Environmental Award for Leicester

The green hero award which marks outstanding achievements in the environmental field has been awarded to the city council's Leicester Energy Agency.

Organised by the Green Organisation, the Green Heroes Shield is a new annual award presented to councils and other organisations which help others to follow their environmental lead.

Council leader Roger Blackmore said: "Through the energy agency we have a vast number of initiatives under way which aim to reduce energy use and protect the environment. This award recognises the work being done to share and promote those initiatives."

The city council won a Green Apple award earlier in the year for the environmental auditing and management system operated by the Leicester Energy Agency.
