Green entrepreneur of the year award

We could hardly believe it when our name was called out. Less than 2 years after we set up the company we have been recognised by a group of our industry peers as being the best at what we do. It has, without doubt, been a long and hard slog to get us to where we are now. So this award means so much to the entire team as it endorses the work we are doing. For me, working on the vision and strategy of the company every day, it is important to see the role environmental consciousness and sustainability is taking in mainstream business functions. We can see already the tide is turning towards a more environmentally aware way of operating. What came as most of a surprise to us was how many leaders in our industry that we met on the awards night were already noticing of the work we were doing.

We couldn’t have achieved this accolade without the support of so many people. Firstly the team we have at Elm is one of the main reasons we won. They are the best at what they do and live the core values and mission of Elm. This team also includes a long list of suppliers who work tirelessly to make everything we deliver the best in class. Of course all of this would be little without our customers who took a punt on us in the early days and have stayed with us ever since. They are leaders in their fields as they recognise the role sustainability will play in every aspect of their business in years to come. Finally, to all the people who supported us in setting up Elm. They are too many to mention but they know who they are. Without their belief, support (and money!) we would not be in the position we are in today.
