Churchill receives silver SFMI award

We are delighted to announce that we have received a silver award from the Sustainable Facilities Management Index (SFMI). This is the second time Churchill has taken part in the assessment and improves on the bronze award received in 2021, marking our continued growth in sustainability and ESG.

The SFMI is run annually by sustainability consultancy Acclaro Advisory and is the only sustainability benchmark for the UK FM sector. Its purpose is to embed sustainability into the management and operations of the FM sector. It is an opportunity for businesses to improve their performance, make sustainability part of the eve and be challenged on how to do more.

Acclaro assessed us against 23 different criteria in the Environmental, Governance and Social Value areas. Our score increased in each of these three areas compared with 2021, with the largest improvements seen in the ‘governance’ section. The award particularly recognised our advanced performance in the areas of management systems and compliance, with both topics being its highest scoring areas.

The SFMI silver award is the latest recognition of our ESG work. In 2022, the company achieved the gold medal for sustainability by EcoVadis, a global sustainability accreditor.

Hannah Dales, our Group Environment Manager, said: “We are delighted to have been awarded silver in the 2022 SFMI assessment. We are committed to embedding sustainability into our operations and culture, and it is fantastic to be recognised in this way.”

2022’s full results can be found in the ‘SFMI Summary Report 2022’.
