Logistik gets gold for being green




In the second news story to appear on EVENTS:review about Logistik this week, the design and communications agency has become the first business of its type and size in Leeds to win a national environmental award.

The gold Tidy Business Standards award was achieved with the help of Second Nature, Logistik’s comprehensive sustainability programme to reduce carbon emissions, cut waste and build stronger, sustainable relationships both in the workplace and the local community.

The Second Nature blueprint, combined with practices already in place, proved more than enough for Tidy Business Standards to honour the agency.

Tidy Business is a national award scheme with three levels. It aims to encourage and reward good environmental business practice, including implementing waste minimisation initiatives as well as improving the local environment.

To win its highest accolade – the gold award – Logistik proved that it is positively contributing to the local community and local environment, both of which are key areas of focus for Second Nature. Other criteria include businesses having a trade waste agreement and making sure they dispose of their waste responsibly. They must also reuse and recycle their waste in line with stringent waste guidelines.

Second Nature is also helping Logistik to work its way towards ISO 14001 – the international environmental management standard.

Dirk Mischendahl, founder and chairman of Logistik, said: “We are really proud to have achieved the Gold Tidy Business Award. Logistik is committed to being more sustainable and the Second Nature initiative encompasses everything from reducing waste, pollution and carbon emissions to looking after our own workforce and the local community.”
