Green Gateway approach wins specialist low carbon award
Mitsubishi Electric is on a proactive campaign to get the construction industry to join the debate about renewable technology, and has received a major boost for its cause by securing the Low Carbon category of the CN Specialist Awards.
Green Gateway is Mitsubishi Electric's attempt to use its position as a manufacturer of renewable technology for the building services sector to challenge conventional thinking about energy use and get everyone involved in designing, creating, operating and maintaining our built environment to discuss ways in which the industry can make a difference. At the prestigious annual event, held at London's Hilton Hotel, which is run by Construction News to honor the finest specialist contractors and construction projects, 79 companies competed in 17 categories. The recognition has helped bring broader awareness of the low carbon aims of Green Gateway, that as a sector, the construction industry can play a major role in helping reduce emissions, especially considering that buildings account for 44% of all UK greenhouse gas emissions, more than either industry or transport.
