Sustainability Awards launched for 2023

The Business Eye Sustainability Awards, in association with Strategic Power Connect, are due to take place for the first time at the Culloden Estate & Spa on the evening of Thursday, 23rd February, 2023.

Local businesses, and business leaders, will be able to enter a comprehensive range of 13 categories, including awards aimed at sectors such as food & drink, hospitality & tourism, manufacturing and retail.

Top of the bill on the evening will be the announcement of Northern Ireland’s Sustainable Company Of The Year and Business Leader of the Year.

The awards were launched at PwC’s Merchant Square building in Belfast city centre, one of the most advanced office buildings anywhere on the island in terms of its environmentally friendly and sustainable features and facilities.

Keynote sponsors of the new Business Eye Sustainability Awards are Strategic Power Connect, one of Ireland’s leading suppliers of renewable energy solutions to large energy users.

The new awards are being launched and organised by the team at Business Eye, the driving force behind the annual AIB Business Eye Awards and the new Business Eye Family Business Awards.

“We hear so much today about how local businesses are reinventing how they do business to reflect the onus on each and every one of us to make our contribution to a more sustainable environment. Local companies are working hard to make a difference and we felt it was time to recognise those efforts and those achievements,” says Richard Buckley, Editor of Business Eye.

“We’ve had a really high level of interest so far and we’re really looking forward to seeing the entries coming through from local organisations over the coming months.”

Paul Carson, Managing Director, Strategic Power Connect said,

“We are delighted to be the keynote sponsor of the first sustainability awards in Northern Ireland.  Strategic Power Connect are committed to supporting businesses in the north and south of Ireland, achieve their sustainability goals through renewable energy systems and solutions.

Partnering with Business Eye to recognise the best performing businesses in Northern Ireland is a perfect fit for us.  I believe the event will be the highlight of the 2023 NI event calendar and I look forward to reviewing the entries alongside other members of the judging panel.”
