eibe Play has embraced the Olympic spirit with a stellar performance at the recent Green Apple Awards in London on Monday August 8.
Our “Ponty Restoration” project received Gold in the Built Environment Leisure category for 2016 overcoming strong competition from various other industry specialists - the Silver went to Citrus Sharp and the Bronze to National Showcaves.
To cap a brilliant day, we were also honoured as International Green World Ambassadors for the second time at the special ceremony held at The Crystal in Docklands, regarded as the most sustainable events venue in the whole of the UK.
This prestigious recognition comes as a result of the environmental success of our “Dinosaur Island” project which won a Green Apple Environment Award at the Houses of Parliament in November last year. Dr Paula Owen of Green Gumption presented eibe’s managing director, Paul Redden, with the trophies and certificates.
As a result of that success, we get our 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:
“As always with eibe, the project was rooted in sustainability and fun - aims which were met and exceeded according to both the council and park visitors.”
