The BusinessGreen Leaders Awards take place this year on 22 June in central London

Shortlisted companies can now reserve their place at the BusinessGreen Leaders Awards 2022, which will take place in central London on the evening of 22 June

The UK's largest and most prestigious green business awards are back once again this summer.

And today we can announce all the finalists for the BusinessGreen Leaders Awards, for which the awards ceremony is scheduled to take place on the evening of June 22nd at The Brewery in central London.

This year the awards attracted a huge number of entries from right across the UK's thriving green economy, underscoring the sheer breadth of talent, innovation, creativity, expertise and business-nous which is driving the country towards a greener, cleaner, and more resilient future.

Having to whittle down the hundreds of entries into the final shortlist below means many brilliant projects and organisations have unfortunately missed out on making the cut this year. But, as ever, those which have made it onto the shortlist fought off tougher competition than ever to get there, and now make up arguably the strongest and most inspiring line up of contenders yet.

So without further ado, we are delighted to today announce all the finalists for this year's awards below - and to confirm that you can now book your place to attend the UK's largest and most prestigious green business celebration event in person, where the winners will be announced in June.
