Green World Ambassador Award

The Skainos building had already won a Green Apple Environment Award in the national campaign to find Britain’s greenest companies, councils and communities, and the Green World Ambassador status is reserved for winners who also help others to help the environment.
The award–winning project paper has been published worldwide in The Green Book, so that others around the world can follow their example and learn from their experience. The Green Book is the leading international work of reference on environmental best practice that is distributed globally to national and local governments, businesses, universities, reference libraries, environment professionals, etc. 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.
