In 2018 we celebrated 20 years of environmental excellence

Over the Survey’s 20 years, organisations have come and gone, been bought and sold, renamed and restructured. However, through all of this change in the business landscape, 11 companies have taken part in every Survey since 1998. Additionally, 23 participants have completed the Survey for at least the last 10 consecutive years.

2018 George Dawson Award for Environmental Contribution

The George Dawson Award for Environmental Contribution was established in 2008 to pay tribute to the memory of George Dawson, a former Director of Business in the Community.

George passed away in 2007, following a short illness. During his nine years with the organisation, he developed the environmental campaign into a highly respected and successful driver for corporate environmental improvement in Northern Ireland.

This recognition award is designed to celebrate the significant contribution made by a business person to improving the environmental performance of his or her organisation and its impacts upon the environment and wider community.

2018 Trophies

The 2018 Northern Ireland Environmental Benchmarking Survey’s trophies and the George Dawson Award were made by local supplier David Keys Sustainable Woodworking.

David runs an ‘unplugged’ workshop, where he uses ‘old-school’ hand tools to reduce electricity consumption. Most of the tools he uses date back to before the Second World War, and he has restored them back to their original condition.

The trophies are made from broken fencing posts and offcuts from a shed manufacturer, and the glass inlays were made out of used glass from Bombay Sapphire gin bottles, making them truly circular
