Armstrong Fluid Technology was presented with the Queen's Award for Enterprise for Sustainable Development
The honour was announced earlier this year, with the company becoming the first in the commercial-scale HVAC sector to receive such an accolade.
The presentation ceremony took place at Armstrong's state-of-the-art facility in Manchester, involving a tour of the premises followed by a presentation on Armstrong's award winning sustainability initiatives. This was followed by a speech by Kui Man Gerry Yueng OBE, Her Majesty’s Deputy Lieutenant of Greater Manchester. He presented Steve Cooper, director of sustainable design, Armstrong Fluid Technology with a scroll.
Mr Cooper commented: “Sustainability involves a number of small changes that, when combined, make a big difference. This award is in recognition of the collaborative efforts of everyone at Armstrong since 2012. We all play our part, whether that involves the products we create, to help our customers save energy and CO2, or the way we develop our buildings and carry out our operations. Initiatives such as installing solar panels and implementing processes at our plants to manufacture more sustainably are important. But so are simple day-to-day measures such as individuals switching off lights and recycling to reduce waste. It’s been a real team effort and we are extremely proud of our achievement. Having reached this important milestone, we are now setting our sights on the next key sustainability goal, as we strive for all of our plants around the globe to be Net Zero by 2030.”
