Shell Springboard open for applications

October 4, 2012

Shell Springboard is on the lookout for the UK's next big low carbon idea

Since 2005, Shell has awarded over £2.25 million to 62 small businesses who have developed new ways of cutting carbon emissions and urges those small enterprises with a commercially viable, innovative idea to apply for the 2013 Shell Springboard Awards.

To enter the competition you must:

  • be based in the UK
  • be a SME by the European definition
  • have been in business for at least three months

Judging will be carried out by the three regional panels of independent experts. Up to two businesses from each region will then meet a national judging panel prior to the announcement of the UK winner in London in May 2013.

For more information and to apply, visit the Shell Springboard website.  Applications will be accepted online from Tuesday, 18th September 2012 until 5pm Friday, 18th January 2013.
