Celebrating environmental successes

  • Our QA team, Ann and Steven, with respected environmental campaigner, Tony Juniper (centre)

At BigFish Brand, we’re pleased and proud to be one of a small but growing group of independent businesses who have achieved Investors in the Environment status in the Yorkshire and Humber region. Our Quality Manager Ann and QA Assistant, Steven, recently attended an event in Leeds to celebrate this success. Ann penned a quick blog for us about the event.

She says; "This was a really interesting event and a chance to meet other Investors in the Environment (IiE) award winners and discuss our environmental challenges and successes.  We also met green campaigner, Tony Juniper CBE.  His lively and informative presentation underlined the global challenges in relation to population, economic, energy use and sources of the last two decades, reminding us all how urgent it is that we continue to change and improve the way we live and work to support a sustainable environment.

“Of course, Grimsby is now the UK’s ‘Renewable Energy Capital’ and it is great that two local businesses, ourselves and Freshney Place, are doing our bit through the IiE scheme to contribute to our town’s green credentials.

Thanks to the IiE team for an informative afternoon and all the ideas it generated.  We look forward to putting some of them into action in our own business as we continue to work on our environmental status and improve our Investors in the Environment status.”
