We are delighted to have won a Bronze Green Apple Award for Environmental Best Practice.

Andrew Stafford, Danny Vose, Kelly Whittam and Steven Lowe attended the carbon-neutral presentation award ceremony held at the Houses of Parliament on 10 November 2014. The award was presented to Danny Vose, Head of Investment and Steven Lowe, Purchasing Manager by Miss UK Green Queen.

Our winning submission focused on our use of Marley Eco-logic tiles, which have two major green credentials. They are manufactured from 50% recycled materials and the tiles are coated with a special chemical which removes pollutants (nitro-oxides) from the atmosphere.  The project has achieved an A+ rating in the BRE Green Guide to Specification and is accredited to the BES 6001 standard for responsible sourcing.

New Charter has replaced over 2,000 roofs across Tameside since 2009. Over their lifetime these roofs could remove as much nitrogen oxide from the atmosphere as that produced by a vehicle traveling over six million miles on Tameside roads.
