BAHBA's carbon balanced through CLEVEL's rainforest project

Brighton & Hove Business Awards Introduce a Carbon-Balanced Scheme for 2007

Organisers of the 2007 Brighton & Hove Business Awards - the BAHBAs - have just announced that the Awards ceremony will be the first of its kind in the south east to be carbon balanced.

Working with local experts in carbon balancing, C LEVEL, the organisers have arranged trees to be planted in its rainforest restoration projects in East Africa. New firewood efficient cooking stoves in the same region are also being commissioned and designed to compensate for CO2, as well as providing other ecological and social benefits on the ground. In addition, all food to be served at the event will be locally sourced, thus further reducing the BAHBA carbon footprint.

Commenting on the event, Anne Busfield from the Brighton Hilton Metropole, said: "When we first heard about this event being carbon balanced we were really excited. With so many local businesses attending the BAHBAs it offers us the perfect opportunity to really showcase our wares and show the Brighton business community what the Hilton Metropole can do!"

C LEVEL was one of the UK's first companies to promote action on climate change and has been offering Carbon Balancing services to business in Brighton and nationally for six years. Daren Howarth from C LEVEL said: "We have been putting in place tools to do practical things about climate change for years now, and it's great that mainstream hotels, such as the Hilton, are now starting to get involved in understanding and balancing events they host. Anyone can now run balanced events with us - it's just a matter of a few clicks on our events calculator on the C LEVEL website".

The Awards ceremony takes place on Thursday 20 September 2007, and closing date for entries is Thursday 12 July.
