Invisible Dust shortlisted for City of London 2012 sustainability award
Invisible Dust is one of five organisations which have just been shortlisted for the Sustainable City Awards by the Lord Mayor of the City of London 2012. The Awards recognise and reward UK organisations, from multinational businesses to small charities, and promote outstanding achievements and innovation across all aspects of sustainabilty.
Invisible Dust is shortlisted in the Air Quality Category which ‘recognises organisations, both large and small who are leading effort to tackle what is currently one of greatest environmental challenges facing the UK- air pollution. Judges will be looking for processes, products and materials which have been deployed in innovative ways in order to tackle this issue’, City of London website.
