HTS Harlow’s series of environment events has won gold at the prestigious Green Apple Awards for environmental best practice.

HTS colleagues went to the House of Commons to be presented with the prestigious award. Health and Safety manager, Stella Dunlop was interviewed by Your Harlow on what they did to earn the award.

She said:

“We held a series of events to get people more aware of the environment.”

“We had campaigns like “pledge more plastic”; we had a sunflower growing competition which proved very popular. We built a Bug Hotel in the courtyard. We had quizzes about the trees that you can see from our offices.”

“We just wanted to get people thinking about the environment every day. And we really feel that the environment has become part of our every language”.

The Green Apple Awards is an international, annual campaign to recognise and reward environmental best practice. The Green Apple Environment Awards were launched in 1994 by The Green Organisation and have become well established as one of the most popular environmental campaigns in the world and are supported by the Environment Agency, the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health, the Chartered Institution for Wastes Management and other independent bodies.
