Finalists in the European Business Awards for the Environment!

Well – we’re going to have to make some more space on our walls as we’ve got another certificate to put up!

Yep, our Eilidh was over in Lyon last night at the EU’s prestigious Environmental awards where we were representing the UK.  Back in May we heard we were among 10 finalists being put forward to the European Business Awards for the Environment. Then in October we found out the exciting news that together with our good friends The Bay Fish and Chips , we had been selected to represent the UK!

There were 17 finalists coming from 9 countries and last  night the winners were announced at the ceremony at the Pollutec exhibition of environmental technologies in Lyon, France.

Unfortunately – we didn’t win, but to even have been shortlisted was a fantastic achievement at such a prestigious event and we were delighted to have been selected to represent the UK.

European Commissioner for the Environment Janez Potočnik said: “The companies shortlisted for the European Business Awards for the Environment have a proven track record in combining business success and respect for the environment. They showcase real-world experience of the fruits of eco-innovation.”  We think so too!
