Drinks Business 2015Carbon Zero Consulting is delighted to announce that it is sponsoring The Renewable Energy Implementation Award, a newly created category at The Drinks Business Green Awards 2015 taking place on 21st April at The Ivy in London. Furthermore, John Findlay MSc CEng, Managing Director of Carbon Zero Consulting, has agreed to form part of the independent panel of sustainability and drinks industry experts responsible for judging the prestigious awards.

The Drinks Business Green Awards 2015 is the world’s largest programme to raise awareness of green issues in the drinks trade and recognise and reward those who are leading the way in sustainability and environmental performance. This year, The Drinks Business Green Awards encourage companies to decrease their impact on the environment.

More specifically, The Renewable Energy Implementation Award, sponsored by Carbon Zero Consulting, will be looking for examples demonstrating a strong reduction in carbon emissions and use of fossil fuels and instead, adoption of renewable technologies to provide alternative sources of heat, power and cooling.

John Findlay, Managing Director, Carbon Zero Consulting says, “We’re thrilled to be involved with this year’s Drinks Business Green Awards and delighted to have our own category. With the evidence for climate change and its potentially devastating consequences continuing to build, there is a growing need to bring renewable technologies, such as Ground Source Heating and Cooling to the table and to recognise companies in the drinks industry that are already addressing these issues.

Mr Findlay continues, “We will be looking for a company able to demonstrate its ongoing commitment to the implementation of viable alternative sources of power, heat and cooling. In short, the panel is looking for innovative implementation, potentially using combinations of technologies to reduce or completely remove the need for fossil fuel derived energy.”

As a Chartered Engineer, with more than 32 years of professional experience working with blue chip companies from oil exploration to manufacturing and food and drink companies, John has played a major role in the development of Ground Source Heating and Cooling (GSHC) technology with close involvement in many of the UK’s larger public and private sector schemes.
