14 is for LinkedIn... We have 114 of our employees LinkedIn with Simons Group's company profile... (A tenuous link, it has to be said, but still, a great figure - especially as it makes up for nearly 70% of our employees!)

15 is for the near 1500 trees planted at the Woodland Trust tree planting event earlier this month. Despite the weather there were smiles all around and with a phenomenal show of team spirit from everyone, we managed to plant the trees in just 3 hours - Meaning that we have offset the carbon emissions of our head office from last year. Each tonne of carbon needs 4 trees to be planted and it takes up to 100 years for the carbon to be fully sequestered as timber. This 'Diamond' woodland has been created to celebrate the Queen's jubilee year and will be comprised of 85,000 trees in total, with Princess Anne planting the final tree on Thursday 12th December. A huge thank you to everyone who helped make the day possible. Back to beginning Next please!

It has also seen Simons being used in several guides for sustainable construction, including BM Tradas guide to certification and M&Ss own case study for Community engagement.

19 is for CCS (well, the news needs to go somewhere!) Cheshire Oaks received a Gold Considerate Constructors award this year, gaining a score of 38/40 during construction. With the new scoring system in place, our site teams have been quick to rise to the challenge, with John Ginnellys team achieving a phenomenal score of 45/50 and a Beyond Compliance certificate.
