The ERDF funded Built Environment Climate Change Innovations project has been awarded the prestigious silver Green Apple Award in recognition of its contributions to Environmental Best Practice.
Launched in 1994 the Green Apple Environment Awards is now established as one of the world’s most influential environmental campaigns, aiming to locate and recognise Britain’s greenest companies, councils and communities. The Awards are organised by The Green Organisation and supported by the Environment Agency, the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health, the Chartered Institution for Wastes Management and other independent bodies.
The BECCI project competed against more than 500 other nominations in the 2014 Green Apple Awards. The project will now feature in The Green Book, the leading international work of reference on environmental best practice, to enable others to follow its example and learn from the project’s achievements.
Project Manager, Glenn Barrowman said, “As the University of Opportunity, in addition to our teaching responsibilities, we strive to create bridges between our academic researchers and industry. The BECCI project does that by improving the business performance of our client companies and helping our clients to get their low carbon products into mass market housing”.
The Green Apple awards are organised by The Green Organisation, an independent, non-political, non-activist, non-profit environment group dedicated to recognising, rewarding and promoting environmental best practice around the world.
