Investors in the Environment’s Becky Taylor is recognised for her contribution to sustainability at the inaugural Inspiring Women Changemakers ‘Igniting Inspiration’ Awards.
At the Inspiring Women Changemakers ‘Igniting Inspiration’ Awards in Bradford last week, Becky Taylor, who runs ‘Investors in the Environment’ in Yorkshire & the Humber, was presented with an Award for the Sustainability Savvy Organisation. The judges noted Becky's passion for sustainability and her ability to make a meaningful impact through her work. She was nominated for the award by iiE member Michelle Marks of Coral Mountain.
In September 2016, after over 20 years’ experience in industry, Becky gave up a full-time career to take over and develop the Yorkshire & Humber region of Investors in the Environment, alongside John Mooney from Pennine-Pack, the Packaging compliance organisation based in Hebden Bridge. Both organisations are part of the Green Business Network.
Investors in the Environment (iiE) is an established, national environmental accreditation and membership scheme designed to help small and medium-sized businesses save money, reduce their environmental impact and be formally recognised for their green achievements. “It’s all about ‘doing’ the right thing; taking action to achieve environmental goals, and receiving recognition and support” said Becky, “in the 12 months since we’ve been running the scheme, active membership has increased by over 50% mainly due to us having a personal approach and taking time to get to know our members’ businesses and how we can best help”
Investors in the Environment works with over thirty businesses in the Yorkshire & Humber region with a plan to continue to grow and develop the network. It encourages developing environmental initiatives and improving resource efficiency whilst helping to save money. The programme organises a series of fun and varied events which are free for members and include site tours, members coaching and networking events and our very special annual Awards Ceremony.
