Good VIBES: awards help recognise Environmental good practice24 June 2021
Scottish Water is delighted to support the awards
Simon Parsons, Director of Strategic Customer and Service Planning, will participate in the judging panel for the awards.
VIBES is a strategic partnership between Scottish Environment Protection Agency, Scottish Government, Scottish Enterprise, South of Scotland Enterprise, Highland and Islands Enterprise, Scottish Water, Zero Waste Scotland, Energy Saving Trust and NatureScot. The Awards are further supported by CBI Scotland, the Institute of Directors, the Federation of Small Businesses, Bright Green Business, Scottish Council for Development and Industry and Scotch Whisky Association.
Past VIBES winners have used sustainable, innovative methods and ideas to achieve better environmental performance. They have made gains via circular economy or met their low waste, or even zero waste, goals and include inventors of clean technology. Winners have pioneered behavioural change within industry and shown that collaboration and inclusive working can solve environmental problems and boost business.
In the year that COP is coming to Scotland the 2021 Awards will highlight the commitment, progress, and actions of businesses towards achieving net zero carbon emissions.
Applications are open until 30 July. Entries are free and good practice and outstanding achievement will be recognised via awards and promotion of case studies. All applicants will receive feedback, guidance, and signpost to free help from Government agencies in relation to further environmental improvement.
