EC-OG have been shortlisted as finalists in the 2018 European Business Awards for the Environment (EBAE), one of eleven British businesses that have been put forward to represent the UK at the Awards.
The European Business Awards for the Environment were launched in 1987, rewarding technological innovations which promote and encourage a more sustainable environment. Organised by the Directorate-General for the Environment European Commission, the Awards play a key role in the European Commission’s mission to promote a circular economy, innovation and participation in green markets across European companies.
EC-OG will participate in the ‘Product’ category for the Subsea Power Hub. Winners will be announced at the Awards Ceremony in November.
Commenting on the announcement of the UK finalists, Scottish Cabinet Secretary for the Environment, Climate Change and Land Reform, Roseanna Cunningham said: “The Scottish Government has a clear vision for a low carbon Scotland. We want to build a country which trains, attracts and retains the businesses and the innovators who will shape the low carbon transition. I hope these businesses will encourage others to think innovatively about how we can create a cleaner, greener, climate-ready Scotland.”
Richard Knox, Managing Director of EC-OG said:
“We are delighted that EC-OG are finalists at the European Business Awards for the Environment. It’s a real honour for the company to represent the UK and to have the work of our high calibre team recognised at a European level.”
