Green for go for Newry firms

Parker Green International and The Quays Shopping Centre have won the “Best Promotion of Sustainable Transport” at this year’s Action Renewables Association Awards. The prestigious event sponsored by Toughans Solicitors took place at Titanic Belfast and it is the largest event of its kind celebrating success in the renewable energy industry in Northern Ireland. Parker Green International and The Quays beat off tough competition to take this award with the judges giving special recognition to the companies for introducing Northern Ireland’s first private commercial workplace travel plan and commenting on how this five year plan actively promotes measures to reduce reliance on private cars and promote public transport, cycling and walking to and from work. Michael Doran Director of Action Renewables said: ” I would like to say a huge congratulations to all of our winners who together are making a significant contribution to the development of the renewable energy industry in Northern Ireland. It is very encouraging to see entry levels to our awards growing each year which in turn demonstrates the increasing commitment by local organisations within the public and private sector to improving their green credentials. These initiatives are proving to be extremely beneficial to businesses and are encouraging investment for the future.”
