Environmental champions from across London and the South East attended the inaugural Archant London Environmental Awards on Friday 10th November.

The ceremony, held at the Radisson SAS Portman Hotel London, saw schools, colleges, businesses and individuals recognised for contributions of all shapes and sizes to environmental awareness and protection projects. Awards attracted hundreds of entries ranging from environmental household of the year, to companies of 200+ employees. The 10 categories included: Environmentalist of the Year, Most Environmental Household and Environmental Business of the Year. The style of entering was also in keeping with the environmentally friendly campaign and entrants were encouraged to enter online via the website www.London24.com

The World Land Trust (WLT) is delighted that two of its corporate supporters received awards on the evening: The Environmentalist Business of the Year winner was Chest of Drawers, a company which has carbon balanced through WLT since April 2007, and Chris Jenkin, Managing Director of WLT’s longest serving corporate Sponsor, Enterprise Plants, received the Environmentalist of the Year Highly Commended. Congratulations to both.
