The Awards, organised by edie 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 Stakeholder Engagement and the prestigious Sustainability Leader Award. With the exception of the Sustainability Leader: Consultancy award, all of the categories are judged by our esteemed 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.

The shortlist and winner of the Consultancy award is being determined by a piece of third-party research commissioned by edie and conducted by market research specialists Accent - the sponsor of this category. It means that this is the only award voted for by the customer. Other sponsors of the 2014 Sustainability Leaders Awards include Air Products and Sounds Commercial.

Winners will be unveiled at a glittering Awards ceremony in London on 19 November.
