The results are in and Blackmore has been announced as the winner of the Environmental Impact award at the Dorset Business Awards!
In September, Blackmore was selected as one of three finalists in the Environmental Impact award category, against some really tough competition (Suttles and Charles Trent Ltd). Then in October, we joined over 200 people in attending the 2023 Dorset Business Awards ceremony to find out the winners of each of the 10 categories. We were absolutely thrilled to be selected as the winner of the Environmental Impact award at the October awards ceremony.
The award category sponsors, Blue Sky Financial Planning, said "This award celebrates a business leading the way in its carbon footprint and impact on the environment through innovative, sustainable business practices."
Andrew Robbins, Managing Director at Blackmore, said "The awards celebrated some of the amazing work created by Dorset businesses and we were delighted to share the evening with them. Congratulations to everyone who took part in the evening and for Dorset Chamber for organising such a sparkling evening."
Andrew added "I would also like to extend a massive 'thank you' to our dedicated team at Blackmore - I am very proud of you and winning this award wouldn't have been possible without you. In addition, I would also like to give a big shout out to our suppliers and partners, who we selected to work with for their green credentials, such as Low Carbon Dorset, Perry's Recycling and J&G Environmental."
In Blackmore's Environmental Impact awards submission, we included details of our green printing credentials, such as:
How we make our customers' print projects more environmentally-friendly, by offering sustainable materials, inks, carbon balancing, and offering a free consultation on how to make their print project more sustainable
How we lower CO2e emissions and save on energy through investments in new machinery . This includes savings of 360,000 of water per year, 60% reduction in power, using 30% less inks and more (click to read more about the green savings stats here)
Also how we manage our own environmental footprint. This includes sending zero to landfill since 2012, recycling 100% of our waste, and our commitment to achieving net-zero this decade.
