Oakland Care CEO Joanne Balmer named ESG Champion

Oakland Care CEO Joanne Balmer BEM has been named ESG Champion at HealthInvestor’s Power Fifty Awards.

Joanne was named the inaugural winner of the newly introduced ESG Champion award for demonstrating exemplary commitment to delivering positive change on environmental, social, and governance issues in the sector.

Since joining Oakland in August 2019, Joanne has navigated the provider through the COVID-19 pandemic and driven Oakland's sustainability agenda. She received a British Empire Medal in the 2021 Queen’s Birthday Honours List for her services to social care.

Joanne has pioneered Oakland’s position as the sector’s sustainability leader, retaining the providers status as the only carbon neutral care group in the UK for the second year running and achieving Level 3 certification by Green Mark, the highest grade awarded by the sustainability specialists.

Reflecting on her win, Joanne Balmer BEM said: “I am extremely honoured to receive this award which represents not only a huge personal success, but is also a testament to the industry-leading efforts of all those I work alongside at Oakland Care.

“As I reflect on my journey, I am proud we have shown what is possible for care homes across the country. Whether that be for the people who work in social care, residents we support, or even the real contribution we can make towards wider global issues. At Oakland Care we are committed to pushing the boundaries of what is possible on environmental, social and governance issues, and I look forward to maintaining Oakland Care’s position as an influential leader on these topics.”
