Leading construction and international integrated support services business, Carillion, has received the prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise, recognising its contribution to sustainable development.
Carillion was announced as one of 176 award winners, just one of 11 recipients in the sustainable development category, back in April. Lord-Lieutenant of the West Midlands, John Crabtree, officially presented the award to Carillion at the Midlands Metropolitan Hospital, which is currently being constructed in Smethwick.
2017 marks the 51st anniversary of the scheme, with recipients of the prestigious business award having to demonstrate outstanding results in their respective fields of innovation, international trade or sustainable development.
Awardees can use the esteemed Queen’s Awards emblem for the next five years.
The presentation of the award is in recognition of Carillion’s commitment to balancing environmental, economic and social impacts, plus evidence of sector-leadership through its Sustainability 2020 strategy.
