Eco Trans - Sponsoring a Greener Future
As advances in communications technology open up more and more business opportunities across the planet, it’s refreshing to celebrate the work of companies who are helping to safeguard it. Multi-award winning translation and voiceover specialist Eco Trans is a long standing champion of environmentally friendly business practice, and their sponsorship of the Rushlight Awards is the latest in a long line of initiatives which have helped ethical businesses to take their products to market throughout the world. The awards honour companies whose efforts and innovations bring direct benefits to the environment. Almost thirty award categories cover a wide range of businesses and ecological contributions, and Eco Trans is a prominent contributor to this year’s £500,000 prize fund. The awards dinner will take place in Westminster on Wednesday February 1st.
The Eco Trans prize winner will receive a free translation of any description involving any language combination. The translation, whether it be technical, legal, website or indeed any type of translation, It will be approximately 10,000 words and last year was a very popular prize. As more and more clients in the renewable energy sector seek out new markets, dealing with new cultures and working in new languages, the Eco Trans prize offers a golden opportunity for business development. Director Anna Bastek sees this as a natural partnership: “Eco Trans was founded with the aim of providing a specialised translation service to the renewable energy and environmental sectors. Our sponsorship of the Rushlight Awards allows us to pay tribute to the ethical, far sighted businesses that offer a valuable counterweight to the effects of climate change. This year’s awards ceremony promises to be a celebration of achievements and values that we can all be proud of”.
Eco Trans practices what it preaches. The company has implemented environmental standard ISO 14001 and is proactively promoting environmentally friendly behaviour amongst its staff. At the same time, the company has seen a massive increase in turnover and profitability. Like the prospective winners of its award, Eco Trans demonstrates that with the right combination of commercial acumen and ethical consideration, “good guys” can finish first.
Anna Bastek sees the Rushlight Awards as an annual highlight:
“We believe in going the extra mile for our clients, and we also believe it’s possible to walk that mile with a very light footprint. Like everyone else, we look forward to finding out who the award winners will be, but we already know that the nominees, attendees and sponsors are collectively proving that good practice means good business. We work with clients every day whose ethics help to make the world greener and safer. The Rushlight Awards honours those clients and others like them, and we’re proud to be their sponsor”.
