Dawn Meats, one of Europe’s leading meat processors, has had its hard work in achieving an ISO 14001 certification for Environmental Management rewarded by being crowned winner of the “Best Short Term Energy and Carbon Management” category at the 2Degrees Sustainability Champions Awards 2013.

Dawn Meats is certified for Environmental Management in five sites throughout the UK and Ireland by leading ISO Certification body Certification Europe. In each of the sites it employs technology that was developed by NASA. This advanced heating system reclaims energy from boilers and uses this to heat water, resulting in thermal energy reductions, helping save energy, money and the environment.

Charlie Coakley, environmental sustainability manager at Dawn Meats, says “It is an honour to be recognised by our peers in sustainability. The award is testament to the on-going work by our sustainability teams across our business.”

2Degrees is one of the world’s largest online networks of sustainability professionals. These awards are specially selected and voted for by 32,000 members of the 2Degrees community, recognising best practice sustainability across all business sectors.

Established in 1980, Dawn Meats Group forms part of the Queally Group, Ireland’s largest privately owned agri-business. Dawn Meats in both Ireland and the UK processes in excess of 500,000 cattle and 750,000 lambs per year from which it produces 200,000 tonnes of added value meat products including 55,000 tonnes of consumer packs which are delivered daily to Europe’s leading retail and food service outlets.
