The Guardian Sustainable Business Awards 2011
The Guardian Sustainable Business Awards aim to showcase genuine innovation in corporate sustainability and reward those who take sustainability to the very heart of their businesses.
There are 11 award categories, including communicating sustainability, engaging employees, and social impact and supply chain. Winners will feature in a special supplement published on www.guardian.co.uk and the team judged to have the best overall initiative will be invited to attend a “winner’s day” at The Guardian.
IEMA chief executive Jan Chmiel is one of the judges, and so members are encouraged to enter. All entries meeting the awards criteria will be added to the new Guardian Sustainable Business best practice exchange – an online database allowing sustainability professionals to share their learning and drive progress for all organisations.
Time is running out so make sure you enter before 7 February 2011. For more information and to enter, visit www.guardian.co.uk/gsb-awards.
