UK - Dawn Meats won the Best Short Term Energy and Carbon Management category at the Sustainability Champions Awards 2013, held recently at Lord’s Cricket Ground in London.

The Irish based meat processor won for its project, which employs NASA technology in the heating system to reclaim energy from boilers and heat water resulting in thermal energy reduction across five of its sites.

The 2degrees Awards are one of the world’s largest online network of sustainability professionals.

The awards are specially selected and voted for by 32,000 members of the 2degrees community, who recognise the best in sustainability practice across all business sectors.

This award has recognised and rewarded Dawn Meats for pushing the boundaries in developing and executing this innovative sustainability initiative that has delivered efficiency within the operations of the business itself and real value to the 2degrees community.

Charlie Coakley, Dawn Meats Environmental Sustainability Manager said: “It is an honour to be recognised by our peers in sustainability.

“The award is testament to the ongoing work by our sustainability teams across our business.”
