Akranes Environmental Award goes to HB Grandi
Last Saturday the Akranes municipality announced its environment awards to outstandingly well-kept grounds around private houses and around company and communal buildings. HB Grandi received one of the awards for having one of the best-kept company premises in Akranes.
The awards ceremony took place in the Akranes school of music at midday on Saturday, with the award received on behalf of the company by Daníel Haraldsson, technical manager at HB Grandi’s Akranes factory.
In recent months HB Grandi has been behind a concerted drive to clean up Akranes, following its purchase of ground at the Breiði business area. A great deal of effort has been put into clearing up the area, painting buildings and making the overall environment more attractive. Iron and other scrap metal that has been allowed to pile up has been removed. Those with homes of businesses in the are have also joined in with the effort to improve the environment.
Daníel Haraldsson has been heavily involved in these initiatives that are a credit to the company, making the award well deserved.
