CREST Business Awards was adding its voice to a film for the official COP26 website and a chance for delegates to get an insight into the environmentally sustainable initiatives Surrey businesses have embedded into their day-to-day operations.
Representatives from Surrey’s only awards programme focused uniquely on celebrating sustainable businesses have been invited to feature in a film due to be broadcast live on the COP26 website, and potentially live-cast into the COP26 United Nations Climate Change Conference in Glasgow.
The event on Wednesday November 10 will be at an event in rural Surrey’s heartland in Farnham, organised by Surrey County Council.
Its theme is “How to reduce carbon emissions from transport in a rural county”. With this aim CREST has been given the opportunity to showcase possibilities for sustainable travel and transport logistics within Surrey.
Cllr Marisa Heath, Surrey County Council Cabinet Member for Environment, said: “We’re delighted to be headline sponsor for the CREST awards again next year. It’s a great initiative to shine a light on the fantastic work Surrey businesses are doing to reduce their carbon footprint. Supporting the green economy in Surrey is an essential part of helping us achieve our aim of being a net zero carbon county by 2050.”
CREST Business Awards, launched by the Woking News & Mail in association with Surrey University’s Centre for the Environment and Sustainability, is also going to be showcased at the Surrey Climate Change Delivery Plan launch at the Surrey Hills Area of Natural Outstanding Beauty (ANOB) Symposium 2021 on Wednesday 24 November at the University of Surrey. The event will also feature the Surrey Hills Symposium 2021 on “Our Climate and Biodiversity Emergency” with keynote speaker Dr Tony Juniper CBE.
