Burnt Tree Vehicle Rental has recently been honoured as an International Green World Ambassador at a special ceremony at The Crystal, London. This recognition comes as a result of the environmental success of the company’s Revive & Reduce Project, which won a Green Apple Environment Award, presented at The House of Commons last November.
As a result of that success, Burnt Tree Vehicle Rental was invited to have its winning paper published in The Green Book, the world’s only annual work of reference on environmental best practice that is distributed to environment professionals, universities and libraries around the world by The Green Organisation.
The award judges commented: “Burnt Tree’s environmental energies have been spent in the body shop – reducing waste, including steel and plastic, and reducing the VOCs emitted to air. A policy of repairing instead of replacing body panels resulted in 95% being recycled. Total waste has been reduced by 32% and VOCs are down by more than 37%.”
The winning paper now goes forward for further judging and the possibility of representing the UK in the Brussels-led European Business Awards for the Environment.
The Green Apple Awards are one of the few environmental schemes in Britain that have official status to act as an automatic feeder scheme into the European campaign.
