After being selected as a finalist for the Made in Scotland awards last month, unfortunately we didn’t take home the trophy, Bonar Yarns was recently surprised with becoming a finalist for the Business Green Leader Awards within the ‘Manufacturer of the Year’ category, for our contribution to sustainability and environmentally friendly processes.
At Bonar Yarns we invested in a technology, which allows us to recycle much of our polymer waste by re-extruding it into pellets. These pellets are then used to produce certain types of yarn, always to our highest standards of quality; making our process both environmentally and financially efficient – highlighting yet another unique yarn innovation from Bonar Yarns.
It’s an ongoing cycle from which our unique BONAECO Carpet Yarns are made (100% recycled material)– with absolutely no compromise on quality. As we also participate with the UK Government’s Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC) Energy Efficiency Scheme for all our facilities around the world, we are actively striving for sustainability in everything we do – which makes us a key candidate for these awards.
The Business Green Leaders Awards bring together over 600 executives, entrepreneurs, investors, policymakers, and campaigners to celebrate the green economy’s most exciting and innovative achievements from the past 12 months.
In the wake of the historic Paris Agreement, the pressure on the business community to forge a path towards a genuinely low carbon and sustainable economy has never been greater. The theme of this year’s awards is making the Paris Agreement a reality. That is not to say we only want entries from those working on climate change solutions, far from it. But we do want to hear from those businesses, NGOs, and executives who are working, day in, day out, to turn global sustainability pledges into an economic and commercially-viable reality.
Now in their sixth year, the UK’s largest and most prestigious green business awards promise to be bigger than ever as the green business community comes together once again to showcase how a cleaner, healthier, and more productive economy is not just possible – it is already being built
We have some strong competitors including: Alara Wholefoods, Freedom Brewery ,Kingspan Insulated Panels, Kyocera Document Solutions, Panasonic, Sunsquare, Tetra Pak, Toshiba TEC UK and Toyota Material Handling Europe.
The awards will be held at The Brewery, London on Wednesday 6 July 2016 – wish us luck!
