Keegans are pleased to announce that Fife HARCA has been recognised as one of the Champions of Business sustainability at the 15th annual Vision in Business for the Environment of Scotland (VIBES) Awards.

Keegans & Sister Company ECD worked in partnership with Fife HARCA (and Ore Valley HA) for the regeneration of Lochgelly including the town master plan, new build housing, the Lochgelly Business Centre (a ‘business incubator’ to accelerate the successful growth of entrepreneurial companies), and the Miners Institute (the conversion of a Grade B listed historic building into an education / training centre). Keegans & ECD successfully designed and project managed the Lochgelly Business Centre which has helped rebuild and regenerate the area.

The VIBES Awards is Scotland’s leading environmental awards scheme. The Awards recognise businesses that contribute to the country’s sustainable development by taking significant steps to improve or reduce their impact on the environment.

The awards aim to encourage efficient use of resources, enhance business competitiveness, improve environmental performance and support wider sustainable development goals.

Gillian Bruce, Chair of the VIBES Awards, commented: “Each of our winners deserve credit for the work they are doing to improve their company’s bottom line through sustainable practices.

The VIBES judges were consistently impressed by the lengths that the winning companies have gone to in order to put environmentally responsible practices at the centre of their business operations.”
