Nominated for a Saltire Society Literary Award in the “History book of the Year” 2016 category, key themes within the book focus on how the effects of the war on Shetland were determined by the islands location and how Shetlanders related the war to their local community as well as to themselves and their families. Shetland, the “Old Rock”, had a deep emotional meaning for them.

Winning a GOLD Shetland Tidy Business award at the recent accreditation ceremony is testimony to our company’s continued commitment to meeting the rigorous national criteria that this award is based upon. Having won Silver awards in 2010 and 2011, this GOLD award is a credit to our workforce for improving standards.

Tidy Business Award is an annual award scheme with three award levels: Bronze, Silver and Gold.

The aim of the scheme is to raise the awareness of local businesses about methods of containment, storage, collection and disposal of their waste, promoting litter or recycling initiatives to the public and schools, enhancing local community environment and to drive up standards in general.

Working for a clean, green, sustainable Shetland, the awards also focus on waste minimisation strategies for local businesses and we are proud to be involved in such initiatives.

Shetland Litho was also invited to join the National Green Heroes, an elite group of environmental achievers who use their experience to help thousands of others – and the environment – around the world.
