A tyres recycling company has been recognised as one of the Top 60 Best Green Companies in the UK by the Sunday Times.
Bandvulc Tyres Ltd received the accolade after a robust judging process designed to measure environmental performance and a survey of the company’s employees to find out whether the green sheen was more than skin deep.
At the annual awards ceremony in London, Bandvulc’s managing director Patrick O’Connell received the award from Alistair McColl, the Sunday Times Supplements Editor, for achieving a top 60 placement.
Mr O’Connell said: “This is fantastic recognition of the hard work and commitment everyone at Bandvulc makes to ensuring we all have a sustainable future.
“To be in the top 60 companies raises the profile of tyre recycling to a new level and shows that this can be done to a high quality ensuring safety and sustainability in one package, bringing a complete solution to our customers that is second to none.”
Bandvulc supplies retreaded truck tyres to many well known blue chip companies and 65% of all supermarket deliveries are made on Bandvulc tyres.
As a result, Bandvulc’s customers realise significant reductions in carbon emissions and savings on raw materials as, for every recycled tyre produced, 68 litres of oil and 44 kilograms of rubber compound are saved compared to a new tyre.
