As part of the British Chambers of Commerce’s annual Chamber Business Awards 2022, Marlec Engineering, the UK’s longest established renewable energy company, has won the Planet Saver award.

The awards, now in its 19th year, is one of the showpieces of the business calendar, highlighting the role of firms in delivering growth and prosperity for the UK and local communities. The Planet Saver award recognises the work of an organisation with sustainability at the heart of their business. They are fully committed to sustainable best practice and making the world a better and safer place.

Marlec Engineering, a member of the Northamptonshire Chamber of Commerce, has been crowned the Green Business of the Year for their commitment to the fight against climate action. Not only do they have sustainability at the heart of what they do, they are creating environmentally friendly alternative solutions for other businesses across industries and sectors.

Sarah Howard, Chair of the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) said: 

“Marlec Engineering has been making our local economies and communities greener places to live and work for over four decades. Specialising in the manufacturing and development of wind and solar solutions, they help power infrastructure from street lighting and CCTV, to sailing ships and environmental monitoring equipment.

“This business practices what they preach, paving the way for other firms to follow. All company vehicles are powered using 100% renewable energy, their office and factory lights are sourced from highly efficient LED lighting, and even the paper in the office is shredded and recycled. This is a business truly committed to sustainability, having earned their gold-star reputation over 44 years of promoting the planet.”

Congratualtions to Marlec Engineering from everyone at the Northamptonshire Chamber of Commerce.
