REGYP has won the NSW Government’s top environmental award for Environmental Innovation at the Green Globe Award ceremony held on 24 September at NSW Parliament House.
REGYP took out the honour for its Plasterboard Recycling project.
Adam Proctor said that winning the Award raises their profile as a leader in sustainability and environmental excellence.
“It is very rewarding to know that REGYP is helping the manufacturing, building and agricultural industries deal with the growing issues of waste and finite resources, but to receive recognition and exposure through the 2013 Green Globe Awards is a great achievement for our business.” Adam Proctor said.
“REGYP recycles waste plasterboard in 100% reusable products such as recycled gypsum throughout Australia, diverting waste away from landfills,” said Adam Proctor.
NSW Environment Minister and host of the Awards, Robyn Parker, congratulated this year’s winners saying that the diversity of their projects proves that sustainability has become part of everyday business in NSW.
“The 2013 winners show us that no matter the size or type of organisation, investing in sustainability brings social and economic benefits to the community,” said Ms Parker.
“The Green Globe Awards foster partnerships and helps like-minded organisations to share ideas and learn from each other.
“It’s exciting to see this year’s winners leading by example and striving to find new ways to live and work more sustainably.
“By working collaboratively we can improve businesses environmental performance and make communities and Government more sustainable,” Ms Parker said.
