The Institute is proud to be associated with the Scottish green awards again in 2012

The call for nominations for the annual Scottish green awards, whose sponsors include IEMA, the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) and utility company ScottishPower, has now closed.

The awards are designed to reward and recognise individuals and organisations that have shown initiative in the reduction of their overall carbon/environmental footprint, and can demonstrate that this has had a positive effect on their surroundings and/or a positive commercial impact on their business.

Over the past few months, individuals and organisations throughout Scotland have been nominating candidates for the following categories:

  • Best green small firm (turnover up to £20 million) – sponsored by SEPA.
  • Best green large company (turnover greater than £20 million).
  • Best green community initiative – sponsored by SEPA.
  • Best green campaigner/activist.
  • Best green campaign by a school or youth group – sponsored by ScottishPower.
  • Best green public relations campaign.
  • Best green public service or public sector provision.
  • Most innovative green product.
  • 20/20 carbon reduction award.
  • Outstanding contribution to the Scottish environment – sponsored by ScottishPower.

IEMA has supported the nominations and the ceremony – which is being held on Thursday 4 October 2012 at the Glasgow Science Centre – for several years and is proud to be associated with the event again in 2012.

Martin Baxter, IEMA’s executive director of policy, is also returning as a member of the judging panel for the awards.

The shortlist of the awards will be featured in the September issue of the environmentalist.
