The independent voice of the global moving industry


Global award success for Burke Bros Moving Group

Dec 28, 2016
Burke Bros Moving Group fought off competition from around the world to achieve a global award for a sustained commitment to environmental responsibility and ecological awareness.

Managing Director Gary Burke was presented with the Juan Peralta Ecology Award by the Pan American International Movers Association (PAIMA) at its conference in New Orleans last October. The company represented the European nomination at the conference, fighting off competition from delegates representing more than 40 countries from all five continents, and was presented with the overall award for the most outstanding environmental performance within the moving industry.

Burke Bros Moving Group has maintained a record of recycling 100% of reusable materials without any waste going to landfill. The moving company has implemented a waste management system, working in collaboration with ACM Environmental PLC, to ensure the procedure is environmentally and legally compliant.

Upon receiving the award, Gary Burke said, “We’re incredibly pleased that our work has been recognised through this award. It was a real pleasure to receive congratulations from all corners of the world at the PAIMA conference. We take our commitment to environmental issues seriously and work to set the benchmark for competitors in the sector. Importantly, the waste management processes we have implemented are sustainable for the future.”

Burke Bros Moving Group is no stranger to winning awards, having also been the overall winner of the Juan Peralta Ecological Award in San Francisco in 2006, for the best contribution from a moving company on global environmental issues and recipient of the ‘Service Provider of the Year’ award for 2013-2014, from the Black Country Chamber of Commerce.
