Cumbernauld-based CMS Window Systems has been recognised for its environmental excellence.

The window, door and curtain walling manufacturer won a Scottish Green Apple Award for Environmental Best Practice 2018.

In addition CMS has become a Green World Ambassador, meaning it will represent Scotland in the Green World Awards 2018 - a prestigious environmental awards programme that attracts entries from all over the world.

CMS Window Systems CEO David Ritchie said: “We’re delighted to win the Scottish Green Apple Award as it is a terrific endorsement of our sustainable business strategy.

“CMS was built from day one around environmental, social and economic sustainability, at the heart of which is our unique closed-loop recycling guarantee, ensuring our landfill waste is virtually zero and that our new windows and doors are easily recyclable at the end of their lengthy service life.

“It is also an honour to become a Green World Ambassador, and have a paper published in The Green Book. This will enable businesses throughout the world to learn from our experiences and help them achieve their own environmental best practice goals.”

This is the latest in a string of accolades for CMS, last year the company won gold in the UK Green Apple Awards and the Queen’s Award for Enterprise: Sustainable Development 2017.
