Green Logo CMYKBusinesses of all shapes and sizes are now being invited to enter the 2009 Northwest Business Environment Awards.

They can nominate themselves, via a simple application entry form, in one or more of the following award categories:

  • Best Environmental Practice (products and service)
  • Built Environment
  • Sustainable Procurement
  • Environmental Innovation and Environmental Champions.

The awards are a great way to let customers and staff hear about your hard work. Winning an award can help raise profiles and boost reputations as well as gaining recognition from the high-profile media and marketing campaign.

Previous finalists have all cited the awards as a great opportunity to demonstrate their green credentials.

Entry to the awards is free and easy, and I have taken the liberty of attaching the entries forms. Entry can be made online at the Mersey Basin website.

peter-wins.jpgLast week’s Action Against Business Crime Conference held at Nottingham’s East Midlands Conference Centre saw Business Crime Direct‘s General Manager Peter Jones receive two awards.

The first was for the excellent work done by BCD in Liverpool City Centre through their Liverpool Crime Alert project. He is seen here receiving the award from the Lord Dear, Chairman of AABC.

Later in the proceeding Peter received an outstanding achievement award for his work in the crime reduction field over the past 10 years.

Peter said, “I was both astonished and delighted to receive the award. It came completely out of the blue and I’m really chuffed to have received it. However, my work has relied heavily on my team of people and I dedicate this award to them as a thank you for their dedication and for all their help over the years.”
