The aim of the Awards, now in its sixteenth year, is to celebrate the achievements of small business in Ireland and to recognise the vital contribution of the small business community to the Irish economy.
The Sustainability Award specifically recognises a company that has set-up or has made alterations to operations/structures either within its business or on behalf of other businesses that have made a positive impact on energy consumption and/or on the environment.
The winners were selected from hundreds of applications received for the 2020 programme.
Vivid Edge, established in 2015, has developed a pioneering ‘energy efficiency as a service’ model for organisations which use large amounts of energy. The company provides the capital to enable these organisations to upgrade the efficiency of their buildings, beyond their own capital budgets, replacing such expenditure with a simple service fee.
To date Vivid Edge has secured the backing of a large European energy efficiency fund with an initial €30 million project funding facility and has completed projects with multinational private and public sector organisations generating a multi-million euro revenue stream.
The company has an exciting sales pipeline from Ireland UK and mainland Europe in offices, data centres and processing facilities across sectors such as telecoms, services, heavy industrial and retail.
Vivid Edge, headquartered at NovaUCD, the Centre for New Ventures and Entrepreneurs at University College Dublin, is an Enterprise Ireland high potential start-up (HPSU) company.
