Are you a Green game-changer?
Admin | 03.08.12
Got a green / ethical / environmentally-responsible / eco-conscious business you think is worth making some noise about? Do you know a company that you'd like to see nominated?
The International Green Awards (IGA) are now entering their 7th year, celebrating sustainability intelligence, leadership and innovation.
This year, in a collaboration with the WWF, the internationally renowned pair are on a quest to find innovations in products, services and business models that can lead to more sustainable outcomes.
They're searching for global change agents and sustainability innovations that really are 'game-changers'.
Are you a Green game-changer?
For Anna, it's companies like Cafedirect, individuals like Dale Vince of Ecotricity, and campaigners like Fran Armstrong (producer of Age of Stupid and founder of 10:10), who are the real Green game-changers.
Past winners of the IGA include some of the heavy-weights like Unilever, Marks & Spencer and Deutsche Bank. (But don't knock them, the bigger they are, the bigger the impact even a small positive change has!)
Not a global industry giant yet? Fear not! Names you're probably more familiar with have walked away with this prestigious award, including Dale Vince for Ecotricity, The Carbon Trust, and Pavegen (a favourite, here at Greenhouse!)
WWF have begun a project to compile a 'bank' of Green game-changers, of revolutionary business cases - for inspiration and celebration. Plus, they're hosting the award for the Most Responsible Celebrity. It takes two seconds to cast your anonymous vote - and there are some interesting entrants!
Registration is all done online through IGA's new sustainability review platform - Smarter Business.
So, if you, your company, or someone you know is a Green game-changer, get on it. Entries close on 23rd August
