The Drinks Business Green Awards 2016: the winners

Green Personality of the Year

fiacre-odonnellThis year’s personality has been selected for his single-minded drive to ensure one business lives and breathes sustainability.
Working within a glass filling and logistics company for the past 18 years, our recipient has worked to establish this UK-based operation as one of the most environmentally-friendly in the industry, and played a leading role in creating its sustainability strategy, called Our Sustainable Futures.

Known to some of you in the wine industry, and many of DB’s Green Awards judges, our personality plays an active role in promoting sustainability in the wider glass and drinks industries. He currently holds board level positions with the British Soft Drinks Association and British Glass, and is also a member of the European Container Glass Federation.

He has also helped set up the Collaborative Network, a waste management committee comprised of his own company, along with paper and plastic producers and five local councils in Northern Ireland.

In the spirit of continual improvement, our recipient is currently investigating new initiatives to ensure his company, Encirc, continues to lead the drinks industry in reducing its environmental footprint well into the future.

The Green Personality of the Year for 2016 is…

Fiacre O’Donnell
Head of strategic development, Encirc

    This is such wonderful news, thoroughly deserved as we were able to witness on our visit to you earlier this year, following in John’s footsteps 50 years ago. Mimi and I were very, very grateful you were able to take yourself away from whatever work you were doing at the time to come over and greet us in your exceptionally wonderful winery and vineyard, … thank you again for that!
