2020 George Dawson Award for Environmental Contribution

Thank you and congratulations to Diarmuid Mullan, Site Manager, Heron Bros, who was awarded the 2020 George Dawson Award Diarmuid Mullan, Site Manager, Heron Bros, for passion and commitment to improving environmental performance, both within his company and in the wider community.

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.


2020 Trophies

The 2018, 2019 and 2020 Northern Ireland Environmental Benchmarking Survey 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 2020 trophies were made from old, disused wood including: a church pew, a park bench, and a bed frame.
