The OB10 network saved over 92.2 million sheets of paper and over 2.6 million kilowatts of energy. That was more than enough reason to award OB10 with Britains Green Apple Award for the fifth consecutive year for demonstrating environmental best practice, which this year was a silver award.
Luke McKeever, recently appointed CEO at OB10, said “I’m honoured to receive this award on behalf of OB10 and our customers as we rid the world of paper invoices.”
The editorial team and all of our readers applaud and say: congratulation!
Green Apple Award by the The Green Organisation
Organised by The Green Organisation, an independent, non-profit group dedicated to recognising and promoting environmental best practice, the Green Apple awards are the results of a national campaign to find Britain’s greenest companies, councils and communities.
Roger Wolens, Director at The Green Organisation said. “There are 150 billion paper invoices produced each year and OB10 renders most of them redundant. The judges found that ‘ridding the world of paper invoices’ was not just a slogan, but a definite ambition for OB10”
Luke McKeever, CEO at OB10 added: “As more companies join our network and we develop new services, the environmental benefits we deliver through e-Invoicing we will continue to contribute towards a long-term, sustainable future.”
We wonder who would push OB10 from the throne for next year’s Green Apple election.
UPDATE (17/11): OB10 was also rewarded the Green Supply Chain Award for the second consecutive time.
