A brand new award will feature in Highland Heroes 2023 celebrating those who are helping to make our communities more environmentally friendly.

The green hero award, sponsored by SSE Renewables, will be presented to an individual who is helping to create a cleaner, greener future.

NOMINATE at www.hnmedia.co.uk/highlandheroes by midnight, January 6, 2023.

SSE Renewables director of onshore development and construction, Heather Donald, said: “SSE Renewables is delighted to sponsor the inaugural green hero award at the Highland Heroes awards for 2023. As a green energy champion we are aiming to increase the amount of renewable energy we produce five-fold by 2031. It will be fantastic to play our part in recognising an individual who is making a real difference in the critical challenge to reach net zero.”

The categories are:

Once all of your nominations are in, our judging panel will create a shortlist which will appear in a special supplement where you can vote for your Highland Heroes of 2023!

As well as the 14 main awards, there is also a very special accolade which will be presented at the awards ceremony at the Macdonald Drumossie Hotel, Inverness on Friday, March 10, 2023.

The hero of heroes will be decided by our judges from all of the winners at the ceremony and revealed on the night!
