CMS Window Systems has been recognised for the long term contribution it has made to Scotland’s sustainable development, by being named the winner of the Best of VIBES Award.
This special award featured in the 2019 programme to celebrate the 20th year of the VIBES Awards, with ten previous winners including CMS shortlisted for a public vote.
The awards programme for Scottish businesses aims to encourage the efficient use of resources, enhance competitiveness, improve environmental performance and support the wider goals of sustainable development, including social benefits through community and staff involvement.
CMS is a previous winner of two VIBES awards in 2009 and 2015, but this year’s accolade is particularly special for the company as it recognises the organisation able to best demonstrate its continuous improvement and contribution to Scotland’s sustainable development.
It is a win that reflects the ongoing progress CMS is making on its path to being a net zero carbon business – this is illustrated by its success in eliminating landfill waste for the last two years, the commissioning of its first electric vans and the implementation of its ground-breaking biodiversity programme to protect and enhance the environment around its sites.
David Ritchie, CEO at CMS Window Systems, commented: “We’re thrilled to win the Best of VIBES Award and would like to thank everyone who voted for us from a shortlist packed with businesses who are making a tremendous contribution to Scotland’s sustainable development.
“Holistic sustainability – environmental, social and economic – lies at the heart of our business strategy, but we know we cannot stand still, and we are continuously looking at how we can do things better.
“Our latest move to align our business with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals will undoubtedly help shape our sustainable future and we hope other businesses will follow suit to maintain Scotland’s status as a stand-out nation for its environmental achievements.”
