Staff in a Bankside office are the first in Southwark to get a gold award for their efforts in minimising waste, recycling and keeping the front of their premises clean and tidy.
Since then, staff have set up recycling schemes for an array of materials: from paper and cardboard to postage stamps, batteries, plastic cups and even CDs.
Information and guidance on recycling is available on the bank's intranet and messages encouraging recycling cover the office walls.
Andrew Lestrange from Lloyds TSB said: "We take all environmental issues very seriously and we're delighted to have been recognised by Southwark Council for the work we have been doing in this area. It has been incredibly rewarding to work with the council towards achieving these goals, and we hope to continue making a contribution to the community in this way."
Cllr Richard Thomas, Southwark Council's executive member for environment and transport, added: "It's great to see a business putting in place so many practical steps to help the environment. Businesses have a huge role to play in helping us make Southwark cleaner and greener and we hope many more will sign up to the scheme."
The awards scheme was piloted in the Bankside area but is now open to businesses borough wide.
