Derbyshire-based Easibind won the small business category in the Finance for the Future awards, which aims to highlight financial leadership that "promotes business decisions for long-term sustainable value.”
Institute of Chartered Accountants (ICAEW) founded the awards along with Natwest and the Prince of Wales’s Accounting for Sustainability Project (A4S).
Easibind won recognition from judges for achieving quality and environmental management standards and for being proactive in the development of industry-wide standards.
The company was also lauded for achieving positive results against set targets, introducing a supply chain initiative, improving its processes and reducing its carbon footprint by 40 percent.
"There is strong emphasis on the sustainability agenda in all business areas which is championed by the managing director and this commitment is shared by staff,” said judges. "The business demonstrates a clear social impact with its program of work with schools, universities and the local community."
Easibind was originally founded as a manufacturing stationer before diversifying into areas such as the production of branded products for corporate stationery, packaging, promotion and point of sale and display.
The company announced that it had invested in an HP Indigo 5600 digital press last month.
