The eco achievements of businesses have been brought into the spotlight with the Investors in the Environment awards staged in Peterborough.

Investors in the Environment was launched four years ago by Peterborough Environment City Trust to help businesses reduce their impact on the environment.

Scores of firms from across the region took part in the awards ceremony, and which was held at the Kingsgate Conference Centre, in Peterborough.

Highlights included Queensgate Shopping Centre, which won the Great Green Star Award, and which has reduced energy consumption by 45 per cent over the last five years.

Peterborough Regional College also secured a Great Green Star Award and has saved more than £181,000 on water, electricity and gas.
