Staff at Crown Paints are celebrating after clinching a major award for their teamwork and commitment towards creating a more sustainable future. The company secured The Grichan Partnerships Sustainable Business Award in the 2015 Lloyds Bank National Business Awards.
The UK paint manufacturer was revealed as the winner at the award’s glittering gala dinner held at Park Lane’s Grosvenor House Hotel in London. Presented by Sky News’ Ian King and Poppy Trowbridge, the Lloyds Bank National Business Awards, played host to over 1,200 business leaders and welcomed former Astronaut and second man on the moon, Buzz Aldrin as headline speaker. The judges gave the award for the company’s pioneering Earthbalance® sustainability programme.
