NSBRC shortlisted for two National Sustainability Awards in 2023

The Residence Collection is delighted to support The National Self Build & Renovation Centre, who have been shortlisted in two categories for the 2023 National Sustainability Awards!

The National Sustainability Awards recognise the pioneers of sustainability, with the judging panel looking for great stories of innovation and breadth of impact across all sectors, that can help build a more sustainable and better future.

They have been shortlisted in two categories, ‘Team of the Year’, recognising the efforts of the centre’s Marketing Team to promote their eco offering and ‘Rising Star of the Year’, recognising the individual efforts of their Content Marketing Manager, Katy Hardwick.

We are thrilled to be nominated for these prestigious awards. We have placed sustainability at the heart of all our activities and are proud of the workshops, surgeries and courses we have run, designed to help people improve the energy efficiency of their homes. The first thing visitors to the NSBRC see, as they walk through our doors, is our sustainability pledge, our promise to help visitors build better, more sustainable homes. These nominations recognise the work we have done in this crucial area, and will act as motivation to keep going on this important mission.’

Harvey Fremlin, the NSBRC’s Managing Director

Although the awards, which are in their second year, are a celebration, they also serve to show how our society can, with good leadership, be lead through the post-pandemic recovery into a new and more sustainable path. The awards look for the best in every category, recognising organisations that understand the importance of ensuring that future generations will be able to live in a cleaner, greener world. There are many well known organisations that are nominated in 2023.

It is an honour for our relatively small, employee-owned, business to be up against giant corporations with household names such as NatWest, Lombard and OVO Energy. For us the recognition of our activities is the biggest reward. We realised that sustainability must play a key part in our offering and the team have worked tremendously hard to ensure we are providing the best, impartial advice to our visitors – both here at the centre and online. I am particularly delighted for Katy, a younger member of our team who has embraced the opportunity and is our internal ‘sustainability champion’.

Harvey Fremlin

The winners will be announced on 5th October at an Awards Gala Dinner, taking place at The Waldorf Hilton, London.
