In the UK, Unox expects to move into new, sustainable headquarters in early 2022, built to a carbon neutral specification including solar panels on the roof, electric car charge points, heat pump and other eco-friendly features including carbon neutral paint and floor coverings.

Unox UK MD Scott Duncan was on hand last night to pick up the trophy. He commented: “Sustainability is a global project that Unox is really behind. As the category said, it is a multi-million pound project, not only globally for us but also in the UK and you’ll see some further news in 2022 to give more on that.”
