The award acknowledges Active Stirling’s commitment to improving environmental quality and they are the first leisure trust to receive a Silver Award in Scotland.

The accolade recognises the organisation’s achievements in improving waste management at The PEAK, Stirling Sports Village and its continued commitment to sustainability - from implementing environmental management systems, forging partnerships with the local community and regular training to ensure high levels of customer service.

All entrants are assessed by the Keep Scotland Beautiful Local Environmental Quality Team and can be awarded Bronze, Silver or Gold level.
