At a well-attended awards ceremony in the Liverpool Anglican Cathedral last night, Abbey was named Liverpool Daily Post ‘Green Business of the year’ 2012. The award recognised local businesses that had made a real beneficial impact on the environment. It was an intense judging process with judges visiting the short-listed companies to gain a deeper insight into the submissions made. A short video was also shown on the night for each short-listed business promoting the work they had carried out. Abbey was named Motor Transport Haulier of the Year in 2010 and this latest award will be a welcome addition to the trophy cabinet and recognition that their slogan ‘on the road to a greener future’ is more than just words. The award was clinched by highlights such as the strong environmental KPI data which is published quarterly on the company’s website along with the revolutionary Twin Cargo Trailer which was launched for Abbeys largest customer Cargill plc in Manchester last month.
