Bosch Thermotechnology has announced a new awards program focusing on industry professionals who install and specify Bosch heating and cooling products in the United States and Canada. The Bosch Green Living Awards program will recognize and reward residential and light commercial installations employing Bosch boilers, water heaters, geothermal heat pumps or a combination of each judged noteworthy for overall design, execution and energy efficiency attainment.
Modeled after a highly successful program in the United Kingdom since 2000 by Worcester Bosch, the North American Bosch Thermotechnology Green Living Awards contest emphasizes Bosch’s commitment to protecting the environment and encouraging energy efficient and sustainable practices in HVAC.
The contest kicks off today, June 5th, World Environment Day, the United Nations’ sponsored annual event meant to be the biggest and most widely celebrated global day for positive environmental action: http://www.unep.org.
The awards program will run from June 5 through December 15, 2013. A team of judges assembled by Bosch Thermotechnology will award four product category winners and one Grand Prize winner from entries received. Winners will receive cash gift cards prizes and trophies. The Grand Prize winner and a guest will be invited to attend an awards luncheon to be held in New York City during the 2014 AHR Expo. The Grand Prize winner’s customer will also receive a cash prize.
“The Green Living Awards, like its counterpart in the UK, will grow over the years in both the level of entries received and in name recognition,” says Richard Soper, President for Thermotechnology North America, who was instrumental in developing and growing the UK program. “Recognizing and rewarding industry professionals who use our products and help make a contribution to preserving our earth’s finite resources is in everyone’s interest.”
As part of the Green Living Awards, Bosch has included an art, photography and creative writing contest for children. Children in three ascending age groups can submit artwork, photography, essays and poetry under the theme “How can we live a greener life?” and win gift card cash prizes for winning entries.
