KB Event was nominated for the Green Award at this year's TPI Awards.
Here is an excerpt from the article in the TPI Magazine:
Working in collaboration with Peak Oils, KB Event introduced HVO BioFuel – a 100% renewable diesel that is palm oil free – into the fleet. This HVO is a fossil free diesel which is significantly better for the environment than fossil diesel, while maintaining its performance. This non-palm oil HVO eliminates up to 90% of net CO2 and significantly reduces nitrogen oxide (NOx), particulate matter (PM) and carbon monoxide (CO) emissions.
HVO Biofuel is more expensive than traditional diesel and although this increase, taken over the total cost of an event or tour, is not in any way prohibitive, it is, unfortunately still a budget consideration. However, since rolling out the HVO Biofuel to its client base, KB Event has reported more end clients rather than their management, happy to foot the bill for touring in a more responsible way.
In May 2022, KB was given access to funding through the EIC (Energy Innovation and Collaboration – an EU incentive still operational in the UK), to carry out a full audit of its office-based operations with a view to seeking the best sustainable practices at its Head Office premises in Nottingham. KB Event worked alongside Dr Gulcan Serdarogou, Technical Officer from the Energy RND unit at Nottingham University, to identify areas where even greater improvements can be made.
