A host of companies and individuals in Monaco have been awarded e+Trophies for their eco-friendly practices.
E+ is an environmental label granted to individuals, institutions or companies who have joined in a partnership with SMEG to act and contribute to the energy transition, driven by Prince Albert, the Minister of State and the Monaco Government.
More than a hundred guests gathered on Saturday 11th May for a day organised in parallel with the Monaco Formula E Grand Prix.
This year, 15 institutions, companies and professionals received a prize in various categories covering detailed consumption by use (Smart+), local power generation (Sun+) and energy transition (egeo).
The Monte-Carlo Bay received the ‘Super Trophy’ for its pioneering work in a number of environmental initiatives. CEO Frédéric Darnet and Technical Director Achour Daria were congratulated by Bernard Fautrier, vice-president of the Prince Albert II Foundation.
“The Monte-Carlo Bay has achieved quite extraordinary results in terms of reducing consumption. As pilot site of the Smart + program, it buys green electricity, produces its own photovoltaic electricity and has just inaugurated the first ‘Power Zone’ for the fast charging of electric vehicles in Monaco,” said Thomas Battaglione, CEO of SMEG.
Among the other companies to receive awards were Parkings Publics for their efforts to develop clean mobility, and the Metropole, which was recognised as the first establishment to initiate the Smart + program.
Meanwhile, a host of Monegasque residents were rewarded for being the first to use the myNexio portal to optimise their energy consumption.
National Council President Stéphane Valeri has visited the Grimaldi Forum to thank the team behind the screening campaign, while also encouraging more people to take the Covid-19 antibody test.
Prince Albert has been tested at a Covid-19 screening centre in Monaco to raise awareness about the government’s campaign to have as many people of the Principality tested as possible.
Monaco’s primary students made their return to school on Monday, the final group to do so in the government’s three-phase plan to lift the lockdown.
The Principality ordered some 11.5 million masks at the height of the crisis. Now those masks are being safely stored by the government for a rainy day.
