Ground Control has been shortlisted for both ‘Sustainable Company’ and ‘Landscape Architecture Studio’ at this year's Pro Landscaper Business Awards. 

Set to take place in Old Billingsgate in London on 19th April 2024, the awards showcase businesses that show good practices in financial stability, staff training and development, supplier relationships, business systems, sustainability, and corporate social responsibility. 

The award submission for Sustainable Company of the Year focused on our credentials and ethos driven by our B Corp status and ‘using business as a force for good’.  

This approach is exemplified in our works at two Environmental Recovery Centres, solidifying plans to become net zero for 2038 with targets validated by the Science Based Target initiative (SBTi), and several operational and personnel schemes that put sustainability at the focus of our business. 

Jason Knights, Managing Director, added: 

Sustainability has always been an important driver for Ground Control as we strive to leave the planet in a better place than we found it. I am incredibly proud of the significant steps taken in validating our road to net zero 2038, and the growth of our portfolio dedicated to nature's recovery.  
Seeing this reflected in being shortlisted for Sustainable Company of the Year is fantastic recognition of all this hard work.

Ground Control is also shortlisted in the Landscape Architecture Studio category in a year that has seen close campaigning collaboration with the Bumblebee Conservation Trust, which resulted in a Silver-Gilt Award at the Chelsea Flower Show and highlighted the importance of Urban Green Space at Green Gains Live 2023.  

On being shortlisted in the Landscape Architecture Studio category, Matt Goddard, Head of Landscape Architecture added:  

Our team is honoured to be shortlisted for Landscape Architecture Studio of the Year. This recognition is not just a testament to the hard work and dedication of our team but also a celebration of our shared passion for creating outdoor spaces that inspire, delight, and enrich lives. 
I must also express my gratitude to our clients, whose trust and vision have allowed us to bring our creative endeavours to life, and to our talented team who I am very proud to work alongside.
