Northwest companies that are making environmental excellence part of their business success can now enter the Northwest Business Environment Awards 2010.
Now in its eighth successive year, the Northwest Business Environment Awards is searching for the green business heroes of 2010 across companies both large and small, including entrepreneurs and new start-ups. Deadline for entries to the Northwest Business Environment Awards 2010 is May 14th.
Businesses from across Cumbria, Lancashire, Greater Manchester, Merseyside and Lancashire can enter one or more of the award categories from environmental innovation, built environment, best environmental practice to media and communication, and environmental leadership.
In acknowledgment of the region’s work to reduce its carbon footprint, there is an extra award for 2010 to highlight companies that can demonstrate real results toward combating climate change either through mitigation or adaptation. The new Combating Climate Change award is open to all businesses regardless of size, location or service.
Hosted by award-winning environmental business support programme, ENWORKS, the region’s most prestigious green award scheme is backed by the Northwest Regional Development Agency (NWDA), Northwest Business Insider, Environment Agency, Envirolink Northwest, Groundwork Northwest, Institute of Directors and Foundation, the climate fund for the Northwest.
Mark Hughes, Executive Director of Economic Development, Northwest Regional Development Agency (NWDA) said: “Environmental activity within the region has accelerated since the Awards were launched almost a decade ago. Businesses in the region continue to recognise that good environmental procedures, alongside best business practice can foster innovation, leading to commercial success.
“I would encourage any business that is proud of its green credentials to enter these awards.”
Todd Holden, Programme Director, ENWORKS explains why entering the Northwest Business Environment Awards makes good business sense: “The very nature of industry often means we spend little or no time reflecting on past performances and very often our achievements go unnoticed by our peers, and, more importantly, our workplace colleagues. Submitting an application to the Northwest Business Environment Awards is an opportunity to gain recognition for your efforts and could help your business access new green markets. It’s also an opportunity to raise the profile of your business across the Northwest.”
