BIZERBA UK have won the BRONZE Environment Award in the national campaign to find the greenest individuals, companies, councils and communities.
They competed against more than 800 other nominations in the Green Apple Awards for Environmental Best Practice with their project, ENERGY EFFICIENT CUTTING.
They were presented with their trophy and certificate at a glittering presentation ceremony hosted by Liz Kendall MP at the Houses of Parliament on November 12th, 2018.
The judges commented:
“This company has a long-standing philosophy of adding efficiency to their machines as the products develop and evolve. While their meat slicers are cutting-edge, their power consumption is half that of most machines on the market, saving small businesses and the environment.”
As a result of this Green Apple Award success, they have been invited to have their winning paper published in The Green Book, the leading international work of reference on environmental best practice, so that others around the world can follow their example and learn from their achievement. They could also progress to represent their country in the Green World Awards 2019 and have 100 trees planted in their name as part of the United Nations Billion Trees initiative.
The Green Apple Awards began in 1994 and have become established as the country’s major recognition for environmental endeavour among companies, councils, communities and countries.
The awards are organised by The Green Organisation - an international, independent, non-political, non-profit environment group dedicated to recognising, rewarding and promoting environmental best practice around the world.
The Green Apple Awards are supported by the Environment Agency, the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health, the Chartered Institution for Wastes Management, REHIS and other independent bodies.
