Greenhouse PR one step closer to BusinessGreen award hattrick!

We are delighted to announce that for the fifth year running Greenhouse PR has been recognised for our efforts to drive positive environmental and social change by BusinessGreen, who have shortlisted us for ‘Green PR Company of the Year’ in their celebrated Leaders Awards.

Business Green award

To mark the 10th anniversary of BusinessGreen later this year, this year’s Leaders Awards will celebrate the immense progress the UK’s green business community has made, as sustainable business models and clean technologies have forced their way into the mainstream.

Greenhouse works exclusively for organisations pioneering the transition to a low carbon economy and several of our clients have also been shortlisted:

Greenhouse founder, Anna Guyer, commented: “As Europe’s most prestigious green business awards, it’s a huge privilege to be nominated once again, and to be recognised alongside some of the exceptional change makers that we are fortunate to count among our clients.

“All of our campaigns work towards finding solutions for a more sustainable future and over the past twelve months we have worked with a huge variety of organisations and pioneers to create powerful and inspiring stories, conversations and actions.”

“Being named ‘Green PR Company of the Year’ in 2015 and 2016 has opened up lots of new opportunities, and winning the award for a third year running would be fantastic.”
