Glass Futures has been shortlisted for the Green Business of the Year at the St Helens Borough Business Awards.

The St Helens Brough Business Awards which are sponsored by Paramount Digital, and supported by Glass Futures and Torus are designed to recognise and celebrate the success and accomplishments of businesses from all sectors.

The Green Business of the Year category, sponsored by PLP, recognises businesses that have a commitment to managing their social and environmental obligations.

The winner of this award will be submitted to the British Chambers of Commerce National Business Awards, providing a fantastic opportunity to showcase business achievements on a national scale, which will take place in December.

For this award, judges are looking for businesses that can demonstrate they employ responsible environmental business practices and embedded green culture.  

Glass is under threat as a material. Whilst being infinitely recyclable, manufacturing is still carbon intensive. We need new solutions for different regions across the world because we see glass as an enabler; the material of the future with endless limitless potential.

To be shortlisted is fantastic recognition of Glass Futures’ activities that develop sustainable technologies and approaches. We are continuously horizon scanning with start-ups and SMES to identify new opportunities to assist green technology developments within the industrial sector.

Said Aston Fuller, General Manager at Glass Futures

We have been overwhelmed by the volume and calibre of entries to the Awards, but we have a very strong shortlist and all the businesses and students who entered should be proud of their achievements and successes. We are now excited to see the winners revealed later in the year and bring their stories into the limelight.

Commented Rachel Collins, Head of Business Services at St Helens Chamber

It is fantastic that so many businesses and students across St Helens Borough have achieved so much despite the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.

By celebrating their successes and shining a spotlight on the entrepreneurship and innovation that is happening in our borough, we can inspire the next generation and encourage more businesses to set up or relocate here. Everyone who entered should be proud of the contribution they are making to our community.

Commented Cllr Kate Groucutt, Cabinet Member for Business, Education and Skills at St Helens Borough Council
