Eco Plastics has been recognised at the New Energy Awards 2012, where the company was presented with the award for New Energy Deal of the Year.
The award recognises the company that the judges deem to have planned and executed the best acquisition, merger or fundraising during the past 12 months and was given in recognition of Eco Plastics' £24m fundraise to finance its Continuum joint venture with Coca-Cola Enterprises.
Accepting the award, Eco Plastics managing director, Jonathan Short, said: The New Energy Awards is one of the most prestigious and well respected events in the green sector, so this is a huge honour. It's fantastic that the industry values our project finance model.
“UK sustainable packaging has huge growth potential and we hope this expansion will further unlock similar deals in this sector.”
