As Bristol’s year as European Green Capital comes to a close, businesses and organisations in the West of England will be rewarded for their efforts in driving environmental sustainability in the work place at the Go Green Awards on the 18th of February.
Go Green was launched in February last year and is a collaboration between business leadership organisations Business West and Low Carbon South West.
The initiative was put in place to signpost organisations to resources that can help them be greener and recognise the efforts made to create a greener environment at work.
The ceremony will be held at The Bristol hotel and will feature 13 awards across the five themes of Go Green which include Energy & Efficiency; Travel & Transport; Planning & Resilience, to prepare for future changes; Sustainable Sourcing; and Happy & Healthy to encourage community spirit.
The ceremony will also feature ‘The Driving Force Award’ to acknowledge a team or individual who has made the biggest impact and ‘Bristol’s Best Green Small Business Award’ to recognise the SME who has most improved its green credentials across the five themes.
Amy Nicholass, Go Green Manager, said: “We launched Go Green because we realised we needed an engaging programme for businesses to improve their sustainable credentials.
“Becoming European Green Capital 2015 was a great achievement for Bristol and we really wanted to involve everyone in order to promote the city’s values and efforts in the work place.”
