Genelec nominated for Inavation Sustainability Award
The Inavation Awards are run by Inavate Magazine in collaboration with ISE, providing a clear benchmark for Systems Integrators, Consultants and Technology Managers throughout the AV industry in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and beyond. The annual awards process continues to recognise and celebrate the very best of AV design, integration and management on a global level, whilst helping AV buyers discover the industry’s most important innovations.
As one of four shortlisted companies in the Sustainability category, our entry demonstrated our efforts to continuously reduce our environmental impact. Our history of sustainability goes back to our founding in 1978, when we established one of our key values of producing serviceable loudspeakers with a long lifecycle and continuous spare part support. That foresight has continued to prove its value, especially as the climate crisis has grown in scale. We’ve developed many more sustainable practices since our early days, including ISO14001 certification, powering our factory using renewable energy, the extensive use of recycled aluminium for our loudspeaker cabinets, and designs that use minimal power consumption.
One of our recent AV developments, Smart IP, was awarded Best Loudspeaker at the 2021 Inavation Awards, partly because of its low power consumption and single cable operation, which provide a simple answer for reducing resource consumption in AV.
The Inavation Awards ceremony is taking place on the 10th of May in Barcelona, where the winners will be announced during the first evening of the ISE show.
