The Awards, organised by edie.net and its sister brand Sustainable Business, celebrate the very best in sustainable business; recognising true leadership and innovation among companies and organisations that are making genuine progress in embedding sustainability throughout their operations. Entry-level hit an all-time high for 2014, with the final shortlist whittled down to 74 entrants. The finalists include multi-national corporations, retailers, manufacturers, luxury brands, SMEs, public sector organisations, universities and more.
The 14 categories this year range from Carbon Management and Energy Efficiency through to Sustainable Transport & Travel, Sustainable Packaging, Waste & Resource Management, Stakeholder Engagement and the prestigious Sustainability Leader Award. With the exception of the Sustainability Leader: Consultancy award, all of the categories are judged by an expert panel which includes the Carbon Trust’s chief operating officer Michael Rea, BRE’s chief executive Peter Bonfield and Forum for the Future’s chief executive Sally Uren.
