An environmental initiative at Chasewater has been awarded a Green Heroes shield.

The trophy for Chasewater Green Park Projects was presented to Lichfield District Councillor David Smith by Carol Royle at the Tower of London.

The shields are awarded each year to companies, local authorities and communities that are working on projects to enhance the environment.

Cllr Smith said:

“I was honoured to accept this trophy on behalf of the council and our partners, who are committed to tackling climate change. To be a green hero is a wonderful achievement and we will continue to work towards a greener future.”

The Green Apple Awards is run by The Green Organisation, an independent, non-political, non-profit organisation that recognises, rewards and promotes environmental best practice.

National Organiser Roger Wolens added:

“Organisations that go the extra mile and become Green Heroes are demonstrating a serious commitment to the world around them. They invest in a better future for us all and deserve to be recognised for their efforts.”

Chasewater Green Park Projects includes schemes ranging from researching greener ways to energy manage historic buildings – such as Lichfield Cathedral – to looking at ways to create carbon neutral business parks and demonstrating how to harness unused energy from coal fired power stations.
