Manchester’s Carbon Co-op has been long-listed for the presitgous Ashden Awards.
According to the website – “The Awards celebrate global sustainable energy leaders and this year’s longlist ranges from a Malaysian architectural practice specialising in passive design to a UK designer of smart thermostats aimed at social housing…”
Carbon Co-op’s Jonathan Atkinson said on social media that he was “delighted Carbon Co-op have been included in the Ashden Awards long list 2017, it’s a real honour. The shortlist is announced in March.”
Meanwhile Nottingham City Council is also on the long-list. As for Manchester City Council? Totally uninterested in environmental matters, except as a marketing strategy. And even when they were interested back in 2009 or so, they were useless at it. So it goes.
Ha ha! You had me going then. I was thinking,”What kind of useless organisation would give MCC a green award?”
Excellent! I chortled to myself as I wrote it, thinking “I wonder if anyone will go ‘what?!!”
