Green Business Awards to give winners entry in European prize
For the first time, winners of the 2010 Green Business Awards in the UK will be eligible to compete against winning business environmental initiatives throughout Europe.
Eligibility in the prestigious European Business Awards for the Environment (EBAE), run by the European Commission, is a benefit of a new accreditation for the Green Business Awards from the Royal Society of Arts (RSA).
UK businesses can gain entry into the EBAE awards only after having won an RSA accredited award.
The RSA accreditation is an authoritative stamp of approval for the Green Business Awards’ procedures, and proves its commitment to rewarding top business environmental initiatives.
In order to win accreditation, the Awards had to demonstrate to independent RSA auditors a high quality of procedures and standards for both entry and judging.
The Green Business Awards are only the ninth awards to receive RSA accreditation, out of 400-plus environmental and sustainability award schemes in Britain.
The Green Business Awards, presented by Haymarket titles ENDS and Management Today, and now in their fourth year, celebrate the most innovative, ambitious and effective initiatives by UK business for achieving environmental sustainability and implementing smart business practices. They are the UK’s most comprehensive awards on business and the environment.
Entries for 2010 close on Wednesday, May 19, and awards will be given at a London ceremony on Tuesday, November 2.
