Finance feeds into the world we are building and good financial models are a very important tool in making it more sustainable. This award is for an organisation that has shown leadership by developing financial models or tools that produce social, environmental, and business benefits.
6. Net Zero
It is no longer enough to do less bad. Progressive businesses are seeking ways to be regenerative in their activity. This award is for those businesses that are taking tangible steps towards making a net positive contribution to communities, society, and the environment.
7. Startup of the year
A startup is a company set up to solve a particular problem or challenge. They are companies associated with innovation, impact, and future thinking. This award celebrates early-stage companies with sustainability at their heart and an idea with the potential to scale up. To be eligible, companies must have started to trade between 1 January 2011 and 31 July 2015.
From circular principles applied to design, to projects achieving zero waste and remanufacturing initiatives, rethinking waste is vital. This award is for projects or products that are at the cutting edge of waste innovation.
9. Water Management
Water sustainability will be one of the defining challenges of our time. This award will recognise an organisation that can demonstrate its commitment to water sustainability through projects, technologies, designs or policies that improve water availability, access or quality.
10. The unsung hero of the year
The credit for sustainability initiatives tends to go to high-profile senior executives but the hard work involved in turning a vision into reality often goes unnoticed. The unsung hero of the year award is for an employee in the engine room of sustainability who has gone beyond the call of duty to drive change in their organisation.
Good luck everyone!
