Sustainability and entrepreneurship are two very important elements of the strategic and operational vision of Carlton Forest Group, and both have been recognised on a national platform in 2022.

Our CEO, Mark Pepper, and founder of the business was recognised as one of the top 50 LDC Most Ambitious Business Leaders for 2022.

Mark was recognised after seeing off over 750 other nominees, a record number proving that ambition is alive and well despite the challenges faced by increasing economic uncertainty.

The programme, which is supported by The Times and now in its fifth year, celebrates the inspiring leaders behind some of the UK’s most successful and fast-growing medium-sized firms.

And, at the subsequent awards dinner to celebrate the achievements of the Top 50, Mark also received The Sustainable Ambition Award which recognises the business leader who has created a company that is driven to contribute towards a more sustainable future.

LDC’s John Garner said: “There has never been a more important time to recognise a business putting sustainability at the heart of its strategy. Mark is passionate about contributing to the net zero agenda and I’d like to applaud him on this award win.

“Those featured in The Top 50 this year are a real source of inspiration; they prove that great things can be achieved even when times get tough. Having backed the ambitions of British businesses for more than 40 years, we know just how important it is to celebrate the people who are driving companies forward, generating growth and creating jobs.

“I’d like to congratulate all of The Top 50 for 2022, especially our award winners! They demonstrate the positive impact of ambition and show exactly what British business leaders are made of.”

Mark Pepper, CEO of Carlton Forest Group, added: “What an amazing accolade to be given and I feel truly humbled to accept this for the entire Carlton Forest team who work so hard to bring my vision to life. I am excited to see what the future holds, and to continue making an impact on the sustainability of businesses in a variety of ways.”
