The IPS team was delighted to attend the Echo Environment Awards 2022 ceremony as a finalist.
Technical Business Development Manager Payman Shafighi and Business Development Assistant Matthew Halton represented IPS at the prestigious event which was held at The Isla Gladstone Conservatory in Liverpool.
The Liverpool Echo Environment Awards recognise the best environmental businesses, schools, community projects and individuals to thank those who are making a difference and celebrate their magnificent achievements in Merseyside and beyond.
IPS reached the last three in the Green Business of the Year category losing to Waste Not Want Not - the first zero-waste refill shop to open in Merseyside, making sustainable products accessible. It has saved more than 15,000 carrier bags and 20,000 plastic bottles from landfill by allowing people to be more conscious consumers.
Payman Shafighi said: “The IPS team has been quietly carrying out often ground-breaking work in the field of Integrated Pest Management to help reduce pesticide usage worldwide. This is not only making food production greener but reducing the amount of chemicals humans and animals ingest though food. In addition, IPS’ work is helping to reduce the impact of chemicals on our delicate ecosystem.
“It is the first time we have entered these awards so we were thrilled to be shortlisted in recognition of our contribution to the environment. The competition was very tough and we were inspired by what we heard at the event. We hope to enter again next year.”
E-Verve Energy Ltd was a joint finalist with International Pheromone Systems
The event was headline sponsored by United Utilities.
