The exhibition centre has worked with the conservation charity for the past three years and is committed to planting a number of groves for events booked at the venue.

Trees for Life executive director and founder Alan Watson Featherstone accepted the accolade from SECC sales director Ben Goedegebuure at the charity's Dundreggan Estate where the trees have been planted.

Goedegebuure said: "Corporate and social responsibility continue to grow in importance for our clients, visitors and staff. We're really proud of our green credentials; it gives us the chance to balance any negative effects our events have on the environment. Everyone at the SECC is incredibly proud of the massive contribution our venue has made to Trees for Life."
The SECC is announcing 25 Champions throughout its 25th anniversary celebrations for people and organisations that have contributed to the venue's success.
