Businesses, entrepreneurs, investors, executives, project managers, and campaigners urged to showcase their work at the UK's largest green business awards
Businesses, sustainability executives, green entrepreneurs, and environmental NGOs have just one week left to submit their entry for the BusinessGreen Leaders Awards 2016 and ensure they are in the running for the UK's most prestigious green business awards.
Following the most eventful 12 months yet for the UK's green economy, featuring record clean tech investment, deep emission reductions, and the historic Paris Agreement, BusinessGreen is once again looking to celebrate the best and brightest from across the green economy.
Businesses, NGOs, and individuals now have until Monday 21 March at 5pm to submit their entries and be in with a chance of winning one of the UK's most coveted green business awards.
BusinessGreen is seeking entries across a wide range of categories, including Circular Economy Project of the Year, Renewable Energy Project of the Year, Sustainability Executive of the Year, Leader of the Year, Small Business of the Year, and the prestigious Company of the Year.
As in previous years, the BusinessGreen Leaders Awards are free to enter. However, BusinessGreen does require all shortlisted entries to purchase a minimum of two tickets to attend the glamorous black tie awards ceremony. Attendees will enjoy a networking drinks reception, three course meal, and a glittering awards ceremony, while all finalists and highly commended entries will receive a certificate to mark their achievement at the BusinessGreen Leaders Awards.
Moreover, all finalists on the evening will feature in a new report, supported by headline sponsor AECOM, which will provide a snapshot into the most inspiring and innovative projects, companies, and individuals working to drive progress across the green economy.
Peter Skinner, chief executive environment and ground engineering for Europe, Middle East, India and Africa at AECOM, urged companies from across the green economy to take the opportunity to highlight their pioneering work.
"The BusinessGreen Leaders Awards are all about showcasing best practice and championing innovation," he said. "From recognising individuals who have spent their careers advancing the sustainability agenda to acknowledging businesses that have transformed the way they operate, the Awards have become an established event for those active in the green economy."
