The Green Growth Platform has won two awards that celebrate its work supporting green sector economic growth across East and West Sussex.
The first award came from the Green Organisation’s international Green Apple Awards, where the Platform won a Gold Award for Education and Training at a ceremony at the Palace of Westminster in London. The Green Apple Awards have been running for 15 years and celebrate organisations contributing to environmental sustainability across the world.
The second award in as many weeks came at the Environmental Association for Universities and Colleges’ Green Gown Awards, which celebrate environmental best practise in education in the UK and overseas. The Platform won the Highly Commended award for Enterprise and Employability. The judges said: “Student involvement, placement opportunities and job creation were all strong elements of the entry”.
Zoe Osmond, Director of the Green Growth Platform said:
We’re delighted to receive these two awards. They recognise the hard work and passion of the Green Growth Platform team and the dynamic and inspiring business community in Sussex that we are working with”.
