Target: Continued Reduction in Operational Carbon

Lintott is steadfast in championing environmental best practice.  Developed over many years, Lintott has an integrated Business Quality Management System, certified to the International Environmental Standard, ISO 14001.  A programme of continuous improvement and stretching targets has enabled Lintott to reduce its operational carbon impact by 9% over each of the last seven years! This includes activities such as converting the fleet to hybrid vehicles as well as comprehensive and growing energy efficiency measures.

Specifically, these seek to reduce the demand for energy via improved schemes and best practice. But it doesn’t stop there! Lintott is also in the process of developing an onsite wildlife sanctuary – known as “Barnabee Meadow”.  This includes fresh plants, a large pond, bug factory, bird boxes, and an extensive garden area complete with picnic benches, which provides a rest and relaxation area for employees and visitors.

Positive People, Positive Impact!

Lintott was very proud to be involved with the nmcn People Awards 2020 held on Thursday 12th December, and especially as one of it’s employees Carl Carpenter won an award for “Positive Impact”.

Carl joined Lintott in May 2006, as a Junior Design Engineer.  His career path has seen him progress to a Project Engineer position, which is highly technical and the hinge pin between the project manager and the engineering solution.  This role involves a high degree of stakeholder engagement and most notably with the client.  In this role, Carl epitomises the essence of customer service, and is consistently going “above and beyond”, which led him to receive Lintott’s “Outstanding Contribution of the Year” in 2018, for being “Best in Class”, and most recently receiving “Outstanding Achievers Award” in November 2020. This latest recognition is testament to his high capability and hardworking ethos and sets the bar for others to follow.  He is a good friend and cares deeply for his colleagues at Lintott.

Congratulations to Carl from all your friends and colleagues at Lintott, and a big well done to the rest of the winners!
