Knauf Insulation Puts Energy into Award Sponsorship
By Anonymous on January 20, 2014

Knauf Insulation is sponsoring the Small to Medium Business category at the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority (EECA) Awards.

The event celebrates the achievements of local companies from high-achieving businesses to individuals by recognising their efforts in optimising energy efficiency and renewable energy. The awards are broken down into 10 categories ranging from Community to Large Businesses. This year EECA have included a special one-off category recognising the achievements of the Christchurch Earthquake Recovery.

EECA Chief Executive Mike Underhill said: “We’re delighted that Knauf Insulation has returned to sponsor the Small to Medium Business category in our 2014 EECA Awards. Smaller businesses are the engine of our economy. A lower carbon, energy-efficient small business sector can play a major role in boosting national competitiveness. In supporting this Award, Knauf Insulation is demonstrating its own leadership on energy efficiency and sustainability.”

This exclusive event will be held on the 28th May 2014 at the Auckland Museum. Amongst the 400 guests expected to attend the awards will be Minister of Energy and Resources Simon Bridges, who may present the Supreme Award, which is selected from all category winners.

Knauf Insulation‘s sponsorship to the EECA Awards is testament to their commitment to promoting energy efficiency in New Zealand. In 2010 the company provided free insualtion to New Zealand’s coldest town, Ophir, helping residents realise the energy savings and thermal comfort of a fully insualted home.
