Mainetti’s green vision earns an accolade

A JEDBURGH firm has been recognised for its commitment to environmental excellence at a sustainable business awards.

Mainetti beat off stiff competition from businesses across Scotland to win the management award at this year’s VIBES 2012 ceremony which was held at the Glasgow Marriott Hotel.

Now in its 13th year, the Vision In Business for the Environment of Scotland (VIBES) awards programme recognises the commitment, actions and achievements of companies in reducing their impact on the environment. The VIBES management award recognises businesses whose management systems deliver continuous improvement in environmental performance.

John Bathgate, of Mainetti, said: “This is great recognition for our commitment to sustainability and reducing our carbon footprint. Not only does being green as a business support the environment, but it is also a boost for our bottom line.

“We now aim to build on this achievement by further expanding our green credentials.”
