Maybe it is down to our archetypal British disposition, but it is always a bit embarrassing to trumpet your successes too loudly.
But embarrassment aside, I am delighted to report that last month BusinessGreen was shortlisted for the prestigious business editorial team of the year in the Association of Online Publishers' Annual Awards.
This is hugely gratifying on a number of levels, and not least amongst them is the fact that we have a – how shall I put this? – more streamlined editorial team than many of the brands we are up against.
We take considerable pride in the quality of the editorial coverage we provide to the emerging low-carbon market, and we believe that one of BusinessGreen's main strengths is the fact that we provide timely, concise, well-written and exclusive editorial content to the green business movement. As such, it is hugely pleasing to have that coverage recognised by an organisation as influential in the media sector as the Association of Online Publishers.
It is also great to be included alongside so many high-profile online brands, particularly when online publishing goes to the heart of BusinessGreen's wider ethos: embracing new technologies to educate and inform while reducing the environmental impacts associated with old-fashioned dead-tree publishing.
We'll be keeping our fingers crossed for the awards evening on 9 June.
