Lucy Blake, project manager for Vattenfall’s Aultmore Wind Farm, said: “We are delighted to be sponsoring this new award which celebrates the fantastic community groups and organisations leading the way in sustainability and environmental awareness.

“The award aligns with our core values of sustainability and helping build a fossil fuel-free future. In addition, with our redesigned Aultmore Wind Farm proposal in Banffshire we wanted to demonstrate our commitment to the area and recognise those inspirational groups who are making such a positive difference in helping create a greener future for their community.

“We hope to see some great nominations and would like to encourage anyone who knows a local group involved in promoting sustainability and environmental awareness to please take the time to nominate them.”
