Isle Of Wight's Green Impact Award Winners Revealed

The winners for the 2023 Isle of Wight Green Impact Awards have been announced.

This annual event shines a spotlight on the remarkable strides made by businesses and individuals across the Island in fostering positive environmental change.

For the past year, Isle of Wight businesses have actively participated in the Green Impact program, a collaborative initiative offered by Students Organising for Sustainability UK (SOS-UK).

This program empowers organisations, universities, colleges, community institutions, and students’ unions nationwide to create more sustainable work environments.

This year, 12 Island businesses stood out for their commitment to sustainability, earning recognition across four award categories: platinum, gold, silver, and bronze.

Their impactful efforts spanned various aspects of their work environments, including energy efficiency, waste reduction, biodiversity, and ethical procurement.

Special awards were bestowed upon individuals and teams who demonstrated exceptional enthusiasm or carried out innovative actions.

Cllr Julie Jones-Evans, Cabinet member for economy, regeneration, culture and leisure:

“Witnessing the rich diversity of businesses at the awards and learning about their sustainability efforts was a privilege.

"Regardless of their size, any business can utilise the free tools provided by Green Impact to enhance their sustainability practices.

“We encourage other local businesses to join the scheme and sign up for this initiative in 2024.”
