BusinessGreen Leaders Awards 2017: Two weeks left to enter

Deadline for entry to the UK's top green businesses awards is Friday 17 March

Top green businesses, projects and sustainability professionals have just two weeks left to submit their entries to the BusinessGreen Leaders Awards 2017, the UK's largest and most prestigious green business awards.

The awards are open to any business or organisation with a presence in the UK and the deadline for entries is 5pm 17 March 2017.

BusinessGreen can today also confirm the judging panel for the awards, including former winners and leading figures from across the green economy, such as the CBI's Michelle Hubert, Dr Mike Pitts of Innovate UK, the REA's Dr Nina Skorupska, Shadow Energy and Climate Minister Dr Alan Whitehead, and Julie Hirigoyen of the UK Green Building Council.

As in previous years, the judging panel will be split in two during the judging process to ensure all the shortlisted entries are fully considered and judges are only assigned to categories where there is no potential conflict of interest.

Businesses and individuals can enter more than one category through our revamped website, including new awards such as Sustainability Report of the Year and Transport Project of the Year, and established awards such as Renewable Energy Project of the Year and the coveted Company of the Year.

The awards are free to enter, but in order to deliver the event all shortlisted entries are required to purchase a minimum of two tickets to attend the ceremony and make use of supporting marketing material.

The shortlist for the awards will be announced during the week of April 3rd and successful applicants will have until June 5th to confirm their attendance at the awards at The Brewery in Central London on the evening of 28th June.

Now in their seventh year, the BusinessGreen Leaders Awards are the largest and most prestigious green business awards in the UK, bringing together 600 leading politicians, CEOs, sustainability executives and entrepreneurs to celebrate the best of the green economy at a glamorous awards ceremony at The Brewery in Central London.

Previous winners include high profile figures, such as Lord Stuart Rose, Sir Ian Cheshire, and Caroline Lucas, leading blue chips such as PwC, RBS, Bupa, and O2, and innovative clean tech firms and green start-ups such as FIA Formula E, Gnewt Cargo, Good Energy, and Hubbub UK.    

"The BusinessGreen Leaders Awards provide a unique platform to highlight the many successes of the green economy, and we want to hear from you and your organisation about the great progress that is being made to enhance our environment and build the resilient, prosperous, and sustainable economy every business wants to see," said BusinessGreen editor-in-chief James Murray.
