Green award for Lincoln company

Sadler Road-based company e2v in Lincoln has won a place in the Sunday Times Best Green Companies awards. The company was ranked 34th of a total of 60 businesses.

The awards set out to identify and celebrate the achievements of British businesses that are striving to improve their environmental performance.

E2v has had a presence in Lincoln for 46 years, designing, developing and manufacturing microwave frequency based high technology products for the world’s largest system companies.

Only those organisations demonstrating the highest environmental standards with workforces wholly engaged with their green initiatives make it onto the list.

Maureen Raphael, Group Health Safety & Environmental Manager at e2v, commented “Engaging our employees is central to the success of our environmental processes and systems and this award clearly demonstrates that our people support, understand and contribute to their effectiveness.

“This result could not have been achieved without our employees personally responding, therefore I consider this an award that everyone here can truly take credit for.”

E2v opened in March its new microwave technology centre on Sadler Road, employing 60 people, the majority of whom are specialist engineers and scientists, responsible for designing and developing technology solutions.
