Over 600 businesses have pledged their support for the scheme with almost 20 per cent of them already having achieved or working towards accreditation.
Ian Greenfield of Eco Building Products said: We are proud to be sponsoring the Investors in the Environment Awards. As a local company focused on sustainable building and renewable energy products we are delighted to be able to work with PECT to help Peterborough towards becoming the UKs environment capital.
It also gives us the opportunity to get out there and spread the renewables message to as wide an audience as possible.
