The Green Expo Awards Event 2023

November (date tba)

The awards will highlight great work that is making a difference in renewable energy and innovation in Net Zero for organisations, individuals and communities. Winners could be a worldwide organisation or an individual but must have some connection to Cheshire & Warrington in terms of their location or effect.

Awards categories include: Green Startup of the Year (with a ‘Dragon’s Den’ style pitch), Award for Innovation in Energy, Awards for Innovation in the Built Environment, Transportation, Commercial and Industrial Markets and for Community Engagement and Inward Investment (eight in total). The awards are judged by an expert panel of industry leaders and experts in a rigorous two-stage process including pre-scoring to determine shortlists and a judging meeting where entries are discussed and evaluated in detail to decide the winning entries. Feedback is given.

The evening will commence with a sparkling reception, a prestigious welcome address and sit-down three-course dinner for 150 guests from the world of business, industry and academia. It provides an ideal opportunity to network with like-minded business figures, inward investors, leaders and VIPs all focused on the green agenda.

The menu has been selected to represent the very best of what Cheshire and the North West offers in season – locally sourced, reared and grown. It is designed, sourced and served in conjunction with Cheshire College and the hospitality students at this prestigious centre of catering excellence guided by celebrity and award winning executive chef, Brian Mellor.

The Green Revolution

“We have to work together collaboratively to achieve such a massive shift in our behaviour, on energy use, consumption and waste.”

The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.”


The Climate Change Revolution

“The Sun collaborates with the soil to bring plants and flowers to life. We should learn from nature and collaborate more. The North West has great initiatives like HyNet, one of UKGOV’s first two Hydrogen projects.”


The Net Zero Revolution

 “The North West region is a region driving and leading change towards Net Zero and carbon reduction. Its location is ‘investor ready’ for the key technologies needed and can deliver tangible growth, employment opportunities and economic regeneration.”
