Veracity wins prestigious environment accolade at 2016 VIBES Awards

Veracity, the provider of innovative and intelligent solutions that solve real-world IP video challenges in transmission, storage and display has won a Vision in Business for the Environment of Scotland (VIBES) 2016 ‘Environmental Product or Service’ Award, which recognises the significant contribution to the environment made by the company through its products and approach to end-to-end product lifecycle management.

VIBES* is Scotland’s leading environmental awards scheme. For the last 17 years, it has recognised and rewarded those businesses contributing towards the country’s sustainable development by taking significant steps to either improve or reduce their impact on the environment. This year, 32 Scottish businesses were shortlisted from a record number of entries. Each of the finalists underwent a rigorous judging process, including a programme of site visits, in order that their environmental practices could be assessed.

The award recognises the significant contribution to the environment which Veracity’s products make while delivering cutting-edge technology and consistently reliable quality. The manner in which the company and its staff demonstrably commits to reducing energy costs in the production, performance and lifecycle of its products was duly recognised by the Judges.

Alongside the continued enthusiasm of the team, this award should assist in stimulating a wider adoption of the technology globally, in turn creating measurable environmental and economic benefits through a quantifiable reduction in the carbon footprint associated with the rapidly growing surveillance industry.

Both Veracity’s COLDSTORE and TIMENET solutions were mentioned specifically for the significant levels of energy saved, as was the company’s consideration of the whole end-to-end product lifecycle.

“COLDSTORE has won a number of awards for technical innovation, so we’re delighted to see that its environmental credentials have also now been recognised,” said Alastair McLeod, Group CEO of Veracity. “Winning in our first year of entering these awards is a great achievement. We’re very grateful to the Veracity team that developed COLDSTORE, the design of which is underpinned by the three core values of the company: innovation, reliability and environmental awareness.”

Gillian Bruce, chair of the VIBES Awards, commented: “The VIBES Awards recognise and showcase the fantastic work being undertaken by businesses across the country to put sustainability at the heart of their operations, often saving money in the process. We’ve been very impressed by the high standard of entries in 2016, and with a record number of companies entering the VIBES Awards this year, it’s encouraging to see that so many businesses understand how reducing their environmental impact can also benefit their business. We would like to congratulate Veracity and all of our 2016 winners and finalists and hope that many more companies will be inspired to follow in their footsteps by recognising the benefits of sustainability in business.”

Alongside winning the Environmental Product or Service Award, Veracity was also shortlisted in the VIBES Innovation category and will now go forward to the larger-scale European awards which take place in 2017.

*VIBES is a strategic partnership between the Scottish Environment Protection Agency, the Scottish Government, Scottish Water, Scottish Enterprise, Highland and Islands Enterprise, Zero Waste Scotland, the Energy Saving Trust and Scotland’s 2020 Climate Group. The awards are further supported by CBI Scotland, the Institute of Directors, the Federation of Small Businesses, Bright Green Business and Quality Scotland
