SWM member the Midlands Environmental Business Company’s Business Success Awards

Two new awards aimed at the Birmingham business community are designed to stimulate interest and activity in new business opportunities that are arising as society moves to become low carbon and sustainable.

Current estimates are that the global market for low carbon environmental goods and services is worth nearly £4 trillion. One award will be for innovation in product or service and the other for business growth in the low carbon sector.

Promoting the awards is the Midlands Environmental Business Company (MEBC), the Midlands’ longest running business network to focus on sustainable development and low carbon issues.

In 2011, MEBC is celebrating its 20th anniversary and its annual Business Success Dinner, staged in the Banqueting Suite of Birmingham Council House on 7 December, is attracting senior representatives of the business and political communities of the area.

The awards will be presented at the dinner where the winning companies will be able to promote themselves. They will also be given space on the MEBC’s website. Visit the MEBC website for further information and application forms. Apply by 31 October.
