Eleanor Healthcare Group, a Lewisham-based care provider, has won a Mayor of Lewisham Business Award.
The company, whose head office is on Lewisham High Street, won the Environmental Practice awards for the measures it has put in place to be as “green” as possible.
Founded in 1979, Eleanor Healthcare Group provide a range of care services including home care, healthcare staff, care homes, patient transport, hospital logistics and consultancy across London and the South West.
Eleanor was recognised by the award judging panel for its rigorous environmental policy which includes energy efficient vehicles and electrical equipment, LED lighting control systems, and energy efficient heating systems.
The company has a strict green purchasing policy, while everything is computerised to avoid wasting paper. Eleanor also holds the internationally recognised ISO 14001 accreditation for environmental management.
