I’m sure you’re all aware that the 83rd Academy Awards will take place this Sunday, with the great and the good of Hollywood in all their finery, and homegrown talent hotly tipped to walk away with the top honours.
But forget the super-egos of the L.A. elite and the over-valued golden statuette, it’s the razzle-dazzle of the Green Oscars we’re getting all excited about here at Jacob Bailey!
We’re very proud to announce that we’ve been shortlisted for a Creating the Greenest County (CtGC) Award in the ‘Business Culture’ category at this year’s event.
We won our place on the shortlist for our work with the Suffolk Carbon Charter, a full commitment to ISO 14001 and continued investment in further green initiatives. We’ve probably made less impact on the planet this year than the fleet of hummers ticking over outside the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel on Oscar night!
We are one of many businesses actively responding to climate change and environmental issues. Our environmental policy commits us to steering both our own companies and the Direct Response industry into a sustainable future by reducing the effects of our business and our sector on the planet.
The CtGC Awards are now in their 4th year and continue to go from strength to strength. Previous winners include: National Express East Anglia, University Campus Suffolk, BT, BBC Radio Suffolk and the Port of Felixstowe.
The winners will be announced at a glittering event (environmentally friendly of course) on Thursday 24th March 2011 at Wherstead Park.
Wish us luck!
Update: We took the Silver medal on the night – runners-up to the Port of Felixstowe – congratulations!
