Awards will recognise those driving sustainability agenda
The UK’s premier environmental awards scheme is looking for projects that stand out from the crowd and push forward the sustainability envelope.
Edie.net’s Awards for Environmental Excellence celebrate innovation and best practice and recognise the expertise behind significant environmental achievements across business and government.
It is one of just a select few RSA accredited environmental awards schemes that produces the UK national entries that go forward to the European Business Awards for the Environment.
Unlike more specialised schemes, the awards recognise projects from a wide array of disciplines – previous winners range from corporate giants like Mitsubishi and Siemens to one-man bands that are doing something that could set the environmental agenda in their sphere.
Awards up for grabs include:
Green Corporate Initiative
Green Local Authority Initiative
Green Retail Initiative
Waste & Recycling
Water & Wastewater
The deadline for entries Wednesday, May 26 and full details can be found at www.edie.net/awards
The awards are judged by an impartial expert panel including:
Liz Parkes – Head of Waste & Resource Management, Environment Agency
Isabel Dering – Mayor of London’s Environment Advisor
Dr Peter Bonfield – Chief Executive, BRE
Greg Archer – Director, Low Carbon Vehicle Partnership
Prof Tom Stephenson – Cranfield University and MD of CIM
Joanna Yarrow – TV presenter, author and green consultant
Oliver Heath – TV presenter, designer, architect and renewable energy campaigner.
Ed Gillespie – Guardian columnist, sustainability consultant and advocate of low carbon travel.
With over 1.3 million users every year and over a decade of experience, www.edie.net is Europe’s largest website for those with a professional interest in the environment.
The awards are now in their fourth year.
