Shetland Times Printing was presented with “Gold for Media” in the Green Apple Environment Awards at the Tower of London recently. One of the major international environmental awards schemes, and a feeder into the European Awards, the Green Apple Awards are now in their sixteenth year and attracted more than 500 nominations this year.
They are organised by The Green Organisation, an independent, non-political, non-activist, non-profit environment group dedicated to recognising, rewarding and promoting environmental best practice around the world. 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.
Other recent awards include Keep Scotland Beautiful Tidy Business Standard Silver Award 2010 & 2011 and the Shetland Environmental Award 2009 – demonstrating sustainability, innovation and best practice in the conservation and enhancement of Shetland’s environment.
