Deadline for entries in the UK's most prestigious clean tech awards is 5pm on Friday 6th October
The UK's most exciting clean tech firms have just a week left to submit their entries for this year's prestigious BusinessGreen Technology Awards.
The deadline for entries is 5pm on Friday October 6th with the shortlist set to then be announced in mid-October.
The awards ceremony and lunch will take place on the afternoon of Friday December 1st at the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) in Central London. It will bring together leading clean tech firms, start-ups, investors, and entrepreneurs to celebrate the exciting progress made by the sector in the past year and highlight some of the most inspiring technologies being developed and deployed in the UK today.
"The BusinessGreen Technology Awards are now in their third year and every year we have been blown away by the ingenuity and innovation on display amongst the UK's clean tech community," said BusinessGreen Editor-in-Chief James Murray. "We want to provide the many great companies in this sector with a platform that helps them raise the profile of this most important of industries. I'd urge all clean tech entrepreneurs and investors to join us in celebrating the best the industry has to offer."
Hosted in association with category sponsor Withers and Rogers and Clean+Cool, the awards are free to enter and are open to any company, research body, investor, entrepreneur or innovator with a presence in the UK.
Entries will be judged by our panel of expert judges from across the green economy, including last year's Lifetime Achievement Awards winner Richard Miller, TechUK's Susanne Baker, Dr Mike Pitts from InnovateUK, and Sustainable Ventures' Andrew Wordsworth.
Clean tech firms entering the awards are also invited to join BusinessGreen at our 10th anniversary summit on November 9th, which will bring together thought leaders from across the green economy to discuss the challenges and opportunities the sector faces over the next decade.
