"The latest accolade for G&P is the edie Sustainability Awards which are renowned internationally to reward sustainability excellence and innovation. Winning the 2018 Waste Management and Reduction Award is recognition of G&P’s strategy to drive waste reduction and sustainability. This is an ongoing commitment to manufacturing operational excellence to help our customers dramatically reduce their levels of waste. It was especially pleasing to win as we were up against some extremely tough competition which is a reflection of the high standard of applications to the prestigious edie awards. As quality management experts for the automotive and aerospace industries, G&P will proudly show our winners seal to further demonstrate our commitment to waste management and reduction."

“It is a genuine honour to win an edie Sustainability Leaders Award; in my mind it’s like winning an Oscar. These awards are the most prestigious for recognition of sustainability leadership and to be awarded ‘Sustainability Manager of the Year’ is something that I will hold high with pride. Integrating sustainability thinking into day to day operations at Adnams has been both extremely fun and rewarding, but to be recognised like this is very uplifting and something truly special for me."

Benedict Orchard from Adnams winner of the Sustainability/CSR Manager of the Year award

"We were thrilled to win the Sustainability Innovation award at the annual EDIE awards dinner and wanted to say thank you for putting on such a great event. Our clients from HSBC, Lloyds Banking Group and The Post Office have all thanked us for being able to attend the awards with us and congratulated us on our success. The high calibre of the competing businesses (all household names) makes the EDIE awards the most prestigious Sustainability recognition you can attain. Our marketing and PR team are already busy promoting our success which will encourage both our global staff and customer base that we are all working towards better outcomes for the future."
