EECO Awards 2012 /

The very best environmental business achievers in Camden were celebrated at the fourth annual EECO (Environmental Excellence in Camden Organisations) Awards, held this year at the Wellcome Trust on October 25th.

The Awards were organised by the Camden Climate Change Alliance - a partnership between Camden Council and local organisations of all sizes, across all sectors,working together to cut carbon emissions in the borough.

The event highlighted that every organisation can ‘go green’, regardless of their size and sector. Local community centre The Pirate Castle’s Gus Alston was a recipient of one of three outstanding individual awards, while at the other end of the spectrum, UCLH NHS Trust took away two trophies, including the much coveted ‘Outstanding contribution to environmental sustainability in Camden’ award.

Special congratulations too to Alun Wood, an employee of inmidtown member Central YMCA, for winning a prize for "Exceptional contribution by an individual to their organisation's environmental performance".

UCLH's Sustainable Development Manager, Joanne Wilson said: "It's a privilege to work with so many great organisations who are all committed to reducing carbon. We are absolutely thrilled to have been recognised for our efforts and to win two awards in one evening is fantastic, especially as the competition was so strong.”
