As part of our working activities we have been lucky enough to be recognised by a number of organisations, who have looked at what we are doing and more importantly how we are doing it and have taken the decision to recognise our working practises by honouring us with their awards.
These awards include:
The Sunday Times
In 2008 JC Atkinson won the Sunday Times small business award for high and medium environmental impact and was further named the overall winner of the Sunday Times ‘Best Green Company’ Award. This award is a national award and covers a large number of market sectors and organisations.
Upon hearing of the award Julian Atkinson, Managing Director of JC Atkinson, said “We are absolutely delighted to have won this award, because it includes our employee’s verdicts on our aims and our achievements. Environmental awareness has been fundamental to our Company’s approach for many years, and we have proved by our continuing success that what is good for a company can be good for the environment too.”
North East Business Awards
In association with Business Link, the North East Business Awards aims to support, highlight and celebrate business success in the region. The corporate Responsibility and Environment award recognises outstanding achievement in how companies behave towards the environment, the local community, their people and supply chain.
The Green Apple Awards
The Green Apple Awards are highly respected in the environmentally aware community. They are administered by ‘The Green Organisation’ which is an independent, non-political, non-activist, non-profit environment group dedicated to recognising, rewarding and promoting environmental best practice around the world.
It is funded by membership and sponsorship, with valuable support from the Environment Agency, the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health, the Chartered Institution of Wastes Management, the Municipal Journal and several other professional bodies.
