Superior Wellness scoops Sustainability Award

21 October 2021

Europe’s largest hot tub and swim spa distributor, Superior Wellness, has been awarded for demonstrating a commitment to sustainable business practices.

Superior Wellness won the Sustainability Award at last night’s Love Chesterfield Awards; the prestigious awards organised by Destination Chesterfield.

This is the first-time sustainability has been recognised in the annual awards. Sponsored by Chesterfield Borough Council, the award is designed to highlight the importance of businesses working towards becoming carbon neutral. 

In their award-winning submission Superior Wellness demonstrated that they measure and report their progress, as well as demonstrating that that have committed to sustainability during the past five years.

Mark Needham, Head of Operations said: “We are absolutely delighted to have won this inaugural award. Sustainability is high on the agenda at Superior Wellness and it became even more important when we moved into our new 130,000 square foot warehouse and office in March.

“Within the last few months, we have reviewed our waste strategy, purchased electric forklift trucks, installed solar panels and have electric charging points. 

“This is just the start as we seek to become more sustainable as a business.  Our ten-year vision is to become carbon neutral.”

Mark Needham, Head of Operations and Sarah Elphick, Head of Marketing, attended the awards ceremony.

Dom Stevens, Destination Chesterfield Manager said: “This year the awards were a celebration on so many levels – recognising entrepreneurial and community spirit, achievement, survival and a marriage proposal – the first in our awards history. I am delighted that the business community was once again able to come together in person, connect with each other and share in each other’s success. It was a brilliant event.”

Councillor Amanda Serjeant, Deputy Leader of Chesterfield Borough Council and Vice Chair of Destination Chesterfield said: “The last 19 months have been a turbulent time for all of us. But our local businesses have shown such resilience; adapting and supporting each other to keep moving forward. They have all achieved so much and inspired others to follow in their footsteps. It is an honour to be able to recognise so many at the Love Chesterfield Awards.”
