IN MEMORIAM - JOHN CHESSHIRE (1947-2009)
Professor John Chesshire CBE chaired the Green Business Awards judging panel in 2007 and 2008 and was due to repeat this role in 2009. Sadly, John was diagnosed with terminal cancer in June and passed away in September 2009. A noted energy expert, John was an economist and honorary professor at SPRU, the science and technology policy research unit at Sussex University. He sat on numerous government energy policy bodies and advised several parliamentary select committees. He spoke out consistently and eloquently on ways to solve fuel poverty, and a special trust fund is being set up in his name to encourage and support postgraduate students wishing to work in this field.
We are extremely grateful for John's efforts in creating the Green Business Awards and proud to build on the foundations he helped lay with ENDS and MT.
- ENDS, MT and Haymarket Business Media would like to thank all the judges for generously giving their time and the benefit of their knowledge and experience to the Green Business Awards. All judges participated in a personal capacity. Each was required to declare any direct or indirect interest in any entry and to abstain from voting where such interest was declared.
