Delphis Eco wins Queen’s Award for Enterprise in sustainability
“A business making an outstanding contribution to sustainability and one of only a very few companies to be singled out for recognition through these prestigious awards" was how The Deputy Lieutenant of Greater London, Christopher Wellbelove, described British-made Delphis Eco when he presented CEO, Mark Jankovich, with the highly coveted Queen's Award for Enterprise in Sustainable Development 2022.
Together with Leader of the Councillor for Lambeth Council, Claire Holland, Christopher Wellbelove visited the Delphis Eco' offices last week to make the presentation on behalf of the Lord Lieutenant of London.
The Delphis Eco team was recognised for the production of its award-winning, ecological cleaning range made from renewable, plant-based ingredients, providing highly effective and powerful products that arefree from toxins, fumes and chemicals to both professional and domestic markets.
With over a decade of experience under its belt, the brand is valued as an industry innovator, loved for being effective, delivering value, and approved by the planet for its practices.
Not only are Delphis's products rapidly being seen in cleaning markets as an eco-friendly, go-to choice, but with sustainability and plastic waste being given increasing visibility at procurement levels, the company has innovated and invested with its packaging, being what is believed to be the first to market in Europe in encasing its products in 100% recycled plastic.
According to CEO Mark Jankovich the journey to secure 100% recycled packaging was painful and lengthy:
"We wanted to evidence that if we, as a small SME could lead the way in driving the effective recycling of packaging and give second life to single life plastics, then this was a major signpost for larger manufacturers, who have subsequently followed suit,” he explains.
"We are deeply honoured to win the Queens Award for Enterprise in Sustainable Development and everyone within our team is immensely proud of the achievements over the past few years and in how we are really making a difference when it comes to these important societal issues.
"Everything we do looks to take carbon out of the environment whether it is our products or the way they are packaged and produced. As a business we are looking to be Net Zero by 2030 but equally importantly, we are looking at ways to support Government in its quest for individuals to reach Net Zero as well as businesses who are like-minded in their passion for sustainable trading and have made important science-based commitments."
Now in its 56th year, the Queen's Awards for Enterprise are the most prestigious business awards in the country, with winning businesses able to use the esteemed Queen's Awards' emblem for the subsequent five years.
Delphis Eco already holds two Royal Warrants from the late HM Queen Elizabeth II and HRH The Prince of Wales (now King Charles III). Mark Jankovich was last week further recognised as the Made in Britain Sustainable Leader of the Year Award.
"This award cements our ambition to continually strive to do more for society and the planet," says Mark.
