The awards ceremony, which took place at the InterContinental Dublin Hotel, saw 400 representatives from leading businesses, organisations and community groups come together to recognise excellence in recycling, energy and waste management.
Leading the congratulations was Minister for Communications, Climate Action and Environment Mr Denis Naughten who said ‘ am delighted to be here tonight to acknowledge the excellence in environmental and sustainability efforts from such a variety of companies and industries.’
The Pakman Awards is an excellent initiative and seeing the development and success of the event year on year brings great hope and optimism for the future of recycling in Ireland. I strongly commend Repak for continuing to recognise and reward this success’.
