We are proud to announce our Commercial Director, Clive Bonny, won Best Environmental Business of the Year Award at Friday’s Seahaven Business Awards 2018.
The Seahaven Business Awards recognise businesses which have shown tremendous commitment, innovation and inspiration to all around them.
On the judging panel was local MP Maria Caulfield, the Mayor of Newhaven and the presidents of the Newhaven, Peacehaven and Seaford Chambers of Commerce.
The winners were announced at the Gala Dinner on Friday 11 May 2018 and were presented with trophies designed by Newhaven president and goldsmith Mike Shorer.
Clive was recognised for his business Strategic Management Partners, founded in 1990 by Clive and his wife Sue to provide support for business sustainability. SMP’s activities include conservation education in schools, enabling primary and secondary students to remake and recycle clothes. As a result more than 500 students have developed entrepreneurship skills and improved their employability.
Clive also co-founded Rottingdean charity Beacon Hub which has converted 20 acres of unused ground into a free nature reserve which is enjoyed by the public every day – ensuring community health, recreation and environmental education.
Partnering with Green Growth Platform, SMP has helped support more than 200 East Sussex eco-innovation companies, creating hundreds of full-time jobs in environmental products and services.
The Seahaven Business Awards are organised by Newhaven Chamber of Commerce in collaboration with Peacehaven and Seaford Chambers of Commerce.
