Owing to popular demand, we're extending the deadline for entering the BusinessGreen Leaders Awards by one week
In response to popular demand, BusinessGreen has today extended the deadline for entries to this year's BusinessGreen Leaders Awards by one week. Companies, sustainability executives, NGOs, and entrepreneurs now have until 5pm on Friday 20th March to submit their entries to this year's awards.
The BusinessGreen Leaders Awards are on track for a record number of entries, but this year the official entry period was one week shorter than previous years and many of you have requested extensions to ensure you can make your entry for the awards as strong as possible.
Therefore, in the interests of ensuring a level playing field and allowing the UK's green businesses to amply demonstrate their many achievements we are extending the deadline for everyone.
If you have already registered your entry, don't worry, you simply have an extra week to submit it.
If you have already submitted an entry and wish to take the extra week to improve it in any way, please contact Matthew Oliver on [email protected] and we can arrange for you to update it.
And if you are yet to register your entry you now have seven extra days to put yourself forward for the UK's largest and most prestigious green business awards.
Previous winners of the BusinessGreen Leaders Awards include Sir Stuart Rose, Solarcentury's Jeremy Leggett, PwC, Diageo, Balfour Beatty, Sony, Capgemini, Green MP Caroline Lucas and Tory peer Lord Deben. Could this be the year you join them as a BusinessGreen Leader?
The theme of this year's awards is action. As environmental challenges become ever more daunting, we want to recognise those companies that are taking action to tackle those challenges, be it through cutting-edge technologies, effective engagement of colleagues and customers, or transformation of their business models.
Our distinguished panel of judges want to hear how you and your organisation are taking green action and inspiring others to follow your lead.
The entry process is relatively simple and the awards are free to enter, although we require shortlisted companies to purchase a minimum of two tickets to attend the ceremony.
The entries will be judged against the stated criteria by our expert panel of judges, which includes MPs Alan Whitehead and Laura Sandys, former BusinessGreen Leaders Awards winners, such as Julia Groves of Trillion Fund and Hanergy's Estee Chaikin, and leading experts from across the green economy, such as Aldersgate Group's Nick Molho, WRAP's Dr Liz Goodwin, Dr Nina Skorupska of the Renewable Energy Association, and Hubbub's Trewin Restorick.
As with previous years, our judging panel will be split into two groups to ensure each entry is given thorough consideration and enable any conflicts of interest with certain categories to be avoided.
Sponsored by AECOM and category sponsor The Crown Estate, the BusinessGreen Leaders Awards are the must attend event for the green business community and we will once again be joined by leaders from across the political spectrum, as well as many of the UK's top green business executives.
As well as being a celebration of the most inspiring green business projects, the awards also represent an unparalleled networking and sponsorship opportunity. For information on available sponsorship packages contact Matthew Oliver at [email protected]
