This is a critical time for business, caught between economic uncertainty on the one hand and climate crisis on the other. These awards aim to show that the contradications can be bridged, that there are ways through the maze.
We intend to make the Green Business Awards Britain's benchmark of green endeavour, of environmental excellence and of eco-effort by companies in Britain today.
The award categories are organised in broad industry sectors. This means that as far as possible entrants compete with peers. Each winner thus provides a barometer of the most innovative, ambitious and effective green initiatives happening within its industry sector. Since companies can most easily identify with and learn from their peers, it also encourages replication of the best ideas.
