City of London cloud and virtualisation services provider Intercept IT has won a Clean City environmental award for the third consecutive year, as one of eight businesses in the area to take home one of the Clean City 2011 Platinum prizes for small sites.
According to a statement from Intercept IT, it won for its "commitment to reducing waste and promoting recycling", efforts to minimise paper use with so-called follow-me printing, spot recycling bin checks and work with suppliers to reduce waste.
"Inspections were carried out by Clean City Awards scheme officers to assess waste management practices, including waste minimisation, reuse and recycling initiatives. A panel of judges decided the winners," it said.
Intercept IT's office administrator Elisabeth Stables (pictured, on left) and financial controller Gemma Tucker (right) received the award from the chairman of Port Health and Environmental Services, John Tomlinson, at a ceremony in February.
Some 1,600 sites participated in the Clean City 2011 awards scheme. The five judges hailed from the Port Health and Environmental Services Committee, AEA Technology, Keep Britain Tidy and the Chartered Institution of Wastes Management (CIWM).
Launched in 1994, the Clean City scheme aims to raise the profile of responsible waste management as well as recognising and rewarding good practice by encouraging City businesses to reduce, reuse and recycle.
