Nowadays we all recognise how important it is to do our bit for the environment. All you need to do is turn on the news or take a browse on the Internet to see the threats our planet faces. Because of this, all companies almost have a duty to take steps in order to reduce their carbon footprints. This is why many have a green policy in place. Not only are they doing their bit to help, but they are improving their brand image in the process too. Keeping that in mind, in this post we are going to take a look at the upcoming Greenest County Awards.
These awards are designed to recognised companies, education establishments, organisations, community projects and charities in Essex that have gone that extra mile to improve environmental performance and reduce carbon footprint. There are ten different categories at the Greenest County Awards. Lets take a look at them in further detail below
