Double for Ireland

Earlier this month, the European Business Awards, which promote success, innovation and ethics within the European business community, were held in Istanbul, Turkey. Two Irish companies won awards this year.

Firstly, Coillte was the recipient of the Millicom Award for Environmental and Corporate Sustainability, which is recognition of the considerable advances made by the company in its drive for sustainable forest management.

Secondly, Glennon Brothers, the Longford and Fermoy-based sawmill, was awarded the Ruban d'Honneur medal, in recognition of their export strategy. This follows the company being named Ernst & Young Ireland Entrepreneur of the Year in the Industry category in 2010.
