GAP earns Green Apple Award for reducing carbon footprint

GAP Hire Solutions has won a Scottish Green Apple Award for its environmental progress.

Arranged by The Green Organisation, the awards reward and promote environmental best practise and are supported by the Royal Environment Health Institute of Scotland (REHIS).

To enter, GAP had to submit an online entry, outlining why it should be considered for the award. The hire company’s submission was focused on GAP’s use of its telematics system, named GAP Track, as well as its range of environmental products. It discussed how the firm uses these aspects to help customers achieve their net zero goals, whilst also covering GAP’s own ambition to be carbon neutral by 2040.

There are different levels of award that can be achieved – Bronze, Silver, Gold and Green Champion. The winners won’t find out which exact award they have won until a presentation ceremony, currently due to be held in May at Cornhill Castle in Biggar.

Chris Parr, COO at GAP, said, “Finding out our Scottish Green Apple Award submission had been successful was a fantastic start to 2021. We are absolutely delighted to receive such a significant award and we are looking forward to the presentation ceremony to find out what level we achieved.

“This is wonderful recognition of GAP’s tireless work on reducing our own carbon footprint, as well as helping our customers reduce theirs too. Our continuous collaboration with suppliers to create and provide environmentally friendly and innovative equipment and systems will continue to play a vital role in reaching our aim of being carbon neutral by 2040.”
