The Sash Windows London Ltd – Essay Contest 2017



Green Vision Award

Francesca Coleman Carr

Sash Windows London Ltd are a forward-thinking windows company specialising in heritage style sash windows using sustainable technology.

We love the English heritage style of building and like to think this style can be replicated in the modern world using state of the art technology designed to have a minimal carbon footprint.

The very concept of double glazing is environmentally friendly due to the amount of energy they save. But we want to take this further by making every part of our business as green and sustainable as possible.

To help with this we are reaching out to students to offer their vision of how a business in the modern world can reduce their carbon footprint and impact on the environment down to zero.  Is it even possible? We like to think it is!

All we ask is for an essay in your own words offering advice on how we can achieve a zero carbon footprint, or if not zero, where we can make significant reductions.

Essays need to be a minimum of 500 words and we’ll select the winner based on creativity, vision, enterprise and a good grasping of the fundamental concepts of environmentally friendliness.


This essay content is for students that are currently enrolled in schools, colleges and universities in the United Kingdom. We are looking for vision and creativity, which can come from all walks of life. For me gender, age, race is not a barrier to succeed in business, but desire and aptitude is.

The essay you are going to create must be unique and creative. The words of your content must deliver your vision for a greener business and explain what is required to minimise Sash Windows London Ltd’s impact on the environment.

While reading the essays, we will take note of factors including creativity, vision, practicality and foresight.


Myself, and my editorial team will pick the winner based on factual accuracy, representation of the scope and conclusions.

The winner will receive £500, and a special mention on our website along with the publication of their winning essay.

Additionally, the best five essays as determined by myself and my editorial panel will be published on SashWindowsLondonLtd.co.uk.


To apply for the contest you must submit by no later than September 1st, 2017. Please include:

Your resume
Your completed essay, minimum 500 words.
Proof of legal residency in the United Kingdom

The winner of the contest needs to supply proof of enrolment in order to receive the scholarship.


The winner will be selected by 1st October 2017.

The recipient will be announced on 10th October 2017.

The money will be sent by cheque to your school, university or college. We will publish winning essays on our website and also award a certificate for our Green Vision Achievement Award.

We’re looking forward to getting entries from lots of students and can’t wait to hear your ideas!
