FRESH from its success in winning The Hunts Post Huntingdonshire Sustainable Development Award 2007, Anglian Water has won a clutch of further accolades, including the top gong in the Green Apple Awards for work on its strategy combating climate change.
As well as achieving National Champion status in the water industry category for the second year running, the company also won the Green Apple Silver Award for its work on raising awareness about the harm to the environment posed by fats, oils and greases in sewers.
The International Green Apple Environment Awards are one of the biggest award schemes of their type in the world. The awards for Best Environmental Practice were presented by top botanist and TV personality Professor David Bellamy in a ceremony at the House of Commons.
In another awards ceremony in London, Anglian Water won a Communicators in Business (CIB) Award for its "Shopping Trolley Art" project.
This follows on the success announced recently in which Anglian Water won the PR Week communications award for the same project, beating competition from Marks & Spencer and McDonald's.
Anglian Water's media manager Collette Nicholls said: "We were delighted to receive these awards. They all demonstrate the level of commitment Anglian Water has made to the environment."

The judges for the Green Apple Awards said: "In a changing environment they have taken the lead in reducing their effect and improving their response to those demands."
National organiser Roger Wolens commented: "We had around 750 nominations this year and presented about 80 awards, so they did particularly well to triumph against some very strong competition.
