Innovation & Sustainability Awards announced
Winners of the Innovation & Sustainability Awards (ISAs) 2010 have been announced.
The ISAs - organised in association with Energy Solutions, Total Workplace Management and M&E: The Building Services Event - celebrate 'innovative and sustainable products and services that support the effective and efficient management of an organisation, workplace or building'.
Among this year's winners were:
· Best innovation in green products or services
SenseLogix's entry won this category because of 'its wide applicability to many businesses along with its ability to be retrofitted with minimum disruption'.
· Best innovation in energy management
Datum Phase Change
This product was chosen 'as it demonstrates a real attempt at beating one of the largest problems buildings will face in the future: overheating and over-dependence on air conditioning. The company is making use of some of the latest materials available but using them in a straightforward, easy-to-install solution'.
· Best innovation in FM services
Judges felt that Interserve brought true innovation to sustainability with the launch of RENEWABLES, a practical guide presented in an innovative format. 'Organisations using RENEWABLES are already showing substantial reductions in carbon emissions and operating costs,' they said.
· Best innovation in building services
The judges were enthusiastic about Hoval's biomass boiler, its the new filter and the fact that it can be retrofitted to existing biomass systems.
· Outstanding contribution to the industry
