Here’s what Ryan from Union had to say –
“The grant of the award is based upon a review by independent business experts of Union, and in the words of the award committee guidelines demonstrate “how outstanding sustainable development practices have helped to improve commercial performance.” It reinforces that there is recognisable value to companies in thinking deeply about ethical sourcing and long-term, correct purchasing practices. Union are delighted to receive this recognition as we have always believed that we could develop a company that demonstrated through its commitment and action that better outcomes can be achieved for farmers producing the coffees we source, and when undertaken with integrity as a core company value, helps to give us all a commercial advantage that resonates with our shared consumers.
We’re blown away to have the cornerstone of all we do recognised in such a way. Thank you for your on-going custom and partnership, as without that none of this is possible.”
Karen, CEO at Belu water also shared her feelings with us –
“This prestigious award recognises outstanding business achievement by UK organisations. Belu has been honoured in the Sustainability category for demonstrating continuous reductions in CO2 emissions, constantly seeking new ways to reduce our impact and creating net positive outcomes both environmentally and socially.
It’s an absolute honour to be one of just eleven British companies to receive this award for Enterprise in Sustainable Development. As a small and proudly British social enterprise, it’s amazing to receive this recognition for our mission led business model and our achievements. We are looking forward to officially being presented with the award at Buckingham palace later this year and of course Belu will continue to focus on collaborations and innovations to lead the way for sustainability in the water sector.”
We’re very proud to partner with suppliers that share our Peachy values!
