As well as the gold award winners various other Glasgow businesses managed to win Silver awards, the Marriott Hotel, Hotel Indigo, Jack and Jill Nursery and the Two Fat Ladies restaurant. In the Bronze awards four businesses won awards including Argyle Hotel, Angelbond the seafood supplier and Glasgow Green Apartments in both the East End and West End.
Fiona Ashford from Stravaigin told the Evening Times "We have used LED lights, old soda bottles as light features and have sensor taps in the toilets which don't waste water.
"Our food waste is separated and 80% is recycled, the front of the new bar is made from old close doors and the parquet flooring was taken from elsewhere and re-used.
"Our chefs go out foraging for things like wild garlic and we try to use local suppliers as much as possible."
Managing director Hans Rissmann of the Blyswood Hotel told the Evening Times "Behind the historical facade of Glasgow's Blythswood Square is a renewable energy supply and environmental appliances that reduce the hotel's energy consumption."The green technology includes rooftop solar panels and nine 100 metre deep bore holes serving two high capacity heat pumps which transport power round the hotel in a loop resulting in little wasted energy.
All of the building's old sash windows have been replaced with highly efficient double glazing.
Energy efficient lighting has been employed, the roof has been designed with a ventilation heat recovery system and external walls have been built extra thick to provide better insulation.
"Over all, our carbon omissions have been reduced by 43% of what we would have had, had we not carried out all of our initiatives."
