Organised by the Digital Greenhouse in partnership with Blenheim Chalcot, the Véyaon Awards is a night of celebration of local entrepreneurship and innovation, awarding those individuals and businesses who have ‘gone for it,’ (the definition of véyaon in Guernésiais).

With awards for startups, scaling businesses, digital disruptors and learners, the evening shines a spotlight annually on the innovation and new ventures of the Island.

UN1TY were therefore delighted to be nominated and shortlsted for 3 awards, and then come away with winning 2 of them! partners at the 2023 Véyaon Awards. From left to right: Mike Ozanne, Charlotte Dunsterville, Rollo de Sausmarez and Colin Woodcock

Scale Up Business of the Year 2023:

An award to designed to recognise growing business success. Celebrating strong and sustainable business growth that can demonstrate success in areas such as job creation, increased revenue and extended market reach.

The team were delighted to have their sustainable growth recognised by this award, especially when up against,and chosen ahead of, some other brilliant and fast growing businesses that had been short-listed.

The judge's thought, “UN1TY identified a gap in the market to bring trusted c-suite level expertise into businesses with a focus on sustainability. They made a strong focus on sustainable growth, building on core expertise to extend their reach across Guernsey and beyond.”

Innovation in Technology 2023

Celebrating organisations that are leading by example in technology-driven innovation projects.

The UN1TY team were delighted that one of their products was recognised with this award. ESG Calc was developed by UN1TY to help those with property portfolios or property-backed loan books, to better quantify their climate-related risks with functionality that captured physical risk like flooding) and regulatory risk (like EPC-regulations).

The judges felt that "the ESG Calc Portfolio Analytics tool from UN1TY positioned them as an innovative leader in technology, transforming environmental risk into financial opportunity in the pursuit of a more resilient and sustainable future".

Milestones need to be celebrated. Team UN1TY are "super stoked" to have received accreditation for our new Carbon Literacy Course from The Carbon Literacy Project.

We have to offer a huge vote of thanks to Olivia Bennett for her hard work in pulling the course together for us.

One can't deliver a Carbon Literacy course until one has had the course thoroughly checked and accredited. They check that the course covers off the key knowledge, that it uses suitable illiustattive examples and that the guided particpation sections are suitable (amongst a lots of other things).

The accreditor wrote of the UN1TY course: "I am happy that it meets our criteria - it is well tailored to the target audience, is full of inspiring examples and engaging activities - it should lead to some really impactful action".
