AESSEAL has received the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the sustainable development category
The award states: “AESSEAL plc provides clear leadership both within the company and to the wider sector through its Betterworld.Solutions philanthropic initiative and has demonstrated a wide range of positive sustainable development impacts. It is particularly commended for its vision in developing new talent through its outreach work.”
This is the 13th Queen’s Award received by AESSEAL plc and the 15th for the AES Engineering Ltd. Group. The latest Queen’s Award for Enterprise recognises AESSEAL’s commercially successful products, services and management that benefit the environment, society and the economy. Previous Queen’s Awards have included those for exports and technological achievement as well as a previous sustainability award in 2009.
Managing Director and founder, Chris Rea, said that the latest Queen’s Award was the greatest single honour that can be bestowed on a business and underlined the importance of commercial success being combined with a strong environmental conscience.
“This is a significant boost for morale and will help focus our attention even more on the importance of doing what we can, working with major industry globally, to tackle the climate crisis”, he said.
Gordon Bridge, who was AESSEAL’s Chief Executive Officer from 1995-2018, was the invited guest of honour at the official raising of the Queen’s Award flag at Mill Close at 11am on April 21, 2022.
