Anne Veck Oxford wins 2nd green business award this year!
Anne Veck’s Oxford salon has scooped its 2nd green business award and 3rd business award of 2017 at the prestigious National Hairdressers’ Federation Business Awards!
It has been announced that we beat finalists from across the country to win the Most Environmentally Friendly Business category. We collected the award at a glittering ceremony held at the VOX conference centre in Birmingham on Sunday 19 November 2017, which also celebrated the industry organisation’s 75th anniversary. .
NHF president Agnes Leonard commented: “Our winners have worked extremely hard to get to where they are today, so we wanted to use the Business Awards as an opportunity to recognise their success.
“Receiving a national business award is a huge achievement for Anne Veck salons so they should be thrilled with what they have achieved”
And we are!
We refitted the salon to feature as many environmentally positive features as possible back in January 2013 and followed up by entering 3 categories in the British Hairdressing Business Awards that year and in 2014. We got to the finals but didn’t win, so owners Anne and Keith are now very happy to have received 3 hair industry accolades 4 years on! Making the salon more green and sustainable is an on-going process, with recent innovations including carbon neutral broadband and telephony as well as (very soon we hope) partnering with the world’s greenest printers for all our future stationery!
