Cemix finalist in Green Ribbon Awards 2011
Cemix Ltd was proud to be selected as a finalist in the Small Businesses Making a Difference category of the 2011 Green Ribbon Awards. The Awards ceremony was held on 9thJune in Parliament by the Ministry of the Environment.
The Ministry for the Environment runs the Green Ribbon Awards each year. These awards recognise the outstanding contributions made by individuals, organisations, businesses and communities to protecting and enhancing New Zealand’s environment. The Small Business category award recognises small businesses (employing less than 100 people) who demonstrate an on-going commitment to environmental best practices.
The Ministry stated, ‘CEMIX Ltd is an innovative New Zealand construction products manufacturer that has developed a concrete product called Envirocrete using 50% recycled materials from construction and demolition waste. The development of Envirocrete has resulted in the diversion of C&D waste from landfill, and has reduced the need for quarrying of virgin aggregates for concrete mixes. CEMIX Ltd is a prime example of a New Zealand small business leading the way internationally to drive sustainable practices in their industry.’
Bhav Dhillon, CEO of CEMIX Ltd, said, ‘being a finalist is a testament to our teamwork of catapulting brand ‘CEMIX” onto the centre stage in NZ. All this could not have been possible without the unflinching support and collaborative effort the CEMIX team have been putting in behind the company, its vision and values.’
