Service Development Managers Kristina Jackson and Helene Carpentier were among the three finalists in the Sustainability/CSR Manager of the Year category, with Kristina winning the top spot.
This week, ISS UK’s Kristina Jackson and Helene Carpentier, both Service Development Managers, were shortlisted as two of the top three in the Sustainability/CSR Manager of the Year category at the edie Sustainability Leaders Awards.
Kristina’s exceptional work implementing projects that support the Zero Waste to Landfill target for a major retail bank client across 2,156 UK and Ireland sites was recognised, and she was crowned the 2017 Sustainability/CSR Manager of the Year. This well-deserved accomplishment reflects her passionate and intelligent approach to managing resources – her work this year has contributed to one of the most impactful environmentally focused projects in the banking sector.
The edie Sustainability Leaders Awards judges said:
“Kristina’s positive impact in such a relatively short space of time has been truly remarkable. She has demonstrated that taking a big-picture approach to sustainability can help to drive engagement, deliver clear results and achieve social good.”
The other finalist, Helene, has been responsible for the implementation of a best-in-class sustainability strategy at a leading London airport and increasing the recycling rate of one of its terminals to a world class rate of 75%. Through a strategic focus on employee engagement and behaviour change, Helene has managed to drive award-winning environmental sustainability at the global transport hub.
At ISS, Kristina and Helene are joint chairs of a sustainability and resource management leadership forum. They are working to build a network of aspirational leaders in order to shape the way 21st century workplaces perceive and manage their waste and resources.
These employees’ accomplishments and their recent awards illustrate ISS’ commitment to attracting and retaining talent who are focused on delivering the calibre of projects that our customers need – and who advance sustainability within the industries we service.
