Recognition for commitment to sustainability follows National Gold Award at the International Green Apple Awards 2007.
Marshalls has been voted in the top three of 'Britain's Most Admired Companies' for Community and Environmental Responsibility, joining BSkyB and Marks & Spencer, as well as coming top of the Most Admired league table 2007 in the Building Materials & Merchants sector.

Business magazine, Management Today's Most Admired list measures Britain's leading 220 companies in such areas as quality of management, capacity to innovate and value as a long-term investment and demonstrates how the 10 largest public companies in each sector rated their nine rivals.

Chris Harrop, group marketing director at Marshalls, said the company was delighted to have measured up against the likes of BSkyB and Marks & Spencer in the Community and Environmental Responsibility category.

The company finished ahead of other businesses such as the Co-operative Bank and Land Securities.

He said: "This is a great result for Marshalls. This award is great recognition by our peers that our work in this field is truly valued."

In 2007, Marshalls launched the first carbon calculator in the hard landscaping sector and joined the Carbon Trust scheme to carbon label its domestic products.

Marshalls was voted as Britain's 12th most admired company – up from 52nd in 2006.

It also topped its own building materials and merchants category ahead of SIG, Travis Perkins, BSS and Hanson.

The win comes comes just a week after Marshalls' National Gold Award at the International Green Apple Awards 2007 for Environmental Best Practice.

The Company was highly commended for its biodiversity work at one of its quarrying and manufacturing facilities.
