Seacourt Limited Wins Another Queens Award for Sustainable Development

Jim Dinnage reports that “Seacourt have been fortunate to win the Queens Award for Sustainable Development 2011. As a result, Gareth and I were invited to Buckingham Palace to meet the Queen and her husband.”

But because Seacourt are one of a very small number of businesses over the previous half century to receive the Queens Award for Sustainability twice, it was decided that Seacourt would receive the award (a large crystal bowl and certificate signed by HRH the Queen and David Cameron) at the factory in Oxford and that it would be presented by Royalty. Consequently on 22nd September 2011 His Royal Highness Prince Edward the Duke of Kent visited the Seacourt factory and presented the award at a special ceremony. Staff and their families, customers and dignitaries (Member of the European Parliament, Lord Lieutenant of Oxfordshire, Mayor of Oxford, Chairman of Oxfordshire County Council) were also present.
Jim Dinnage said in his email “you might be particularly interested to know that HRH was ever so interested in Waterless offset and its benefits and was at a loss to understand why every printer did not use the process! It turned out to be a great day for all.”

Seacourt were interviewed for “Shaping the Big Society” a week long virtual summit – another leading speaker was Vince Cable ( Member of Parliament and a member of our coalition government as Business Secretary). A lot of that interview surrounds Seacourt’s decision to change to Waterless offset.

Our congratulations to Seacourt and its staff for such wonderful environmental accomplishments.
