Peel Tech wins at this year's VIBES award ceremony

Wednesday, 21 November 2018

Peel Tech Ltd in Ballingry, Fife was one of 10 companies rewarded for their commitment to sustainability at this year’s VIBES – Scottish Environment Business Awards.

The company collected the Micro Business award at the ceremony held at the Radisson Blu in Glasgow for its revolutionary filtration system which helps those in the food processing industry remain complaint regarding their draining pollution. 

This is the second time the company has been awarded for its sustainability, having picked up the Hydronation Award at the 2014 VIBES ceremony. 

The announcement follows a rigorous judging process, where each of the 43 finalists were visited by a team of judges to assess their environmental processes. 

Malcolm Wood, Director at Peel Tech, said: “We are proud to have been recognised at this year’s VIBES – Scottish Environment Business Awards in the Environmental product or service.  Collecting a VIBES Award is a real testament to the hard work and commitment from everyone at Peel Tech towards reducing our impact on the environment and we are proud to take our place amongst many excellent companies working hard to deliver a sustainable future. 

“The Awards are a fantastic way to find out about what other businesses are doing and share best practice amongst a like-minded community that too want to improve their operations while benefitting the environment and it is hoped that others are inspired to follow suit.”

The 10 businesses awarded, which represent a range of sectors and sizes, demonstrated challenging their everyday working practices to embrace the economic opportunity of sustainability with all reaping the wider associated benefits including increased resource efficiency, resilience, competitiveness as well as a positive working culture. 

The awards also demonstrated how even small changes can have a big difference, for example adopting active travel practices that reduce both reliance on cars and carbon emissions to implementing management programmes that empower staff to make more sustainable choices.    

Each of the 2018 VIBES - Scottish Environment Business Awards winners is now eligible to enter the next European Business Awards for the Environment (EBAE) which is open to winners and runners up of RSA Accredited award schemes. VIBES is the only Scottish based RSA Accredited award scheme.
