MITIE Good Partnership AnnouncedPosted: July 8, 2011
It’s been so so hard to keep quiet about this! But we can finally announce a ground-breaking new partnership between Cyrenians and FTSE 250 firm, MITIE, the strategic outsourcing and energy-services company, to work together in taking forward CORE (Cyrenians Organics Recycling Enterprise)
Our motivation for seeking this partnership was for the CORE social enterprise – operating since 2009 and now in profit – to get the investment and business muscle it needs to survive and thrive in a very competitive and fast changing commercial market place.
CORE now has serious ambitions of being a UK market leader in taking food waste out of harmful landfill and into renewable energy, while generating new work-place opportunities for Cyrenians service users and income for investment in improving lives.
The better CORE does in winning customers and turning waste into an asset, the more benefit to the charity in our twin mission of improving lives and the environment. So if you work for a business or public organisation generating food waste, send your manager in CORE’s direction!
The process of establishing the partnership has demonstrated that both organisations – despite the difference in size and sector – share high standards, strong values and a passion for better futures. We look forward to a long and fruitful partnership with MITIE.
Cyrenians income from the growing CORE will be channeled into our ‘Enterprise to Employment’ programme that Cyrenians has developed over the last year with support from JPMorgan, who have been brilliant supporters, training and supporting people affected by homelessness back into a settled working life.
