Patricia Gordon-Pamplin presenting the award to Greenrock Chairman Nick CampbellAccepting the award was Greenrock Chairman Nick Campbell who said, "Greenrock is delighted to receive this award from KBB. It is always gratifying to be acknowledged for the work that we do but it is particularly rewarding when it is by a peer organisation that we hold in high regard.

"Greenrock is very proud of the work that we have done together with KBB over the past year on the 'No Thanks!' to single-use bags campaign. We are equally proud of our long-standing partnership with KBB on the Bermuda Marine Debris Taskforce and of our collaboration on the Eco-Schools program.

"We look forward to continuing to work with KBB and others to help build an environmentally sustainable Bermuda for all.
