Vision in Business for the Environment of Scotland (VIBES)
The annual VIBES Awards are a highlight on the calendar for businesses that contribute to the environment and the sustainable development of Scotland.
Now in their 18th year, the prestigious Awards are run by a partnership including the Scottish Environmental Protection Agency, Scottish Government, Energy Saving Trust, Scottish Enterprise, Highlands & Islands Enterprise, Scottish Water, Zero Waste Scotland and the 20:20 Climate Group.
Having supported our clients at previous VIBES Awards, we decided it was time to seek recognition for our own achievements! VIBES provides a great opportunity to demonstrate how we are inspiring others and being a catalyst for change. We wanted to share Beyond Green story, showcasing our team’s impact and commitment ‘beyond the office’.
Supporting Green Teams
We were particularly delighted to be shortlisted for the Green Team Award as it recognises ‘the importance of working as a team to deliver environmental improvements’. This is right at the heart of the Beyond Green approach, both internally and in how we support and work with the teams of our clients and partners. As our literature states, we ‘believe collaboration is the way to deliver success’ and we make sure that clients view us as team members rather than consultants.
Micro Businesses making a difference
Being selected as a finalist in the Micro Business Award was a wonderful achievement – it’s a competitive category, where we were pleased to be alongside a wide range of companies achieving great things with less than ten employees.
Achieving success in the VIBES Awards has encouraged us to be more confident in spreading the word about our how we do business – from proposing innovative methods and new tools, to using Sustainable Development Goals to facilitate successful employee engagement.
We’re proud to say that Beyond Green is dedicated to helping organisations become more sustainable, saving you money while reducing your impact on the environment. If this has inspired you, get in touch to find out how we can help your business.
