Earth Day is taking place on Wednesday April 22nd 2020, and pioneering green organisation, Proud to be Green, is marking the occasion with the launch of their Carbon Hero awards, a green award scheme that will boost positivity!

The Carbon Hero sustainability award is to recognise and celebrate organisations going beyond the call of duty in making a positive contribution towards lowering carbon emissions and actively engaging in making the world a more sustainable place for the future.

Proud to be Green gives businesses and organisations an innovative, simple and affordable way to green up and become more sustainable.  It was founded in 2019 by Business owner, Nigel Jones, who wanted to green-up his previous business but quickly realised that there was almost no support or assistance for SME’s at a price point that was professional grade, yet also highly affordable.

Utilising their EasyStep sustainability management software, businesses and organisations can join the programme to start their greening-up journey with the ultimate aim of becoming accredited.  Proud to be Green’s mission is to encourage as many businesses as possible across the UK to green-up and be sustainable.

This year, Earth Day 2020 is taking place amidst one of the most extraordinary world events. With the pandemic causing great disruptions across the globe, the organisers want to flood the world with “with hope, optimism and action”.  

Founder of Proud to be Green, Nigel Jones says: 

“We want to recognise businesses that are taking substantial action towards reducing carbon emissions and working towards a more sustainable world. There is much being done by businesses and organisations across the UK, but little to recognise the immense effort and passion that goes into creating a sustainable world for future generations”

This green award scheme is open to all organisations in the UK and is based purely on merit.  This award scheme is open to all applicants – Nigel Jones commented “We really do want to make a difference, so having an green award open to any business, and being totally free of charge, shows our commitment to helping and encouraging organisations along their sustainability journey”
