A sustainable contribution

Representatives from CMS Window Systems were invited to discuss how a growing manufacturing business can make a positive contribution to a sustainable, low-carbon future at a special event held recently at the Scottish Parliament in Edinburgh.

A select group of pioneering businesses, which have previously won a Vibes Award (the Scottish environment business awards programme backed by the Scottish government) were invited to take part in a panel discussion chaired by Scottish Government advisor, Ross Martin.

Representing CMS on this panel was its full time in-house environmental advisor Amy Ledger, who drives the company’s sustainability strategy to ensure its ambitious goals, including its zero waste to landfill target, are achieved.

Attended by around 80 people, including nine Members of the Scottish Parliament (MSPs), the Vibes Celebrations Event was organised to provide an opportunity for businesses, politicians and the public to learn about how good environmental practice can bring economic and social success.

Amy Ledger said: “Being able to share our story with other like-minded businesses, individuals and policy-makers was an honour, and hopefully helps others to implement their own carbon reduction and social improvement strategies.”
