GPG Named Energy Consultancy of the Year, 2022
Global Procurement Group (GPG) wins Energy Consultancy of the Year for its achievements in helping businesses on their net zero journey throughout the energy crisis.
GPG was named energy consultancy of the year at the prestigious Energy Awards 2022. The judges praised GPG’s commitment to helping businesses on their net zero journey. The group delivers this through their unique ClearVUE.Business net zero consultancy. This is the second time the company has won this award, having previously triumphed in 2019.
The Energy Awards are one of the most highly-respected accolades in the energy industry, and recognise excellence and innovation across a range of categories. This year’s awards attracted a record number of entries, with GPG judged against some incredibly tough competition.
The award was collected at the gala event in London’s Mayfair, attended by 500 leading lights in the energy industry – including major business energy suppliers.
The company was selected from a competitive field of contenders, thanks to its end-to-end offer which provides the very highest standards in procurement, compliance, sector-specific strategies, and supplier relationships. The group aims to transform how businesses use and manage their energy, as we move towards a low-carbon economy.
In addition, it demonstrated an outstanding work-life balance and a range of rewarding incentives for its people, including December off (in addition to annual leave) and numerous paid-for team trips abroad. A unique selling point for the business was its ability to develop in-house, innovative technology that allows businesses to gain far greater control of their energy, visualising opportunities to reduce it, therefore cutting costs and carbon in the process.
GPG is a leading international energy specialist with over a decade’s experience in helping businesses plan their procurement and net zero strategies, ensuring that they decarbonise and are compliant with the ever-changing government legislation.
This accolade comes after a period of significant growth for GPG, who manage assets for over 25,000 clients and also employ over 850 people worldwide. In addition, the group consolidates a wealth of energy experience and expertise that spans Europe, US and Asia. The company is on track to exceed 1,000 employees by the end of 2022.
Collecting the award, GPG’s, Brendan Garvey, said: “What makes this award so special is the judges’ feedback, which clearly recognises the focus of the company’s future trajectory – to enable businesses to become net zero.
“They also commented that we are ‘nurturing the next generation to take a lead’. Inspiring the next generation of leaders in this sector, who we will need to continue the impetus towards a low-carbon future, is something we really want to do.
“We take this incredibly seriously. We realise the impact on the planet and are aware of the important role businesses can play in reducing carbon emissions. At GPG, we’re passionate about enabling businesses through our technology – to understand how their operations and behaviour affect the climate.”
John McCabe, Chief Executive, North East England Chamber of Commerce said: “Congratulations to Global Procurement Group on winning its category at the Energy Awards. It’s great news that the company’s work on supporting its customers on their net zero journey has been recognised by such a prestigious, national award.”
Andrew Gaved, Editor-in-Chief of Emap’s H&V News, who co-hosts the Energy Awards, said: “This industry has gone through a turbulent time in the last year, but these awards show companies and individuals are continuing to innovate, continuing to find ways to reduce energy and continuing to work hard for their customers, whether businesses or homeowners. This sector will be a key player in the journey to net zero, so we are proud to honour its achievements.”
