SpaceVac Technologies Ltd has won a Green Apple Environment Award in the national campaign to find Britain's greenest companies, councils and communities. The company competed against more than 500 other nominations and has been presented with its Green Apple Award at a ceremony in the Houses of Parliament.
As a result of this success it will have its winning paper published in The Green Book, an international reference work on environmental best practice, so that others around the world can follow its example and learn from SpaceVac's experience. It is now being considered to represent the UK in the European Business Awards for the Environment.
The Green Apple Awards began in 1994 and are organised by The Green Organisation, an independent, non-political, non-activist, non-profit environment group dedicated to recognising and promoting environmental best practice. Judges for the Green Apple Awards are drawn from the Environment Agency, the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health, the Chartered Institution for Wastes Management, and other independent bodies.
