Entry now open for Sustainability Leaders Awards 2012
With a brand new name, a brand new venue and brand new categories, the Sustainability Leaders Awards, formerly the Awards for Environmental Excellence, are now open for entry.
Building on the success of the past five years, the edie Awards for Environmental Excellence are moving with the times. UK businesses have moved beyond purely 'environmental' concerns and are working hard to embed sustainability in their operations, their ethos and their supply chain.
To capture this change and celebrate just what it takes to be in the vanguard of sustainability, we have refreshed the award categories, teamed up with Sustainable Business magazine, and changed our name to bring you the new Sustainability Leaders Awards - the UK's premier awards event for those demonstrating leadership and innovation in sustainability in both the private and public sectors.
Edie managing editor Will Parsons explained: "This is an incredibly exciting evolution of what has become one of the must-attend events in the sustainability calendar. We've refreshed the categories, including the addition of awards that recognise the people who are initiating and delivering these sustainability projects, and changed the name to reflect what these awards are all about - recognising and rewarding those who are genuinely leading the way."
Like its predecessor, the Sustainability Leaders Awards remains one of the few environmental awards schemes accredited by the RSA as an official feeder scheme for the European Commission's EBAEs (European Business Awards for the Environment). This means the winners, deemed to be among the elite of UK award winners, automatically qualify for entry into the European awards.
A new name deserves a new venue, so this year the Sustainability Leaders Awards will move from The Hurlingham Club to Central London's luxury The Grange at St. Paul's, taking place on December 5th.
Entry is open now and will close on June 15th.
