Carbon Free Group shortlisted for Sustainable Business of the Year award

We are delighted that Carbon Free Group has been shortlisted by sustainability website Edie in its 'Mission Possible: Sustainable Business of the Year Award 2019' category.

Carbon Free Group will be competing with eight other businesses including Heathrow Airport and Proctor & Gamble Family Care for the prestigious award, with the winners announced at the Edie Sustainability Awards Ceremony in London on 6th February 2019. These awards are widely seen as the UK's largest and most prestigious sustainability awards, recognising excellence across the full spectrum of green business.

Central to this nomination has been our change in status from a Limited company to a Community Interest Company (CIC), which has raised our profile and accelerated our ability to promote improved carbon management with both members and collaborators. Equally important has been the development of novel housing approaches, including 47 low carbon energy efficient houses in Corby and a similar sized development in Brenchley, Kent.

Anthony Morgan, Co-Founder of Carbon Free Group commented:

"We work relentlessly to develop new, fit for the future carbon emission reduction solutions. Changing our business model was a bold move but has paid off. It has given us the freedom to develop new collaborations and stimulate new innovations which we believe will prove transformational in years to come.

"Being recognised by Edie shows how far we've come as a CIC and highlights our massive future potential."
