A West Loth­ian firm has been named a fi­nal­ist in the Euro­pean Busi­ness Awards for the En­vi­ron­ment.

Liv­ingston-based Pater­son Ar­ran has been named as one of two Bri­tish com­pa­nies short­listed for the pres­ti­gious ac­co­lade. The award recog­nises busi­nesses demon­strat­ing out­stand­ing ef­fort and com­mit­ment to sus­tain­able and en­vi­ron­men­tal­lyfriendly devel­op­ment. With a se­lec­tion of 22 com­pa­nies f rom nine Euro­pean coun­tries named as fi­nal­ists, Pater­son Ar­ran will be vy­ing for the top prize within the man­age­ment cat­e­gory, which will be an­nounced at the highly- an­tic­i­pated award cer­e­mony in Vi­enna on Novem­ber 14.

It’s not the first time that Pater­son Ar­ran has been hailed for its en­vi­ron­men­tal sus­tain­abil­ity. The busi­ness has been awarded and sub­se­quently re­tained the ISO 14001 ac­cred­i­ta­tion for en­vi­ron­men­tal man­age­ment since 2009 and has been crowned win­ners of the 2017 Vi­sion in Busi­ness for the En­vi­ron­ment of Scot­land ( VIBES) awards for sus­tain­able prac­tice and liv­ing.

Adam Wil­son, tech­ni­cal man­ager at Pater­son Ar­ran, said: “We are de­lighted to make it through to the fi­nal of this year’s Euro­pean Busi­ness Awards for the En­vi­ron­ment. We have re­duced our en­vi­ron­men­tal im­pact each year since first f o rmal­is­ing an En­vi­ron­men­tal Man­age­ment Sys­tem (EMS) in 2009. This nom­i­na­tion is tes­ta­ment to the hard work of all of our em­ploy­ees in con­tribut­ing to the suc­cess of our EMS and the de­liv­ery of our com­pre h e n s i v e En­vi­ron­men­tal Tar­gets Pro­gramme.”
