Kyocera calls for entries to its annual GreenLight environmental awards

Awards recognise those solving business environmental challenges in the UK

11 January 2007

Kyocera, the pioneering printer and copier manufacturer, today called for entries into the second annual GreenLight Environmental Awards. The awards will recognise individuals and organisations that have been instrumental in identifying and meeting an environmental challenge associated with their business and/or promoting public awareness, understanding and active concern for the enhancement and protection of the environment. There are four awards categories: public sector, private sector company below 50 employees and private sector company above 50 employees, and IT channel company*. The awards will be judged by a distinguished panel including Adrian Harding, Policy Advisor, Producer Responsibility, Environment Agency; Nita Patel, Environmental Manager, Barclays Bank Plc and James Goulding, Editor of Business Info magazine.

Last year’s awards saw a raft of entries from across the business spectrum. Pat Pascoe, Relationship Marketing Manager at Kyocera and head of the company’s Green Card Programme comments: “We were delighted with the standard of entries for last year’s awards. They clearly demonstrated the excellent work that is going on within the business arena in terms of actively reducing waste and minimising environmental impact. We are looking forward to learning about more new and innovative projects.”

Last year’s award winners were Barclays Bank, for the development of a rare wildlife habitat on the roof of the company’s new headquarters in Canary Wharf; North Glamorgan NHS Trust for its sustainability strategy; and Office2Office for its “Green Guide” environmental office products catalogue.

The 2007 awards will be presented at Kyocera’s annual Green Card conference which will be held at Earl’s Court in London on 12th June 2007.

Nominations are invited from individuals and organisations and the awards are open to members and non-members of the Green Card Network within each of the four classifications. To enter the awards, organisations should visit http://www.thegreencard.org.uk/pages/connectivity/greenlightawards.asp and complete the entry form. The awards are free to enter and the closing date for entries is April 3rd 2007.
