Mitsubishi Electric’s sustainable solutions manager, Martin Fahey has been honoured with a special Gold Pin Award from the UK Green Building Council (UK-GBC) after his sterling work supporting the Council’s activities.
The UK-GBC issues Gold Pin Awards to individuals from within the membership who have gone ‘above and beyond’ the call of duty in their support to the UK-GBC. Gold Pins are sparingly issued, with only two or three awarded each year.
“Martin is always one of the first to stick his hand up to volunteer and help despite having a very busy job for Mitsubishi Electric,” explained Paul King, Chief Executive of UK-GBC.
“In particular, he was a very enthusiastic and active member of the advisory group working on our new Pinpoint online resource, due to launch at Ecobuild.”
Pinpoint will bring together a host of online resources and allow environment professionals to search, filter and post reviews about sustainability tools, courses and guidance, plus access benchmarks, case studies and more. The new site aims to provide the best resources, tools and guidance available.
“At Mitsubishi Electric, we realise that only through collaboration will we help create a more sustainable built environment, so I am really touched to have received this recognition for what I see as part of my job,” said Martin Fahey.
“I am also grateful to Mitsubishi Electric for allowing me the time and for making this commitment to work with others to examine all possible ways of tackling climate change,” he added.
Fahey’s role is part of Mitsubishi Electric’s Green Gateway, which seeks to engage all in the built environment in the debate on how we can all reduce energy use and emissions.
