Last night LEGOLAND Windsor Resort was announced as the winner of the Green Progress Award at the Thames Valley Business Magazine Awards 2015. The winners were revealed at a stylish ceremony at the Royal Berkshire Conference Centre, at the Madejski Stadium, in Reading.
The Awards, now in their twenty-first year, were hosted by award-winning journalist Nadine Dereza, alongside guest speaker Huw Edwards, broadcaster and anchor of the BBC Ten O’Clock News.
The Green Progress Award, sponsored by Grundon Waste Management for the fourth year running, was open to all companies and organisations of any size that are based in the Thames Valley and that have been operating for at least one full year. The award recognises organisations that have demonstrated progress in integrating environmental, social, economic responsibility and leadership into their business. The judges were looking for the entrants to show that were doing something over and above their business needs.
Clayton Sullivan-Webb, managing director of Grundon, joined Nadine Dereza and Huw Edwards on stage to present the award, commenting: “Once again the judges found it a challenge to select a winner from the four finalists, all of whom would have been worthy winners. Each of them impressed the judges with the progress they have made during the last 12 months in becoming greener and more sustainable, with each having to overcome their own unique challenges.
“Our judges were ultimately impressed by the progress LEGOLAND Windsor Resort had made in their innovation, sustainability and employee engagement.”
