Scotmid Co-operative achieves gold

The Head Office of Scotmid Co-operative has been presented with the gold level of our National Award for Environmental Excellence® on their first assessment.

The accolade recognises the dedication of Scotmid Co-operative in maintaining a clean, clear and welcoming Head Office, and the work being undertaken by the team in supporting local groups and charities.

We have commended the organisation on its environmental practices, including electric vehicle charging points for staff and the public, and the use of solar panels.

To celebrate, Scotmid Co-operative welcomed our Operations Director, Pete Leonard, to the Head Office, where he presented Maurissa Fergusson, Katrina Anderson and Shirley MacGillivray with the award.

Maurissa Ferguson, Scotmid Co-operative's Head of Property and Development, said: "We're really pleased to be presented with this Environmental Excellence Award and to reach the Gold standard is an achievement that we can all be proud of.

"We've made a real effort to improve how our collective behaviour can be more environmentally friendly and small gestures such as the introduction of reusable coffee cups has already made a noticeable difference."

Throughout Scotland, over 130 business locations, from shopping centres, leisure and cultural trusts to train stations and ports, have been audited for a National Award for Environmental Excellence, find out more information and how to enter.
