Green Apple Success for Queen Margaret University

Queen Margaret University (QMU) has won recognition for its environmental efforts, collecting a Silver Award at the National Green Apple Awards which took place at Edinburgh Castle (10th September 2012).

 
PRLog - Sep. 11, 2012 - Staff from QMU attended the prestigious ceremony together with 35 other Scottish winners, hosted by The Green Organisation, which has run the award scheme with the support of the Royal Environmental Health Institute of Scotland.

The UK Green Apple Awards were launched in 1994, but this is the first time there has been a separate event for Scotland.  Winning is restricted to companies, councils and communities that can demonstrate the effective measures they have introduced for environmental benefit.

Green Organisation spokesman Karl Tullett explained: “We were attracting more and more interest from all across Scotland, but the recession was making it difficult for winners to justify the time and expense of coming to London for the annual presentation ceremony in the House of Commons – so we have brought the event to them.”

All of the  finalists will be further assessed for the prospect of representing Scotland in the European Business Awards for the Environment, as the Green Apple Awards is one of the few British campaigns chosen as an RSA-accredited feeder scheme into the Brussels-led competition.

Winners also have the chance to engage with the UK Green Apple Awards and the chance of further recognition and reward at the House of Commons.
