Total Information Management company Shredall and SDS Ltd is celebrating a recent win at the Midlands Family Business Awards as it was recently awarded winner of the Environmental Sustainability category.

Hosted this year at the Athena in Leicester, the annual Midlands Family Business Award showcases several family-run businesses each year, ranging from small businesses to large, multi-million pound enterprises. Split across ten categories, businesses are chosen who hold strong family values and strong succession plans.

Announced as finalists in August 2015, Shredall and SDS Ltd eagerly awaited the event due to their roots as a family-run business.

Shredall and SDS are committed to environmental sustainability and its recent win at the Family Business Awards now acknowledges this. Amongst some of their sustainable initiatives, Shredall recycle 100% of the paper they shred. Their commitment to the ISO 14001 compliance means they constantly monitor fuel and electric consumption across their business processes.

Lucy Shipley, Director of Shredall and SDS Document Storage and Scanning said: “We’re absolutely delighted to have won the environmental sustainability award. We’re constantly evaluating and improving our waste and energy output and to be finally acknowledged for this effort is very rewarding. Our hard work to implement energy efficiency in our workplace has finally paid off.”
