‘Being named runner-up manufacturer of the year to a giant company with Dell’s resources is a massive achievement and firmly places Brand-Rex in the league of the world’s most environmentally advanced companies,’ said Brand-Rex environmental development manager Kennedy Miller. ‘This places us far in advance of any other company in the copper and fibre optic network infrastructure sector.’
The Green IT Awards 2013, which were supported by the UK government’s department of Energy and Climate Change, set out to showcase and reward the organisations that have made the most significant contribution to improving the IT industry’s environmental performance over the preceding 12 months.
Amongst the judging criteria winners were required to demonstrate ethical management practices – including showing they went ‘beyond the call of duty’ and that its ‘green’ efforts are reflected in its advertising, marketing and sales – to help increase visibility of the topic throughout the industry.
Miller added, ‘Taking the environmental approach to business is not just an add-on, it requires a complete transformation in thinking across an organisation. Far too many companies have failed to grasp the idea that once you’ve done a full environmental audit – it immediately shows you where you can cut costs and improve profits.
‘To be judged in the same league as Dell is a massive honour and recognition of the foresight of the staff, management and the whole supply chain at Brand-Rex. My profound thanks go to them all.’
