The edie Sustainability Leaders Awards 2015 officially launched earlier this month, and there is now less than a week to go for entrants to make use of the early-bird rate, which is available until Tuesday, 30 June.

Now in their ninth year, the RSA-accredited awards recognise excellence across the spectrum of sustainability activity; from the best efficiency programmes through to sustainable design and product innovation. Sustainability Leaders have one thing in common: they are all doing business better.

This year’s categories are: –
Sustainability Leader
Sustainability Professional 
Sustainable Business of the Year Award
Employee Engagement and Behaviour Change
Sustainable Supply Chains
Sustainability Reporting
Sustainability Product Innovation 
Energy Management
Water Management 
Carbon Management Award 
Waste & Resource Management 
Sustainable Packaging 
Sustainable Business Models

The awards are open to all businesses and organisations across the public and private sectors and of all sizes; from the largest multi-nationals to the smallest micro-organisations. As long as the initiative, project, product or strategy shows commitment, credibility and concrete results, we want to hear about it.


By embedding sustainability in their operations, business models and products, our winners are in the vanguard of sustainability and are driving demonstrable results through innovation, engagement and a commitment to green business.

The reduced entry cost is only available until next Tuesday. But if this all sounds a little quick, register your ‘Intention to Enter’ now and give yourself a bit more breathing room with a week’s extension on the entry deadline.

Final submission deadline for the Sustainability Leaders Awards 2015 is Thursday, 23 July.
