Brit Parking, UK’s Help Me Park Gatwick and Cophall Gatwick Parking are London Gatwick Airport approved car parking companies. There are fewer than 10 approved car parking operators for London Gatwick Airport. Approved car parking operators are selected based on reliability as well as whether or not they meet good trading and security park mark standards. Gatwick has revealed plans to become the UK’s first carbon neutral airport by the end of spring. Last year, Gatwick announced it would be the world’s first airport to recycle Category 1 waste at a dedicated, on-site waste plant. Plans are in motion to convert the waste into energy to heat the North Terminal. “We view sustainability and responsibility as a very important component of our business as we strive continuously to fulfill our promises to maximise investors’ return, while advocating sustainable business practices,” added Dato’ Razak.

Max Shangkar,the Global Chief Executive Officer for Max Capital Management Holding Ltd said, “Only through accountable action will businesses thrive. Businesses needs to align with SGDs goals to differentiate themselves from competitors so that they can re-align, re-position and re-invent while seeking to expand in growth sectors.

The Organising Chairman, Chris Daniel Wong further added, “The awards showcased global success stories on how businesses can be responsible and yet still achieve the triple bottom line of People, Planet and Profit.
