10th December 2021Tweet
Recognised for their partnership excellence, The Green Parts Specialists and Ageas Insurance have won the commercial category at the MRW National Recycling Awards.
Ian Hill, MD of Hills Salvage & Recycling and The Green Parts specialists said, “To win the award within such a tough category of finalists was an amazing outcome and testament to our successful partnership with Ageas Insurance to drive positive environmental change.”
He added, “The award is the culmination and recognition of all the hard work of everybody who has supported us on the journey to embrace the use of green parts within the repair chain.”
Robin Challand, Claims Director at Ageas, added: “We are delighted that our work with Hills and The Green Parts Specialists, to reduce the impact of car repairs on the environment, has received further recognition. Working very much in partnership, we have looked to innovate and continually challenge one another to take our initiative to the next level.
“I’m thrilled that currently, around one in five of the green car parts we use comes from our salvaged vehicles. This is helping to extend the use of existing materials, as well as reduce the need for more parts to be manufactured.”
The award judges commented that the collaboration is challenging perceptions and shows that unexpected partnerships can overcome big barriers. They also recognised that both organisations are early adopters in a market sector that is accelerating the transition to a circular economy.
The MRW National Recycling Awards are the most prestigious awards in the recycling and resource management sector. The awards seek to recognise and reward excellence and inspire others, for the advancement of the recycling sector.Tweet
