INDUSTRY NEWS: posted 30 October 2018

Riello UPS has announced that it is one of the finalists in the Green Award category of this year’s Daily Post Business Awards

Riello UPS was the first UPS manufacturer in Europe to introduce an Eco Energy Level classification rating the energy efficiency of its range on a scale of 1-6, enabling customers to make an informed choice about which UPS system will have the least environmental impact.

Judges were impressed by Riello UPS’s ongoing commitment to improving the eco-efficiency of its products, with its transformerless uninterruptible power supplies now capable of achieving up to 97% efficiency.

The Daily Post Business Awards is the annual celebration of the North and Mid-Wales business community.

Riello UPS, which has held the ISO14001 international standard for environmental management since 2005, is officially carbon neutral having offset almost 210 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions in the last year alone.

The judging panel highlighted its success in eliminating single-use plastics, its promotion of electric-powered company cars through on-site recharging points, and its ongoing championing of UPS battery storage as an alternative energy source as other areas of environmental excellence.

The company was also praised for its conservation work with the North Wales Wildlife Trust. Riello UPS’s 27,500 square foot base in Wrexham is one of just five areas in Wales where the Grizzled Skipper butterfly, a rare and threatened species, is found.

It has partnered with the charity to proactively manage the habitat and create a sustainable environment where the endangered insect can thrive.

Leo Craig, General Manager of Riello UPS, commented: “We’re a business that takes our environmental responsibilities extremely seriously, whether that’s through ongoing investment and R&D to ensure our products use the latest, most efficient technologies, or our team putting in place new processes that help to reduce waste and promote recycling in our day-to-day operations.

“We’re proud of this continued hard work to minimise both our and our customers’ environmental impact has been recognised with this nomination and are keeping our fingers crossed for the ceremony in a few weeks’ time.”

The shortlisting is the latest in a string of accolades for the Wrexham-based business. Back in May, it claimed the Data Centre Energy Efficiency Project of the Year prize at the Data Centre Solutions (DCS) Awards, the third year in a row it has been recognised at the ‘Data Centre Oscars’.

Previously, the firm secured international recognition at the global innovation awards organised by the consultancy Frost & Sullivan.

Riello UPS will find out whether they’ve won the overall prize at the awards’ glamorous black-tie ceremony staged at Bangor University’s Prichard Jones Hall on Thursday 29 November.

With awards in 10 categories up for grabs, the evening will be overseen by Nicholas Owen the distinguished journalist, former Royal Correspondent, and broadcaster.
