Cleaning and facilities management specialist Floorbrite has won two major environmental awards in recent months, including an international award for waste management.
The Sale-based company is one of the leading commercial cleaning and facilities service providers in the UK, providing daily, industrial and window cleaning services to all sectors of industry.
In 2015, the firm expanded into the waste and recycling industry by offering streamlined waste management services, including waste audits, support programmes for internal and external recycling and environmental reporting.
Floorbrite has now been recognised for its waste management services with a bronze award at the Green World Awards, which took place in Dubai in December.
The Green World Awards is the international tier of the Green Apple Awards, which are issued to British organisations every November at the Houses of Parliament.
At the 2017 Green Apple Awards, Floorbrite was pitted against more than 500 firms to win gold for environmental best practice. It was also named a ‘Global Environmental Ambassador’ for the scheme.
The company won the same award in 2016 for helping to reduce waste at nearby Manchester packaging manufacturer Duo UK, which is also setting high environmental standards of its own.
Nik Wyers, joint managing director at Floorbrite, said: “Being named Environmental Ambassadors is truly an honour for us. This is the third year we’ve been awarded a Green Apple award, and being invited to Dubai to receive the Green World title further cements our commitment to long term sustainability.”
