Investors in the Environment Awards 2012

Over 30 Peterborough businesses gathered at 2012’s Investors in the Environment (IiE) Awards Ceremony to receive their well earned awards.
Cllr Marco Cereste, who helped launch the scheme in 2010, kindly joined in to celebrate the achievements of local businesses, along with renewable specialist Jonathan Selwyn (Lark Energy) and other VIP guests. The celebration highlighted IiE members’ achievements and how IiE has helped businesses reduce their environmental impact and save money.

The IiE scheme is in its 3rd year and has worked hard to help businesses become more sustainable. There are now over 700 businesses pledging to be greener on the IiE scheme and over 100 of them are working towards, if not already achieved, the environmental green accreditation.
The Awards ceremony highlighted the success of another year and local businesses were awarded either the Bronze, Silver, Green or Great Green Star Awards.

Bronze and Silver award winners included Olsen Partnership, Athene Communications and Hunt & Coombs Solicitors. After a successful year of increasing their green achievements, Inspired to Change, Change Agents UK, Coca Cola, Cambridgeshire Police Force and Smiths Nissan & Renault were amongst the 23 Green Award winners.

Nine businesses made exceptional reductions to their environmental impact and were awarded the Great Green Star Award. These businesses included Anne Corder Recruitment, the Environment Agency, Peterborough City Council, IKEA and Queensgate Shopping Centre.

Peterborough Regional College received the Overall Outstanding Achievement Award after reducing their water by 17.5% and reducing their waste by 23% since 2009. They have also reduced their carbon footprint by planting numerous trees and have 60 square meters of Solar PV installed.
