The Traf­ford Col­lege Ap­pren­tice­ship Award and Green Busi­ness Award This new award is open to all busi­nesses in Traf­ford, re­gard­less of size or sec­tor, that can demon­strate their com­mit­ment to ap­pren­tice­ships and the benefits that the ap­pren­tice­ship scheme have brought to the busi­ness and/or the ap­pren­tices. Please note this cat­e­gory re­lates to the gov­ern­ment funded and reg­u­lated Ap­pren­tice­ship scheme, de­liv­ered by con­tracted and ap­proved train­ing providers. Green Busi­ness Award This award cel­e­brates ex­cel­lence in green prac­tice, strat­egy and prod- ucts. Has your busi­ness ap­plied en­vi­ron­men­tal poli­cies in the work­place? Do your prod­ucts or ser­vices make a pos­i­tive con­tri­bu­tion to the en­v­i­ron- ment? Have you re­duced your car­bon foot­print? This cat­e­gory recog­nises a lo­cal busi­ness that shows ev­i­dence of a green ethos which has a com­mer­cial re­turn for the busi­ness.
