Besst in class

Epwin Window Systems has won the Sustainable Business Award from Business Environmental Support Scheme Telford (Besst) 2017, for Carbon and Energy Management.

Paul Nelms, Epwin’s group environmental manager, said: “We are delighted to have won this award. As a business we are committed to ongoing energy reduction throughout our Telford extrusion plant and to collect a sustainable business award proves this commitment is being duly recognised.”

Besst was launched in 2001 to help businesses improve their environmental performance and reduce their carbon footprint. Members come from both the private and public sectors with represented industries ranging from manufacturing and engineering through to tourism and retail.

The Besst Group works in partnership with the Environment Agency and Shropshire Wildlife Trust. Their methodologies and best practices are used as exemplars to universities and help influence decision making both at governmental level and strategically in the international arena.

The award was presented to the Epwin Windows Systems’ management team by chairman of Besst, Andy Whyle, at the company’s Telford manufacturing headquarters in December.
