More from the Guardian Sustainable Business Award on waste & recycling
On Tuesday night in the Guardian’s Sustainable Business Awards, some people made comments such as ‘another award for InterfaceFLOR’. But I really think this award has special significance.
First, the other contenders are companies who are very good at sustainability, like Marks & Spencer and Veolia, which by the way their core business is waste management.
Second, it came from the Guardian Sustainable Business, a big authority in sustainability for companies which in a short period of life has already 2m readers.
This quote was taken from the Guardian’s press release:
”There was cause for celebration as the winners of the inaugural Guardian Sustainable Business Awards were feted for their contributions in a host of areas ranging from communications to supply chain management.
The awards ceremony at the Guardian’s headquarters included the presentation of the Waste and Recycling award to InterfaceFLOR for their QUEST (Quality Utilizing Employee Suggestions and Teamwork) initiative. The judges felt that InterfaceFLOR were championing a circular economy; going the extra mile to collect waste back from their customers. Their ‘Mission Zero’ pledge to eliminate environmental impacts by 2020, including waste, is eminently replicable, and its efforts to change European legislation through ‘War on Waste’ are inspiring.”
