We are delighted to have received an award this week, honouring our eco friendly business practices and recognising our team’s commitment to avoiding lengthy commutes in favour of working from home, and cycling to meetings wherever possible.
The PS Virtual team were awarded the tasty looking trophy titled ‘Commuting, A Thing Of The Past’ in Green Apple Award’s service industry category, at a prestigious ceremony at London’s Houses Of Parliament on Monday 10th November.
PS Virtual Assistant’s MD Sally Pallaris said, ‘We are delighted to win a Green Apple award for our sustainable services. Virtual staffing is a rapidly growing industry; not only does it save business’s money, but by cutting out the need for office space and employee commutes, it can reduce their annual carbon footprint dramatically, contributing to the future welfare of our planet and boosting the company’s reputation’.
The Green Apple Environment Awards were launched in 1994 by The Green Organisation to recognise individuals, company’s, council’s and international corporations who have made a positive impact on the environment or are working to improve sustainability. The awards are now in their eighteenth year and well established as one of the major environmental recognition schemes, both in the UK and globally.
