Our remarkable success in this competition has earned us the opportunity to have our technology considered for a potential pilot project by Lloyds Banking Group, in line with their goal to achieve Net Zero carbon operations by 2030.

The competition extended an invitation to green tech innovators and providers of low carbon solutions, like ourselves, to showcase their products. The winner of the award receives an opportunity to become a Lloyds Banking Group supplier.

Among more than 200 applicants who participated in a pitching competition, Kelda emerged as one of the five chosen businesses!

“It’s been amazing to see the quality and number of applicants we’ve had for this year’s competition. It’s testament to the innovation we’re seeing across the UK, as companies develop impactful green technology solutions. We’re very much looking forward to working with this year’s winners to support us with our own ambitious sustainability goals.”
