Newlands wins national award.



Newlands Adventure Centre is delighted to announce that is has been awarded the 2015 Small and Medium Enterprise Love Energy Award.

The awards, launched by energy price comparison specialists Love Energy Savings, aimed to highlight the most energy-savvy businesses from all over the UK and recognise them for their dedication to energy efficiency.

Rik Beament, Newlands Adventure Centre said “We were surprised when we were nominated but even more so to win an award at a national level. It is reassuring to know that all the hard work we put into our sustainability practices is working and our efforts are being recognised. We would like to encourage other businesses to look at what they could do to be more energy efficient. We have saved money and reduced our carbon footprint and all without huge capital investments like bio-mass or solar: little steps can make a huge change.”

Phil Foster, CEO of Love Energy Savings, said: “The Love Energy Awards honour organisations who consistently go the extra mile to create a more energy-efficient business. Since 2011, Newlands Adventure Centre has taken a number of different approaches to becoming a greener business. From increasing their recycling efforts, fitting energy-saving measures throughout the centre and making simple changes such as switching off lights, they have managed to save £2,635 on their annual energy bills”.

“Newland Adventure Centre’s sheer level of dedication to energy efficiency was overwhelming, especially as only four years ago they weren’t a green business at all. They have proven that anyone can transform their business and reap the rewards.”
