The prestigious Environment and Energy Awards were held on 22nd May at the National Motorcycle Museum in Birmingham, where presenter Dominic Holland presented the SME Award for Energy Efficiency to the Alumet Group. Other finalists on the night included the likes of Willmott Dixon, B&Q, Tesco, Sainsbury, Amey, BAM and The Environment Agency.
Alumet were awarded for their commitment to the environment which has seen them both expand their product range to include renewable technologies as well as heavily investing in their operations to minimise their carbon footprint. Head Judge Martin Fry commented "Alumet are an organisation who actively engage in the uptake of small scale renewables and energy efficiency as well as promoting the green agenda to other businesses and educational organisations. Our judging team think their commitment is second to none."
Alumet's Sustainability Office Eleanor Stewart collected the award on behalf of the company and said "Myself and the team at Alumet have been working tirelessly over the past year to offer an exceptional range of products and services while always ensuring our company operations create the minimal amount of damage to the environment. It is very gratifying to receive this award and we look forward to developing our standards further in the coming year."
