Now in their 12th year, the Sustainability Leaders Awards recognise and celebrate the amazing progress being made by individuals and organisations when it comes to transforming business, for good.


Our Sustainability Leaders Awards winners hall of fame is decorated with organisations of all shapes and sizes – from the largest multi-nationals to the smallest micro-organisations, and everything in between. What sets these winners apart from the rest is that they have been bold, taken clear and decisive action, and driven themselves in a new direction in an effort to achieve a sustainable future, today.

Now, with one month left until the awards entry deadline, edie has published a free entry guide offering advice on submitting a potentially award-winning entry. From judges’ tips on using the right language to a clear explanation as to how to display the results of your entry, the 10-page guide will help you get the recognition you deserve.

This year, you have 20 awards categories to choose from. Sitting alongside well-established Awards favourites – including the all-important Sustainability Leader, Energy Management Leader and Employee Engagement & Behaviour Change awards – we have introduced SEVEN new categories for 2019.

These new categories include the CSR Engagement/Marketing Campaign of the Year; Circular Economy Innovation of the Year; Team of the Year; and the Rising Sustainability Star Award. 

And remember…

  • Give yourself plenty of time to complete your entry so you can incorporate our top tips and judges’ recommendations.
  • Look at the criteria for each category before you enter by going to the categories and criteria page, so familiarise yourself with the questions and requirements before you enter,
  • Do your research and be selective about what you submit.

The entry deadline for the 2019 Sustainability Leaders Awards is Friday 14 September 2018. The Awards will then take place on the night of Wednesday 6 February 2019 at the Park Plaza London, Westminster. 

Good luck with your entries and if you have any further questions regarding the entry process please contact us.
