2013 Environmental Awards made by Enviroglass

 

Eleven Shetland projects have been acknowledged for demonstrating sustainability, innovation and best practice with a Shetland Environmental Award made by Enviroglass.

 

Enviroglass was commissioned by the Shetland Environment Group to produce the awards plaques for the third year in a row.  Enviroglass have yet again created a bespoke plaque with a high recycled content, reflecting the environmental nature of the awards.

Brian Gregson, Chair of the Shetland Environment Group, said: “Over the last three years Enviroglass have created beautiful bespoke awards which have done justice, not only to the work carried out by the award winners but also to the true nature of the awards.”

 

The Awards were presented by Mr David Sigsworth, Chairman of The Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA), and Mr James Curran, Chief Executive of SEPA. As well as presenting the awards to the winning groups, Mr Sigsworth and Curran visited the Enviroglass factory in Cunningsburgh to find out more about this social enterprise.  Following the visit Mr Sigsworth said: “It was great to see an innovative company, working in the community to re-manufacture invaluable materials, making such useful products close to home.”
