In response to popular demand, all entrants have one additional week to submit their entry to the UK's most prestigious green business awards
Businesses, sustainability executives, green entrepreneurs, investors, and NGOs have an extra week to submit their entries for this year's BusinessGreen Leaders Awards, after the deadline was extended by one week in response to popular demand.
BusinessGreen today announced that organisations interested in submitting their entry have until 5pm on March 22nd to submit their entries for the UK's most prestigious green business awards.
"With Brexit looming and businesses across the UK facing an extremely busy end to the financial year we have had numerous requests for the deadline for awards entries to be extended," explained BusinessGreen editor-in-chief James Murray. "In order to provide a level playing field we are giving everyone an extra week to complete or update their entry."
Now in their ninth year, this year's awards will take place on the evening of Wednesday June 26th at The Brewery venue in central London.
The aim of the gala dinner and awards ceremony is to shine a spotlight on the very best of the era-defining green economic transition and raise the profile of those businesses, projects, and individuals who embody the ambition required to drive the next phase of sustainble economic development.
The BusinessGreen Leaders Awards are free to enter to any business or organisation with a presence in the UK.
However, in order to invest in hosting the awards the entry terms and conditions require all shortlisted firms to commit to attending the event. Entrants are advised to check they have the time and budget to attend the awards evening on June 26 before completing their submission.
Last year's awards saw around 600 senior executives from across the green economy come together to celebrate the sector's many achievements and hear keynote speeches from Energy and Clean Growth Minister Claire Perry and chair of the Environmental Audit Committee Mary Creagh.
This year's BusinessGreen Leaders Awards offers businesses, projects, and individuals the chance to enter a wide range of categories, including Renewable Energy Project of the Year, Small Business of the Year, Leader of the Year, and Company of the Year, as well as new categories such as Environmental, Social, and Governance Investor of the Year, and Waste-Tackling Project of the Year.
Entries will be considered by our independent panel of expert judges, which features high profile figures and experts from across the green economy.
