TGQ is a finalist for the Peer Awards

The Triple Glazing Question (TGQ) is a finalist in The 2014 Peer Awards for Excellence in Corporate Responsibility.

The industry initiative led by Edgetech UK, a Quanex company, made the top grade in the Education of the Community category.    On 24 June Edgetech’s Managing Director Andy Jones and Marketing Coordinator Charlotte Davies presented the TGQ’s entry to other finalists in the category at the Royal Bank of Scotland Head Office on Bishopsgate in London.

Andy Jones explains why it was important to enter TGQ into these awards: “TGQ was a collaboration in the industry and we believed this way of working would be interesting and relevant to other companies and organisations. Getting to the finals means top level recognition for the successful event.”

The Peer Awards recognise those people and organisations that are developing inspirational initiatives that improve life for customers, businesses and society. Andy adds: “At the Peer Conference all the finalists get together to present ideas to each other. There’s diversity in the entries that you just wouldn’t get elsewhere. In our group – Educating the Community – we were up against British Gas and The Royal College of General Practitioners. Other finalists included British Airways, Sainsburys, SAP and Phillips.

“Our entry went through the reasoning behind creating the TGQ and how we managed to deliver it to such a wide audience. We were promoting the idea of working in collaboration with other companies in the industry. This was well received and we took many questions from the floor afterwards.

“It was a very interesting day. The winners are announced on Monday 22 September. But against such a high calibre of companies we believe getting to the finalists category is winning in itself.”
