GreenValue receives Winchester City Council’s Green Impact Scheme award
GreenValue is one of the first businesses in Winchester to participate in the new City Council led Green Impact Scheme.
The scheme has a number of areas that businesses can address and against each one are a series of actions that the business can choose to take. As the business moves through the different levels, from bronze to silver and then gold, the actions become more substantial.
On Friday 23 June 2017, the council held the awards ceremony for participants of the scheme and we were pleased to receive our award. We have been working towards Bronze this year and have plans to move to Silver next year.
GreenValue attends edie.live
The annual business sustainability exhibition, edie.live, was held at the NEC in Birmingham on Tuesday 23 May and Wednesday 24 May. GreenValue’s Peter and Mark went along on the Wednesday and had some really interesting discussions with companies and organisations including Cloud Sustainability, EcoCooling, Energy Metering Technology, Fleetdrive electric, Helistrat, matt:e, Munters, PCMG, PlanetMark and Solxenergy. We’re now having some interesting follow-up discussions.
GreenValue completes first two pilot assessments – but we’re looking for more
At time of writing, May 2017, we are looking to pilot our software tools with a number of clients – at no charge of course. This is to help us refine the tools before we formally launch them. We have completed two pilot assessments with Whitwam and iDaCs, locally in Hampshire and produced the follow-up report and performance dashboard indicating the sustainabilty index in a number of categories and where the opportunities are to carry out green projects which will provide a payback to the business.
Paul Cattell, the MD of iDaCs, said
“iDaCs provide superior cabling solutions to customers in the UK and Ireland. We aim to be as green as we can and we were particularly interested in GreenValue’s offer, as our office and warehouse in Chandlers Ford is generally expensive to run being cold in the winter and too hot in the summer. We found it interesting going through the assessment questionnaire with GreenValue, as it not only highlighted some obvious savings, but also showed us new possibilities too. A good use of an hour”
If you would like have a free pilot assessment, then please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org
GreenValue Director, Peter Richardson, becomes a trustee of WinACC
Our director, Peter Richardson, has been working with the local environmental charity, WinACC (Winchester Action on Climate Change) for seven years and on 8 May 2017, was appointed as one of the charity’s trustees. Peter commented:
“I am delighted to take on this new role especially at this interesting time at WinACC when it is appointing a new executive director and is looking to re-energise and re-direct its impact in the local community. WinACC has achieved a lot since it started nearly 10 years ago, but there is still a lot to do”
