The Awards is delighted to be associated with CCTNE, the world’s leading sustainable publication addressing climate change and progress to a green economy. CCTNE promote independent and informed discussion on issues related to climate change, especially the implementation of innovation technology, through high quality publications aimed at political business leaders and opinion formers. The objective of the publication is to reach the widest possible audience in order to present a clear and accessible argument from established leaders in their fields, to help prevent catastrophic climate change, working with the G8, G20 and the UNFCCC (COP’s).
Gary Nichols-Roth, the publication’s Managing Editor, commented: “It is our responsibility to help turn the tide of global warming, by investing in R & D. New technologies will and have surfaced; great strides have been made in renewable energy solutions, clean technologies, progressive legislation and finance, but more needs to be done. As we strive to reach at times seemingly impossible targets, it is important that Industry, Governments, NGOs and the world’s thought leaders are recognised and acknowledged for their tireless efforts. This is where CCTNE and the International Green Awards™ have a clear synergy and we are proud as a team to jointly host the International Green Awards™.”
