Search is on for the greenest business

Applications for the 15th annual Vision in Business for the Environment of Scotland (VIBES) Awards are now open.

And businesses in Aberdeenshire are now being encouraged to enter the search for Scotland’s greenest business.

The VIBES Awards is Scotland’s leading environmental awards scheme, recognising businesses that contribute to Scotland’s sustainable development through improving process or developing new products and services.

The awards are free to enter and entries can be submitted until July11.

The awards aim to encourage efficient use of resources, enhance business competitiveness, improve environmental performance and support wider sustainable development goals.

There are seven awards categories open for entry: Management, Environmental Product or Service, Transport, Co-operation, Hydro-Nation, Circular Economy and Micro Business.

Gillian Bruce, chair of VIBES, commented: “We want to continue to encourage the great work being done by so many businesses that are working to make Scotland more environmentally aware and would be very keen to hear from businesses in Aberdeenshire.”
