Alan wins Green Ribbon award

On 18th November Alan was awarded a Green Ribbon Political award for special recognition of environmental achievement.

The Green Ribbon Political Awards reward environmentally active parliamentarians, businesses, NGOs and the media in the UK and abroad. The winners were decided by a high profile panel of judges including the likes of Jonathan Porritt and respected environment journalist Geoffrey Lean.


The judges chose to give Alan this award because:


"A stalwart parliamentarian campaigner over the years, Alan is currently a member of Energy and Climate Change Committee , the Environmental Audit Committee, is the Chair of the Associate Parliamentary Renewable and Sustainable Energy Group (PRASEG) and vice chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Environment Group.


He has been a member of the Public Bill Committees for every major piece of UK energy and climate change legislation in recent years, including the Climate Change Act 2008. Alan has campaigned for the increased use of sustainable energy sources, particularly microgeneration. He is particularly commended for his committed support to a wide range of environmental organisations within Parliament."
