The environmental credentials of leading window, door and curtain walling designer, manufacturer and installer CMS Window Systems have once again been recognised at the highest level, with the company named a winner in the 2016 Scottish Business Awards.
CMS was delighted to receive the “People’s Postcode Lottery Green Business of the Year” award, an accolade that comes hot on the heels of the company’s recent wins in the Scottish Resources Awards and the European Business Awards for the Environment. The winner was announced at a prestigious event in Edinburgh at which Leonardo Di Caprio delivered the keynote speech.
The Scottish Business Awards are held annually and supported by the Royal Bank of Scotland. They aim to recognise excellence in Scottish business and celebrate those who are building, and leading, successful, growing and dynamic businesses in Scotland. Winners are drawn from all business sectors with 2015 winners including Skyscanner and Cala Homes.
With its commitment to sustainability at the core of its business strategy, CMS impressed the judging panel with its wide-ranging and unique recycling processes, closing-the-loop ethos and state-of-the-art learning and showcase facility - the CMS Innovation Hub – as well as its zero-carbon window option that is capable of transforming the energy efficiency of Britain’s homes. The company recycles thousands of tonnes of waste annually and reintroduces as much recovered PVC, aluminium and glass as possible directly back into the manufacturing process at levels which no other UK window and door business of its kind can do.
Andy Kerr, Managing Director of CMS Window Systems said: “It’s fantastic to be named a winner in the Scottish Business Awards. The calibre of nominations is first rate and so to receive this award is a tremendous achievement, reflecting our sustained effort from day one to ensure environmental, social and economic sustainability is fundamental to every part of our business.”
