Vectair Systems on the way to green glory
Hearty congratulations to Vectair Systems, for winning a Green Apple Environment Award in the international campaign to find the greenest companies, councils and communities.
Having competed against more than 500 other nominations in the Green Apple Awards for Environmental Best Practice, the company will be presented with the Green Apple trophy and certificate at a glittering presentation ceremony in the Houses of Parliament, London on 16th November.
The company was recognised as a worthy award winner for its V-Air Solid multi-phasing air freshener with sub-micron technology. V-Air Solid is classified as VOC exempt and waste-free. It is completely free of any solvents, propellants, HFCs and harmful volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Further, V-Air Solid does not contain batteries. It is designed so that it does not need any external power source as such and it doesn't rely on gravity - all it needs to work is natural airflow. The refill is 100% organic and biodegradable and the dispenser is 100% recyclable.
As a result of this Green Apple Award success, Vectair has been invited to have its 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 its example and learn from its achievement.
Vectair Systems could also progress to represent its country in the Green World Awards, and the European Business Awards for the Environment.
Paul Wonnacott, managing director and president, Vectair Systems says: "We pride ourselves on being innovators in hygiene and the environment is something that our customers are increasingly becoming aware of. We have therefore invested a lot of time and resources into producing effective 'green' solutions and we are thrilled to have won such a prestigious accolade as the Green Apple Award for V-Air Solid!"
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, rewarding and promoting environmental best practice around the world.
The Green Apple Awards are supported by the Environment Agency, the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health, the Chartered Institution for Wastes Management and other independent bodies.
