Sustainability Leaders Awards 2013 breaks all records!

With more entries from more unique organisations, more winners and more guests than in any year since the awards began eight years ago, 2013 really has been the best yet for the Sustainability Leaders Awards.

More than 400 guests gathered last night to celebrate the winners of this year’s awards, organised by Sustainable Business and They recognise and reward those organisations and individuals demonstrating a genuine commitment to sustainable business practices and the results they’re driving through their efforts to do business better.
