Two sustainable energy companies won commendations in the first ever ‘Green Supplier and Innovation Award’ at this year’s Showman’s Show. The new stand award was launched to recognise the growing demand for sustainable solutions from event organisers, with Chris Johnson, chair of Powerful Thinking judging the entries.
G Trax was the overall 2015 winner in recognition of their commitment to and understanding of the sustainability of its products. Also commended were Firefly Clean Energy; who are recognised as a market leader and innovator in sustainable energy provision, and Morris Site Machinery for their SMC Solar 2 tower light; a genuinely innovative energy efficiency product, which has ‘infinite runtime’ and is made from 100% recyclable materials.
The Showman’s show has lead by example in valuing the sustainability of events by reducing its fuel use by 50% in one year through efficiency measures. Find out more and to apply for next year’s Showman’s Show Green Innovation Award here.
