Recognising how organisations are moving forward with viable environmental and sustainable technology solutions, Futures Supplies and Support Services Ltd, trade suppliers of washroom, janitorial and cleaning products, was up against some stiff National competition when it successfully scooped the 2007 Environmental and Sustainable Technology ‘Green Marketing Award’.
The 2007 EAST Awards, a black tie Gala Dinner event hosted by Lord & Lady Palmer was held in the Cholmondeley Room at the House of Lords, and were open to entries from both the Private and Public sectors and the event brought together environmental leaders and industry providers of products and services to celebrate their environmental innovation and how organisations are moving forward with viable environmental and sustainable technology solutions.
Judged by a panel of senior industry insiders headed by David Lemon, Environment Industries Commission, Futures Supplies was delighted to collect the ‘Green Marketing Award’ in recognition of its successful marketing influence encouraging not only customers, but also suppliers and their local community in the importance of ‘green’ issues.
The company successfully illustrated its environmental contribution in enabling its clients to reduce their environmental impact through product availability and performance, in-house environmental auditing and management along with innovation and customer service.
The judges commented that they had a hard time judging the awards this year as there were so many great sustainable entries and judging from a standard criteria they finally arrived at the justified clear winners in each category.
Tracey Holden of Futures Supplies commented, “This award was important to us because it recognises that the company’s influence over others in relation to environmental issues really matters”.
