eibe Play is to be honoured as Green World Ambassadors for the second time at a special ceremony in the Houses of Parliament in November 2015.
The recognition comes as a result of the environmental success of the company’s diverse Sport England-Primary Spaces Project which won a Green Apple Environment Award, presented in London recently.
As a result of that success, eibe was invited to have its winning paper published in The Green Book, the world’s only annual work of reference on environmental best practice that is distributed to environment professionals, universities and libraries around the world by The Green Organisation.
The award judges commented:
“Aiming to transform over 600 Schools’ play provisions, eibe Play and their usual team of installers and sub-contractors, were chosen as the right team to head the project. Most Primary Schools have very little play area and the Primary Spaces fund has culminated in over quarter of a million pounds worth of revenue to provide bright new playgrounds, resurfacing, netting, wall mounts and floor markings, to utilise every inch of space available. Eventually, £150million worth of sporting equipment and facilities will be available to many, developing a sporting habit for life.”
eibe’s winning paper now goes forward for further judging and the possibility of representing the UK in the Brussels-led European Business Awards for the Environment.
Paul Redden is proud of eibe’s environmental roots:
“The Green World Ambassador status is one we embrace and utilise fully. From sustainable manufacturing to partnering with like-minded businesses, we will continue to invest in our Corporate Social Responsibilities in the years ahead.”
