We may be getting a white Christmas, but the colour theme for the year ahead looks set to be green. Energy conservation, insulation, solar and wind power, recycling – are all high on the agenda at every level. As Clearview went to press, campaigners at the FiT cuts were awaiting the outcome of a judicial review, following a U-turn on the High Court’s decision not to grant this.


The strength of feeling on this subject was evident when Chris Huhne appeared on the BBC’s Question Time trying to justify the cuts to a hostile audience.


This must all be good, positive news for this industry which plays such a significant role across all those headings. Green Deal workshops and seminars are springing up for those who want to learn as much as they can about how the initiative can work best for their business.


In this issue we look at how Eurocell is investing in plans


to tackle the twin issue of sustainability and recycling.


Ecobuild draws nearer and (20-22 March) that will give all of us an opportunity to see the latest developments. Enterprise Europe is holding a free match-making event alongside Ecobuild this year on 20th March – see our Diary Dates for more.


Training remains an important issue which we will continue to highlight as crucial to the future of the industry: we are delighted to report on Multi Fab’s successes and achievements in this area, setting such a good example that is clearly paying off for the Norfolk-based company.


The New Year starts on a real high for the winners (and the runners-up) at G11 – their sheer pleasure is easy to see on all the photographs in our special feature. A memorable occasion by all accounts, that can always be relied upon to brighten up the dull November days. Everyone in the business must share the elation of the winners and wish them continuing success and acclaim.
