Ireland-based glass manufacturer, Encirc, has picked up a prestigious CSR award at Business in the Community’s Responsible Business Awards.

Encirc won the Marketplace Leadership Award, for its commitment to developing products that inspire responsible customer behaviour and encourage more sustainable lifestyles.

The prize comes as the latest in a string of triumphs for the company, having recently scooped two awards at the British Glass¹ Focus conference in May.

In recent years, the company has developed its offering to shorten the supply chain for its customers, providing both cost and environmental savings.

Fiacre O’Donnell, head of strategic development, Encirc, commented: “When it comes to the creation of a more environmentally responsible future, manufacturers have a vital role to play.

"At Encirc, we’re continually looking for new ways to reduce our carbon footprint. As one of Europe’s most sustainable manufacturers, we’re proud to be recognised for our efforts at such a respected event.”
