Lomond Timber Frame, part of the Lomond Group of Companies based in Glenrothes has taken a major step towards becoming a National Green Hero, by winning a prestigious Green Apple Award in the national campaign to find Britain’s greenest companies.
Lomond Timber Frame’s Dynamic Insulation system is a low energy, carbon saving, insulation system which could revolutionise the housing industry, and help meet government targets on carbon emissions.
They competed against more than 100 other nominations and will be presented with their Green Apple Award by Trevor Baylis, inventor of the wind up radio, at a glittering presentation ceremony at the University of Westminster on 20th June 2011.
As a result of this success, Lomond have been invited to have their winning paper published in The Green Book, the leading international work of reference on environmental best practice, so that others around the world can follow their example and learn from their experience. Lomond Timber Frame will also be considered to represent their country in the European Business Awards for the Environment.
The Green Apple Awards began in 1994, and have become established as the country’s major recognition for environmental endeavour among companies, councils, communities and countries.
The awards are organised by The Green Organisation, an independent, non-political, non-activist, non-profit environment group dedicated to recognising and promoting environmental best practice, and judges are drawn from the Environmental Agency, the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health, the Chartered Institution for Waste Management, BRE and other independent bodies.
