which took place at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre.

This was then followed up by an awards ceremony hosted by The Green Organisation in Westminster, London, which saw the Kingdom Shopping Centre declared an ‘International Green Hero’. This award was presented by renowned inventor Trevor Bayliss OBE, world famous for inventing the wind-up radio.

Both awards were presented in recognition of the Kingdom Centre’s commitment to environmental best practice and to reducing the centre’s carbon emissions. Centre Manager Robert Winter commented: “We are delighted that the Kingdom Centre’s efforts have been rewarded by achievement of both of these awards. We have been working hard over a number of years to implement a wide variety of environmental initiatives that have seen some very successful results; the Centre’s carbon footprint has been reduced by over 45% since 2006. We’re not stopping here though, we have some exciting plans for new environmental initiatives to be implemented in the near future that we look forward to sharing with everyone.”
