John Lawrie Group was among 38 Scottish companies chosen as finalists for the 2017 VIBES award which recognised the commitment, actions and achievements of Scottish businesses working hard to reduce their impact on the environment.

Environmental Director Ray Grant says; “ Winning the Circular Economy award is a real testament to the hard work and commitment from everyone at John Lawrie Group towards reducing our impact on the environment. We are fully committed to the Circular Economy model which is being actively driven across the UK and Europe with Scotland at the very forefront, and are proud to take our place amongst many excellent companies working hard to deliver a sustainable future.”

Judges were looking for evidence of broader commitments to sustainable development, such as an environmental management system, and a demonstration that the company has an existing commitment to reducing environmental impacts through a Circular Economy approach.
