The Bluelite Group has been rewarded for all their recent work in making their operations more eco-friendly by winning the Sustainable/Ethical Manufacturer category of the Made in the South East Awards 2022.
The award recognises a business that has demonstrated the greatest commitment, through its products and processes, to forging a sustainable future for their company and region.
Bluelite is based in Burgess Hill, West Sussex, and has been at the forefront of vehicle livery design and application for more than 30 years and places sustainability at the core of its operations.
Bluelite's Managing Director, Lorraine Avery is delighted with the award win after encouraging everyone at the company to keep environmental impact at the heart of the work they carry out on a daily basis, as she explains:
"We have been working hard in partnership with our employees, suppliers and customers, to minimise our carbon footprint and reduce our environmental impact, so we are delighted that all our efforts have been rewarded.
"We're also very pleased to see that our core markets of publicly funded emergency services fleets are increasingly focused on supply chains contributing to sustainability goals.
"Bluelite is accredited to ISO 14001 for environmental management and we use independent assessors to chart our progress on our sustainability journey; we constantly challenge ourselves to do better."
In recent years, Bluelite has introduced a number of measures to reduce its environmental impact, including investing in renewable energy generation (solar panels) to reduce its carbon emissions, along with the use of low solvent inks, LED lighting and adoption of electric vehicle service support.
As a result of this win, Bluelite will now go forward to the Insider Made in the UK Awards 2023 to be held in Liverpool in June 2023, which brings together the winners from all of Insider Media's regional 'Made In……Awards'.
