Corporate Supporter – vento ludens
running4renewables are delighted to announce that for the second year running vento ludens Ltd have decided to become the Corporate Supporter of the initiative.
vento ludens are part of an international group of companies with approximately 300 employees. Since 2000 they have been working successfully as developer, investor and owner of renewable energy installations, and are wholly dedicated to producing clean, renewable energy. A Scottish office is based in Edinburgh.
Back in 2010, Jay Butler, Project Director for vento ludens said; “the concept of running4renewables is creative, imaginative and delightfully simple. The initiative has the potential to attract an enormous following and I feel certain that 2010 will be the start of an exceedingly popular annual event. vento ludens is tremendously proud to be the lead supporter for this inspirational initiative – long may it last”.
Encouraged by the enthusiastic and convivial atmosphere of last years event, vento ludens were happy to support the initiative again this year. The support that vento ludens gives the initiative is integral to its success and means that all the money raised by the volunteers will go directly to Renewable World’s projects in developing nations.
A number of vento ludens staff have been inspired to join in the fun and participate in various running events for the cause. For further details please visit www.ventoludens.co.uk
