Firm in line for ‘green’ ac­co­lade

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - UK & World Update -

A HUNT­ING­DON man­u­fac­tur­ing firm has been short­listed in the fi­nals of the re­gional Busi­ness in the Com­mu­nity Car­bon Pos­i­tive Awards.

GPS PE Pipe Sys­tems is one of the sev­eral East Anglian busi­nesses vy­ing for the award, which will be an­nounced later this month at a cer­e­mony at Hen­grave Hall in Bury St. Ed­munds.

The an­nual awards, run in as­so­ci­a­tion with the Fi­nan­cial Times, recog­nises those com­pa­nies who strive to re­duce their car­bon foot­print.

To qual­ify for the fi­nal, GPS has demon­strated im­pres­sive re­sults from its ef­forts to re­duce en­ergy us­age - cut­ting elec­tric use by a fifth last year - plus re­duc­ing waste con­sump­tion and im­prove re­cy­cling.
