Green World Award
CMS Window Systems has achieved a Green World Award in the international campaign to find the greenest countries, companies, and communities.
The aluminium and PVC window, door and curtain walling manufacturer and installer, received this latest accolade in the ‘Building & Construction’ category at an awards ceremony attended by over 200 people in the Turkish capital city, Ankara. CMS Window Systems was one of several companies representing the UK following its success in becoming a Green World Ambassador, having won Gold in the Scottish Green Apple Awards earlier this year.
The awards are organised by The Green Organisation, an international, independent, non-political, non-profit environment group which aims to ‘improve environmental performance, encourage the efficient use of resources and enhance the competitiveness of organisations, as well as supporting the wider goals of sustainable development, including social benefits through community and staff involvement.’
This success for CMS follows its winning a Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the Sustainable Development category in 2017, as well as a Gold award in the International Green Apple Awards for Environmental Best Practice. This resulted in its winning paper being published in The Green Book, the world’s only annual work of reference on environmental best practice, distributed to environment professionals, universities and libraries around the world.
CEO David Ritchie said: “CMS Window Systems has grown and thrived because of our environmental strategy, not in spite of it, and we hope other organisations can do so too.”
