Proud to support The Glasgow Business Awards 2015

We’re delighted to announce that the ScottishPower sponsored Green Champion Award at the Glasgow Business Awards 2015 went to Film City Glasgow. A production company based in the historic Govan Town Hall, Film City Glasgow has created the innovative ‘Programme For Sustainability’ initiative, an ongoing project to promote environmental sustainability within their business. With building improvements and behavioural change schemes, they’ve reduced waste to landfill by 40%, gas consumption is down almost 50% and electricity use is down year-on-year.

Celebrating the success of Glasgow businesses

Michelle Nicol, Senior Manager – SME Marketing at ScottishPower, said: “Once again, the calibre of this year’s entries for the Green Champion Awards was incredibly high. It is hugely encouraging to see so many Scottish businesses adopting and embracing a greener way of operating and we’re thrilled to continue sponsoring an award that recognises the hard work and dedication of people like Sarah”.

“Film City Glasgow is leading the greener charge with its Programme for Sustainability initiative and is evidently focused on turning ideas in to reality to enhance its office’s environmental credentials and benefit the wider community.”

General Manager at Film City Glasgow, Sarah Potter said: “It’s such an honour to win this top green business award. Film City Glasgow works really hard to encourage and drive a greener way of working and I’ve loved being part of making this happen.

I’m over the moon to win and would like to thank ScottishPower for recognising our achievements. The good, greener practice doesn’t stop here however, Film City Glasgow will to continue to develop its sustainability project and encourage buy-in and engagement from all of its team and suppliers”.
