Alumet invited to parliamentary reception

Posted on 5 Jan 2012

The Warwickshire-based construction company specialise in renewable energy builds and have been granted the reception at the House of Commons on the back of its green credentials.

Having twice won the Royal Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce (RSA) accredited Green Apple Award, the Alumet group’s directors will showcase its award winning projects.

The reception aims to promote sustainability within business and Alumet are due to present their EOS Energy range of solar panel systems to specially invited guests, members of parliament, peers, think tank research staff, political advisers and industry specialists on 18 January.

Sustainability in the built environment is one of the most pressing issues within the housing and construction industry, with the reduction of carbon emissions and green issues at the top of the government’s agenda.

Traditionally a window, cladding and curtain wall business, Alumet diversified into renewable technologies, employing 30 new members of staff in order to grow this division of the business over the past 12 months.

Alumet’s marketing director Dean Walton said: “It’s a great honour to be invited to Westminster, we are particularly proud to be able to share our ideas and network with the country’s leading political minds in what is our 20th anniversary year.”

The reception will take place in the parliamentary dining room and keynote speeches will be delivered by a minister, shadow minister or senior Parliamentarian. An Alumet director will deliver a short speech outlining its double Green Apple award success.
