Midas Pattern Company are delighted to announce that we have been selected as finalists for not one, but two energy and sustainability focused awards.

The Midas Green Initiative: A Manufacturer’s drive to become Process Carbon Neutral’ has been shortlisted for an Energy Management Award by the Energy Institute

The Energy Institute’s 21st annual awards competition received over 120 entries from across 29 countries so you can imagine how thrilled we are to be shortlisted from so many world class entries.

We entered this award to continue to give voice to our mission, to show case the achievements and progress we have made to date on reducing our carbon footprint and overall energy usage.  As a UK manufacturing company in the plastics industry it is vital that we shine a light on the need to become more environmentally responsible but also highlight the amazing benefits that can be achieved through positive and actionable change.

The EI Awards showcase organisations, projects and individuals of excellence in the energy sector, and the judges were particularly impressed with the high-level of commitment, innovation and potential that we have demonstrated in our entry!  We look forward to the finals which take place on the 26th November and wish all the entries the very best of luck.

The second nomination is for the MAKEuk regional manufacturing awards in the Energy and Sustainability category (Midlands and East of England).

The Energy and Sustainability award has been developed to recognise those in UK manufacturing that have done the most to improve overall environmental performance and enhance sustainability within their manufacturing process.

For the last 12-18 months we have worked tirelessly to reduce our impact on the environment.  Having switched all energy inputs to renewable sources, including investing in our own Solar Farm and tackling waste throughout the process, we are proud to have achieved Process Carbon Neutrality.  Not one to rest on our laurels, we have a firm eye on Product Carbon Neutrality and so to be shortlisted for these awards is testimony to all our hard work and investment to date.

Midas are passionate about reversing Climate Change and proud to be a UK manufacturing company producing RIM mouldings responsibly. We look forward to both events and will continue to address climate change and offer our customers a supply route for responsibly produced mouldings.
