It’s official! Vegware is Green Company of the Year. That was the big news last night at the inaugural Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce Awards. We were nominated for the High Growth Award too, but the judges felt we were the best of the five nominees up for the green award. So now we are the greenest company in Edinburgh!
Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce’s Deputy CEO, Graham Birse, was impressed by Vegware as a home-grown eco success story. “We are hugely proud of Vegware – they are a low-carbon high-growth Edinburgh company, living proof that ethics and commercial success do mix. We are delighted to officially recognise Vegware’s contribution both to the local economy and to improving sustainability worldwide.”
During the dinner, Edinburgh’s business elite raised money for Radio Forth’s charity, Cash for Kids, which improves the lives of local children. Our lucky streak continued, and Business Development Manager Chris Murphy won the raffle prize to be a zookeeper for a day at Blair Drummond Safari Park. We’re going to make a day of it and all go up at some point soon.
