Bitrez Ltd Scoops Silver Business Award at Glittering Ceremony in London!
Bitrez Ltd was a winner at the Business Champion Awards in London on Wednesday, 23 March, hosted by BBC TV news presenter Huw Edwards. The company was a Silver award winner in the category.
The event took place at The East Wintergarden in London’s Canary Wharf, two years to the day since Britain was placed into lockdown and business owners nationwide feared for their survival chances.
It was a carbon neutral event, and all suppliers had sustainable practices in place, while the awards process and carbon footprint from it was kept to a minimum by moving judges’ presentation days to online zoom calls. This move alone saved over 1,000 people travelling to London. As a company, awards organisers the Capital Business Media Group is carbon neutral; everything that can be moved online has been, and anything that’s needed to be printed has been done so on FSC protected recycled and recyclable paper stocks.
And to honour Her Majesty’s Jubilee campaign to plant more trees in 2022, each winner will have ten trees planted in its geographical region within the UK.
There were nine categories and 11 winners at last night’s ceremony:
- Business Innovation of the Year
- Young Entrepreneur of the Year
- Exporter of the Year
- SME of the Year
- New Business of the Year
- Growth Business of the Year
- Sustainable Business of the Year
- Champions in a Crisis
