COULD your business be Rugby’s greenest firm?

If your company works hard to save natural resources and promote environmental values then why not enter into the Rugby Business Awards 2012’s Green Business of the Year award?

This year’s black-tie ceremony takes place on Friday June 1 at Dunchurch Park Hotel, with after-dinner star entertainment from Bobby Davro and compere Ian Richards.

The winner of the GE Energy-sponsored Green Business of the Year Award will be the entrant that can prove it has created or adapted its working practices to be as environmentally friendly as possible.

Companies entering are asked to produce written evidence to support their applications.

Examples and testimonials would also help the entry.

Steve Raynor, growth regions leader at GE Energy’s Power Conversion business (formerly Converteam) in Rugby, said: “We’re proud once again to sponsor the Advertiser’s Green Business of the Year award. It’s an opportunity for us all to celebrate what’s best in local business and to recognise local companies that have made a positive contribution to our environment.”

“GE Energy works by connecting people and ideas to create technologies for powering a cleaner, more productive world. It serves the energy sector with the latest technologies in areas such as wind, solar and biogas as well as the more traditional energy sources.
