Working towards national energy targets set by the EU committee, localised awards for energy usage and consumption take our nation one step closer to meeting our objectives.
Energy - achievements & progress in reducing carbon emissions and by promoting renewable energy and efficiency.
Innovation - new and innovative ways of improving corporate sustainability in both products & business trading activities.
Resources - improved efficiency measurements including energy consumption, resource usage, use of sustainable and/or recycled materials and water wastage.
Job Creation - new careers and jobs created as a direct result of sustainable environment operations.
Environmental sustainability is fundamentally important for the packaging industry, particularly those in the polythene, plastics and carrier bag industries. With evident pressure from consumers as well as pressure groups and organisations, polythene manufacturers are often under scrutiny from passionate environmentalists.
James Woolard, Managing Director at Polythene UK said:
"We take our corporate social responsibility very seriously. Naturally, our company withstands significant pressure from local authorities implementing government policy. We aim to be part of the increasing efforts to meet national and global energy targets and partaking in the Oxfordshire Business Awards in 2013 will take us one step closer to realising this."
The judging takes place in June, with initial judging visits taking place in April. The award will be delivered at the Oxford Thames Four Pillars Hotel.
