A local man has been recognised with the prestigious Environmental Professional of the Year award.
Jerome Baddley from Edwalton received the award from the Society for the Environment at an event in Kew Gardens, attended by minister for DEFRA Therese Coffey.
The award showcases the achievements of those striving to protect and enhance the environment on a daily basis and attracts a diverse range of outstanding nominations each year from across sectors and continents.
Jerome’s work on the Nottingham 2020 Energy Strategy and with the Nottinghamshire NHS and local businesses was recognised, as well as his current national role in helping the NHS combat climate change, plastics waste and other challenges.
The judges noted that he cycles to every meeting and even turned up in the rain with his bike to the award ceremony.
