Hosted by Glasgow Chamber of Commerce, the Awards, which take place at The Hilton, Glasgow, on Thursday 6 October, are dedicated to celebrating outstanding contributions from large and small businesses across a range of categories.
The Sustainable Development Award is open to organisations who demonstrated they are actively improving and adding value to their business through sustainable practices.
The Green Champion Award recognises individuals or teams who demonstrate innovations and the impact of green initiatives they have driven forward for an organisation.
Discussing the nomination, Gary Rice, General Manager of the Golden Jubilee Conference Hotel, said: “The Glasgow Business Awards is one of the most prestigious events in the Scottish business calendar. To be nominated twice for our sustainability and green practices is a huge honour and major recognition of the efforts of our Green Team to make this possible.
“Over the past several years we have aimed for an environment of continuous improvement, aiming for new ways to make our practices more environmentally friendly, while still offering a comprehensive service for all of our guests and conference delegates.”
The Golden Jubilee Conference Hotel has consistently performed to a very high standard in the Green Tourism Business Scheme and has a strong track record of achieving environmentally friendly awards, including the Eco Hotel of the Year finalist at the AA Hospitality Awards 2013 and 2014, the Eco Award for Environmental Excellence at the Scottish Hotel Awards 2013, and recently receiving the Silver Accreditation in the TripAdvisor Green Award.
Gary added: “We provide specialist Green Conference Packages for event and meetings organisers, state-of-the-art electronic car charging points and an award winning restaurant and hospitality service which specialises in providing top of the range, locally sourced produce.
“Going forward we will continue to find new, innovative and exciting ways to reduce our impact on the environment and provide better value, greener services for all of our guests and delegates from around the world.”
