Derrylin-based glass manufacturer, Encirc, has picked up a prestigious CSR award at Business in the Community’s Responsible Business Awards.
Encirc won the Marketplace Leadership Award, for its commitment to developing innovative products that inspire responsible customer behaviour and encourage more sustainable lifestyles. The prize comes as the latest in a string of triumphs for the company, having recently scooped the two awards at British Glass’ Glass Focus conference in May.
In recent years, the company has developed its unique integrated group offering to significantly shorten the supply chain for its customers, providing both cost and environmental savings.
Fiacre O’Donnell, head of strategic development, Encirc, commented: “When it comes to the creation of a more environmentally responsible future, manufacturers have a vital role to play. At Encirc, we’re continually looking for new ways to reduce our carbon footprint. As one of Europe’s most sustainable manufacturers, we’re proud to be recognised for our efforts at such a respected event.
Chris James, Head of Operations at Fujitsu, sponsor of the Marketplace Leadership Award said: “We are pleased to sponsor the Local Marketplace Leadership Award which recognises the products and services that help influence positive customer behaviour and encourage more sustainable lifestyles. We value the innovative thinking and problem solving needed to meet evolving consumer needs and so offer our congratulations to the Marketplace Leadership Award winner Encirc, and to all the other Business in the Community NI Responsible Business winners.”
More than 500 business people from across the country gathered at Belfast Waterfront Hall on Thursday 2nd June to see Northern Ireland’s leading responsible companies be recognised and rewarded for their actions.
