Love Solihull become international ambassadors for the environment

SMBC’s environmental initiative, Love Solihull, has scooped another award for environmental best practice and are also set to become international ambassadors for the environment.

Following last year’s success at The Green Apple Awards – where they picked up an award for environmental best practice – Love Solihull has gone on to receive an International Corporate Social Responsibility Excellence Award at this year’s awards.

They will also become Green World Ambassadors as their winning paper will be published in The Green Book – a leading international work of reference on environmental best practice.

Solihull Council’s Cabinet Member for the Environment and Highways, Cllr Ken Hawkins, said: “Love Solihull work with local businesses, schools, residents and community groups to make a positive difference to Solihull and its environment.

“They link local businesses with community projects and go on to deliver some amazing projects from developing school grounds to supporting litter picks.

“This award is justifiable recognition of the work that they carry out in Solihull and shows what we can achieve when we all work together. The dedication and support of volunteers from across the borough has made these awards possible.”
