Environmentally Friendly Pendlewood Nominated for top award!

Pendlewood are celebrating after once again being shortlisted for a leading business award!

Our long-standing commitment to the environment and running a sustainable, eco-friendly business has been rewarded as our Managing Director Alan Pendlewood has been nominated for the Environmental Champion award at the 2010 Lancashire Business Environment Awards. The awards are organised by Groundwork Pennine, who are the largest environmental charity in Lancashire. A swanky ceremony will be held on the October 21st at Ewood Park, home of Blackburn Rovers FC, where Pendlewood will battle it out with two other innovative, green companies in the hope of being awarded the prestigious title. The Environmental Champion is an award for which Groundworks describe the required criteria as “outstanding performance or influence by an individual who has led by example, encouraging others to become more environmentally aware and put a lot of time and effort into organising environmental projects in your workplace”

Pendlewood will be hoping for their second piece of silverware this year; back in March, in a stunning coup, we were named the 2010 Small Business of the Year at the BIBA’s (Be Inspired Business Awards), an event described by the Chamber of Commerce as the “Oscars of the North-West Business World”. Alan is determined to get the message across that this is a nomination for the company, rather than an individual award though. He explained: “I’m just a representative of the company really. The staff we have here is equally as passionate about the environment as I am and this is credit to everybody at Pendlewood”. Although keen to win again, Alan remains pleased that Pendlewood’s commitment to being environmentally aware has been recognised.  He admitted: “It would be a real thrill for Pendlewood to be crowned Environmental Champions. However, win or not, there is a real delight at being recognised and shortlisted for this award. We have always been passionate about the environment and Pendlewood being regarded as a potential environmental champion feels like a real validation of our efforts.”
