GPS PE Pipe Systems has won a Business in the Community Carbon Positive Award

GPS PE Pipe Systems is proud to win a Business in the Community Carbon Positive Award, which is awarded to companies consistently striving to reduce their carbon footprint and impact on the environment. 

Cambridgeshire based GPS was one of the several representatives shortlisted for this prestigious independent peer-assessed award, run in association with the Financial Times. GPS came joint first with the University of East Anglia in the East of England regional group.

GPS won the award for its efforts to reduce energy usage, waste consumption and improve recycling processes. In 2009 alone, various initiatives undertaken by the company, led to electricity usage being reduced by one fifth and gas usage - by a quarter, whilst landfill waste was almost halved. Other initiatives, such as free scrap polyethylene pipe collection & recycling scheme and a sustainable product offering, were also demonstrated to the panel of independent judges.

GPS’s Managing Director Martin Gisbourne commented: “We are delighted to win the Carbon Positive Award 2010. This award shows that we take a sustained approach to our environmental responsibilities and that being responsible is integral to our business model".
