This award is open to organisations in Ireland with 50+ full time employees who can demonstrate effective sustainable energy initiatives.
The judges will want to know everything you do in order to reduce your energy use and carbon dioxide emissions. You must explain what you have achieved so far, particularly over the last 12 months, and what you hope to achieve in the future. And we need to see evidence of an overall strategy that sets out your targets and how you plan to achieve them and hard statistics demonstrating year-on-year comparisons.
Entry is by a 5-page A4 PDF submission; the judges will be looking for a clear plan and evidence that it is delivering on core objectives, paying particular attention to the criteria listed below.
- Reduction of reliance on fossil fuels
- Sustainability of the alternative energy supply
- Savings in CO2 emissions
- Staff engagement
- Effects on local community
