Awards co-ordinator, Gitty Ankers MBE, from the Environment Agency, said: “The aim of Cornwall Sustainability Awards is to encourage, reward and gain recognition for some of the excellent work businesses in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly are doing to improve their sustainability.

“We had many excellent applications this year and the initial shortlisting process gets harder every year and we’re happy we can hand over the hard work to the judges to select the overall winners.”

The judging team comprised of Matt Coleman from Health, Safety and Environmental Solutions; Mark Summers, head of environmental services for Cornwall NHS Trusts; Chris Pomfret, chair of the Cornwall Local Enterprise Partnership; Caroline Digby, the Eden Project; Daphne Skinnard, assistant managing editor at BBC Radio Cornwall; and Gitty Ankers MBE, senior environment officer for the Environment Agency.
