Celebrating the achievements of 100 Days of Carbon Reduction

The achievements of low-carbon projects, professionals and pioneers were brought into prominence at the first annual Low Carbon Performance Awards launched by the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers in association with E.ON, one of the UK’s leading electricity and gas companies. The awards aim to reward actual low-carbon performance — not promise — and were presented by world-famous yachtswoman Dame Ellen MacArthur (the only person not brandishing an award in our picture). In particular, the event at London’s Grosvenor House last month, celebrated the achievement of participants in the 100 Days of Carbon Clean Up campaign. Over 700 organisations signed up to the campaign, making a real difference to reducing the amount of carbon emitted from the workplace. Speaking at the awards, CIBSE president John Armstrong said, ‘The awards were a perfect way of ending the 100 Days campaign and celebrating the continuing success of the Low Carbon Consultants register. All the winners have exhibited commitment and determination in ensuring their carbon-saving activities made the greatest impact, and we wish them well in their future initiatives.’ The following pages give an insight into the achievements of the winners of the various categories.
