Greenwood Plants has been named ‘Sustainable Business of the Year’ at the 2022 Central South Business Awards, held at the prestigious Ageas Bowl in Southampton on 28th September.
The awards ceremony was hosted by star of ITV’s hit show The Chase, Paul Sinha, and recognised the outstanding achievements of the region’s business community.
The ‘Sustainable Business of the Year’ award recognises the pioneering sustainability practices that Greenwood has established across its business, exercising responsible planetary stewardship, and demonstrating sustainability leadership by applying innovative processes and techniques to minimise its imprint on the planet.
“We are delighted to win the Sustainable Business of the Year award as it shows appreciation for the hard work and determination that we have demonstrated across our nurseries as we strive to become carbon neutral”, explains Sales and Marketing Director, Melanie Asker. “Sustainability is one of our brand values and the G Team have embraced their role in contributing to our sustainability goals.”
Over the past year, Greenwood launched its new sustainability strategy and initiated several practices to use resources efficiently, reduce waste, encourage biodiversity, and improve its carbon footprint - such as switching diesel forklifts and other vehicles to electric, reducing waste, recycling water, and using biodegradable sundries.
