Returning for 2023 at the South Coast & Green Tech Boat Show (21-23 April), MDL’s Green Innovator Award is open for nominations.
Now in its second year, the award’s purpose is to distinguish products and services that are pioneering in sustainability, innovation and design. It is aimed at projects from both start-ups and established companies, and highlights suppliers who are making a special effort towards environmentally sustainable practices and product development.
Nominations are now open to every company exhibiting at South Coast & Green Tech Boat Show, or any other business or organisation which has shown initiative in reducing its impact on the environment. The winner of the 2023 Green Innovator Award will be announced on Saturday 22 April during the show which is hosted at MDL’s flagship Ocean Village Marina in the heart of Southampton.
“The driver behind the creation of the Green Tech Boat Show, and its move to Southampton as an integral part of our popular South Coast Boat Show, was to shine a light on the emerging green technology and promote sustainable boating,” says Tim Mayer, Sales and Marketing Director at MDL Marinas.
“The Green Innovator Award takes this one step further and publicly recognises the individual businesses and organisations for their endeavours in this arena, helping combat climate change and making boating as eco-friendly as possible.”
Last year, the first Green Innovator Award was presented to ePropulsion UK, distributor of ePropulsion’s electric marine products across the UK, with Pixii Electric Boats coming in a very close second with its electric boats built using recycled materials. Both companies will be exhibiting again at the 2023 South Coast & Green Tech Boat Show.
The Green Innovator Award is voted for by the public. You can nominate a business or cast a vote, by visiting the MDL website. Voting closes on Friday 21 April 2023 and the winner will be announced on Saturday 22 April in the Innovation Hub at the South Coast & Green Tech Boat Show.
Tickets to the South Coast & Green Tech Boat Show are free and can be booked via the MDL website. Appointments to view specific boats or meet with the individual exhibitors can also be arranged via a booking portal from 1 February 2023.
