The Fit for the Future Network set up in 2013 following myself and Keith chatting over a cup of coffee with Simon at Ashden on how we should set up an Environmental solutions network which Dispels myths and demonstrates that the charity sector can play its part in meeting the challenges posed by climate change and finite resource use.

The Network was recognised for its achievements in engaging almost 1,000 environmental practitioners from 106 different organisations in 2015 in order to foster collaboration and knowledge-sharing to drive energy efficiency and sustainability projects.

Judges said of the Network:

“In this highly competitive category, the judges were won over by the reach and ambition of the Fit for the Future Network as it sought to encourage clean tech initiatives amongst both National Trust staff and wider stakeholders. The judges were particular impressed by the ‘environmental dating agency’s’ expansion to take in 80 members and almost 1,000 practitioners.”

Fantastic recognition of the hard work carried out by Chloe Hampson and Sophie McGovern who manage the network, and we are especially proud and honoured  when you look at the  fantastic works undertaken by the other shortlistlisted  campaigns which include the Bank of America, Royal Bank of Scotland, JLL and Aldi.BG awards room

We’d like to thank all those involved for engaging in the spirit of openness, honesty and sharing to make headway in tackling climate change and increasing resilience over the past three years.

Now time for another coffee!
