Since 2007 the nursery has phased out spray washings and reduced its spend on pesticides and herbicides by 6 per cent.
The volume of waste produced for landfill from the nursery has been reduced by 61 per cent in just one year, while recycling rates have increased by 200 per cent.
The company is currently working to reduce transport miles, peat usage and energy usage through raising staff awareness and the implementation of new management systems.
Bransford Webbs Plant Company managing director Geoff Caesar said: "As an industry, ornamental horticulture makes an on going positive contribution to reducing our impact on the environment.
"Our product by its very nature is green – it will in its life time absorb carbon, improve the aspect of the area it is planted in, and will, ultimately, improve the quality of the soil.
"Taking care of the environment through its production can be a challenge, but we believe it is one we should rise to."
