The BOC Corporate Environmental Award recognises and rewards the efforts of individuals and organisations whom protect the natural world from the impact of industrial activity. BOC and NEPIC hope to raise local awareness of environmental issues and build Community ties. This award is open to all NEPIC members who have completed environmental improvement projects, which have been put in place within the past two years prior to January 2019.
As well as receiving a trophy at the prestigious NEPIC Annual Awards Dinner, held at Hardwick Hall on the evening of Friday 18 January 2019, the winner will also receive £2,000 to donate to a local school of their choice to fund an environmental project(s) – for example, in the areas of conservation, protection and development of local ecologies, preservation of local area of special natural interest, promotion of recycling and reuse, and the preservation of our air and water resources. Various opportunities will be offered.
In addition, all entries will be considered for additional funding from the BOC Foundation for the Environment.
