Sussex MD invited to join expert panel for environmental awards
Angela Gill, managing director of Sussex chemical company Bio-Productions, has been invited to join the judging panel for the 2018 Green Apple Environment Awards.
For the second time, Angela will join a team of experts from a diverse range of industries for the internationally-renowned awards initiative.
Together with the judging team, she will review and mark entries from around the globe with the aim of recognising, rewarding and promoting environmental best practice.
Launched in 1994 by The Green Organisation, the Green Apple Awards have become one of the most popular environmental campaigns in the world. They now extend into the Green World Awards – the biggest environmental awards on Earth.
“Bio-Productions are a previous Green Apple Award winner so it is a great honour to once again be asked to sit on the panel,” Angela said. “Like Bio-Productions itself, these awards are keen to celebrate technological and biological advancements to promote a healthier planet and more environmentally-sympathetic practices in a whole range of industries.”
The cleaning chemical company, which has manufactured premium environmentally-friendly cleaning products since 1984, previously won three awards from The Green Organisation. This includes winning gold in 2007 for their Biological Urinal Blocks and Biological Washroom Cleaner.
This year, judging will take place in August while the Awards ceremony will be held at The House of Commons in November
"As MP for Mid Sussex I believe passionately in the importance of a vibrant local business community in order to create and sustain fantastic opportunities that enable people to meet their responsibilities, prosper and fulfil their potential. I am committed to collaborating with BHBPA and others to be an effective collective voice for Burgess Hill."
"“I have belonged to this group since I started my own business, Lea Graham Associates, in 1986. The association has been through several incarnations since then, but its most recent one, BHBPA, is by far the best.
It’s much more than just a networking group, although it is supremely good at that too. BHBPA is inclusive and friendly and acts like a mutual-support society. The events are stimulating, worthwhile and often great fun and I believe most members share this opinion.”"
"I am delighted to have a long-standing relationship with the BHBPA. Since its foundation the Association has gone from strength to strength and there is no doubt that it has brought huge benefits to its members and the business community as a whole through the partnerships it has formed with the local authorities, Sussex Police and local organisations. It is paramount that Burgess Hill businesses have an effective collective voice."
"“I can’t speak highly enough of the BHBPA. As a small local business we feel very much part of a community and thoroughly enjoy the annual exhibition and meetings throughout the year. Over the years we have built fantastic working relationships with many BHBPA members and every meeting and event offers us opportunities to work with more. This is networking at its best! ” "
