Named Environmental Business of the Year 2011 by Gloucestershire Media
Published: 7th October 2011
We are very excited to announce that we have been crowned Environmental Business of the Year at the Gloucestershire Media Business Awards 2011. The award is in recognition of our commitment to hydro power, allowing us to produce and market our natural stone products as the lowest carbon rated stone in the UK cheap levitra.
Sponsored by Gloucestershire County Council, the award was presented by the leader of Gloucestershire County Council, Mark Hawthorne.
Congratulations also to runner’s up, Complete Utilities Ltd and Creed Foodservice.
Now in its 14th year, over 600 people attended the gala event at The Centaur at Cheltenham racecourse, now the largest of its type in the country.
Long-term, the success of our hydro scheme is to be qualified by a PAS 2050 certification – measuring the Greenhouse Gas emissions (GHG) of a product or service. Between 17th December 2010 (switch-on) and 17th December 2011, the hydro generation turbine is under consistent monitoring as part of the official Environmental Audit. This certification will then underpin the statement that Forest Pennant produces the ‘greenest’ stone in the UK.
