New awards put Welsh sustainability on a world-class stage
A new awards ceremony aimed at the sustainability and green energy sectors has been announced today. The Sustainable Academy Awards will take place on 29 November in the iconic and low-carbon Principality Stadium in Cardiff and are a collaboration between Cynnal Cymru and RenewableUK Cymru.
The event builds on the success of the Wales Green Energy Awards and the Sustain Wales Awards and will celebrate sustainability excellence, innovation and leadership across Wales. The Awards recognise work being done by individuals, community groups and the public sector, as well as small and large businesses.
Wales & West Utilities has already been confirmed as the headline sponsor of the event with Welsh Government sponsoring the Outstanding Renewable Energy Project, and Natural Resources Wales sponsoring the Sustainability Champion.
“It’s no coincidence that the stadium, host for world-leading acts, superb entertainment and moments of high drama over the years, has been selected as the venue for these new awards” – David Clubb
Mari Arthur, Director of Cynnal Cymru, said:
“The Sustainable Academy is an exciting new initiative, founded by Cynnal Cymru and RenewableUK Cymru to bring together expertise from across the sustainability and green energy sectors in Wales. The Awards are my favourite event each year as we recognise the contribution being made by different sectors to make Wales a sustainable nation, working as one to deliver on the Wellbeing of the Future Generations and Environment Acts.”
Steven Edwards, Director of Regulation and Commercial at Wales & West Utilities, said:
“We’re working hard to deliver a future energy system that is affordable, reliable and sustainable for the communities we serve. So we’re delighted to be the headline sponsor of the Sustainable Academy awards – a wonderful opportunity to recognise and celebrate the hard work being done by so many individuals and organisations, and it is an honour to be part of that.”
