JPA Furniture of St Albans have won their second business Award of 2016! Attending the Hertfordshire Chamber of Commerce Inspiring Hertfordshire Awards on Thursday, they scooped the Environmental Award ahead of other finalists Tewin Bury Farm Hotel and Global Rail Construction Limited. “It was a bolt form the blue” said Fiona Edwards, Sustainablity Director, “just coming to the awards and sitting in the lovely cars at the Hatfield Porsche Centre would have been enough!”.
This is JPA’s second business award of the year, having picked up Best CSR Team at the Third Sector Business Charity Awards in April, where they were short-listed against npower.
It’s been quite a year for JPA who are busy expanding their office furniture business in St Albans and throughout Hertfordshire – their unique “One in, one out” end of life redundant furniture scheme has really set them aside from others I their field and they are delighted with the result.
“this can do our business nothing but good” says Fiona, but the fact that we are also improving our clients’ environmental performance as well as improving their bottom line is a big win.
Moving forwards there is a lot to look forwards to as they are also shortlisted for FSB Green and Community Awards later in June, and finalists for the National Recycling Awards in July.
