LONDON: Does you business innovate on sustainability? The UK-based Guardian Sustainable Business Awards are open again this year, offering your business the chance to win national recognition.
As increasing global headlines show, organizations big and small are taking new approaches to sustainability, bringing new benefits to their businesses. The Guardian Sustainable Business Awards 2014 celebrates such innovation and impact in corporate sustainability, by rewarding those that are leading the way.
The awards spotlight the people and projects who are helping businesses do better and be better by making a real sustainability impact.
Across 11 categories which range from communication to natural capital, from carbon to the built environment, the awards are categorized to enable a broad range of approaches to be recognized. To see all of this year's categories, click here.
As the contest website states: "There is much to be gained in sharing experiences and replicating ideas whether you work for a global corporation or a small social enterprise. That's why we make sure that our awards live beyond the awards ceremony with year long coverage of the leadership our winners show.
"Businesses have the capacity for great innovation and the ability to move fast to seize opportunity. Some might say they offer our best hope in driving a stable transition to a sustainable future and that is why we always find these awards such a delight to put together and judge."
Judges include The Climate Group CEO, Mark Kenber, Matthew Pencharz, senior advisor, energy, Greater London Authority, and Paul Simpson, CEO, CDP.
While companies must have an office registered in the UK, initiatives can be global. Entries close on 7 February 2014.
