CITYMATTERS.LONDON 18 - 31 July 2018 | Page 7 Business Matters INNOVATORS TAKE CENTRE STAGE AS THE FOCUS FALLS ON SUSTAINABILITY A FOOD sharing app, a cable that turns street lights into electric vehicle charging stations, and a zero-waste hotel were just a few pioneering concepts recognised at London’s most famous ‘green carpet’ awards bash. Judges and shortlisted entrants flocked to The Crystal, Siemens’ sustainable exhibition centre, on 12 July for the 2018 instalment of the Sustainable City Awards, created by the City Corporation and now led by London Sustainability Exchange. Each year the ceremony seeks to honour forward-thinking projects and initiatives concocted by businesses, charities and community groups as well as public sector organisations. The latest batch of innovators were presented with their gongs by Shirley Rodrigues, the deputy mayor of London for environment and energy. Achievements “I’d like to congratulate all of the winners on their fantastic achievements,” she said. “The Mayor is committed to protecting and improving London’s environment, as well as making the most of the social and economic opportunities it brings. “[The] winners – and all the shortlisted entrants – demonstrate exactly the kind of innovation and leadership that will help us make London greener, cleaner and ready for the future.” Awards were presented across five categories, including Sustainable Mobility, Innovative Spaces, Managing Resources, Healthier City, and Smart Technology, with an overall winner and three recipients of the Sir Peter Parker Award, which recognises firms that have successfully set new standards of innovation, performance and environmental leadership. Repowering London’s Energy Garden, the cream of the crop: some of the sharpest minds in the Capital were recognised at the ceremony Green carpet affair world’s first city-wide combined community energy and gardening project, was hailed outright champion on the night. By engaging with local communities, landowners and businesses, the project aims to create a network of interconnected community Energy Gardens at London’s Overground rail stations. “These awards are utterly unique – no other scheme recognises what a small community group can do, on the same platform as a multi-national corporation,” said Samantha Health, who is the chief executive of London Sustainability Exchange. This year’s winners have shown creativity and grit in spades.” THE BIG WINNERS Sustainable Mobility: London Borough of Enfield – Cycle Enfield Innovative Spaces: Demand Logic – Smart Climate Change Mitigation Managing Resources: OLIO – The Food Sharing Revolution Healthier City: Repowering London – Energy Gardens Overall Winner: Repowering London – Energy Gardens Sir Peter Parker Award: Blue Green Global Ltd; WSP; Demand Logic Fed up with the coFFee at work? switch to the world’s best artisan coFFees, made by skilled baristas right in your workplace save your company money too he new b ack coFFee mobile act now. call/email the new black telephone 020 3051 4696 email mobile@thenewblack.coFFee www.thenewblack.coFFee
