BusinessGreen has today announced the short list for the inaugural UK Green Business Awards, which will take place on the evening of Thursday 29th June at the Leonardo Royal in St Pauls, London.

The awards were remarkably competitive with hundreds of brilliant entries and scores of companies and projects competing in many of the categories. The short listed entries will now go before our expert judging panel ahead of the awards dinner and ceremony in the summer.

"We are delighted to unveil today's list of finalists, all of which really are at the forefront of the UK's burgeoning green economy and its transition to a net zero and sustainable economy," said BusinessGreen editor-in-chief James Murray. "The number and quality of entries to this awards really are testament to the remarkable level of innovation and investment that is transforming the UK economy and environment for the better. We look forward to celebrating all of our finalists at the inaugural UK Green Business Awards ceremony in June."
