Winner of the 2022 Environmental Sustainability Award


About Tommy:

Since 2002 Tommy’s company Forth Resource Management has provided a sustainable recycling solution for garden waste generated across South East Scotland and currently handles 70,000 tonnes per annum. His recycling process produces high quality compost, which is sold back under the Caledonian Horticulture banner to gardeners, landscapers and farmers.

What the judges said:

“Another great entry, different from the rest. Great vision and a green perspective.”

“Very clear articulation to contribution to UN sustainable development goals.”

What Tommy said:

“To win the first ever Alumni Entrepreneur Network award for Environmental Sustainability means a great deal to me. The idea to start an organics recycling company directly stemmed from a college project on farm diversification.”
