We realise how important sustainability is to manufacturers, which is why it is the primary focus of our awards this year. We want to celebrate those who put in extra effort to make their businesses sustainable – not only environmentally, but socially and economically, too.
Here is what one of our judges, Sarah George, had to say, “In the four years I have written about sustainable business, the term itself has become less about incremental change and doing less harm and more about radical change. There have been fewer arguments pitting environmental sustainability and profitability against each other, and more recognition that they are, in fact, interlinked.”
We look forward to seeing you at the online ceremony!
