Autoelectro, based in Bradford, has won a Green Apple Environment Award in the international campaign to find the greenest companies, councils and communities.
They competed against more than 500 other nominations in the Green Apple Awards for Environmental Best Practice, and they will be presented with their trophy and certificate at a glittering presentation ceremony in the Houses of Parliament, London on Monday, November 16.
As a result of this Green Apple Award success, they have been invited to have their winning paper published in The Green Book, the leading international work of reference on environmental best practice, so that others around the world can follow their example and learn from their achievement.
They could also progress to represent their country in the Green World Awards, and the European Business Awards for the Environment.
The Green Apple Awards began in 1994 and have become established as the country’s major recognition for environmental endeavour among companies, councils, communities and countries.
The awards are organised by The Green Organisation, an independent, non-political, non-activist, non-profit environment group dedicated to recognising, rewarding and promoting environmental best practice around the world.
The Green Apple Awards are supported by the Environment Agency, the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health, the Chartered Institution for Wastes Management and other independent bodies.
Managing director, Tony Bhogal, said that this was a fantastic achievement and great to be acknowledged for its efforts and continual investment in the environment. The company has also recently achieved ISO14001 accreditation which is the internationally recognised Environmental Management Standard.
“He added that the award recognised the company’s commitment to the environment with its principal activity being the remanufacture of starter motors and alternators for the automotive industry particularly in the face of pricing pressure from cheaper quality far eastern copy parts.
The remanufacturing of starter motors and alternators involves the complete dis-assembly, replacement of faulty and wear parts, re-assembly and final testing to Original Equipment standards using the latest state-of-the-art computerised test-benches. Every remanufactured unit is sold with a two years warranty.
Autoelectro supplies its products throughout the UK and Ireland and is looking to expand further into Europe.
The company has been established since 1986 and is privately owned. It is also ISO9001 and OHSAS18001 accredited and is the largest UK based remanufacturer and supplier of automotive starter motors and alternators in the country.
