International Green Awards category shortlists announced

The International Green Awards is pleased to announce shortlists for this year’s programme, representing the most sustainable organisations across the world. Winners will be declared at our awards ceremony on 20th November 2012.

This year, the awards introduced a revolutionary new entry format in the bid to find organisations that have embedded sustainability across their processes. Organisations were evaluated on sustainability vision, level of innovation and advocacy against eight sustainability indicators ranging from energy and carbon, through to supply chain and resources. Additionally, the awards have also partnered with WWF-UK to find one true ‘Green Game-Changer’ across products, services and business models.

Judges were impressed by the diversity of this year’s applications, in terms of geographical spread and the projects themselves. As part of evaluating individual merit, judges also had to consider the relevance and topicality of each entry with a micro and macro perspective. The judging process itself was conducted with integrity, by disguising organisation’s names or any relevant identifiers, in order to avoid prejudice.

Winner’s across all categories, including the prestigious ‘Grand Prix’ award, will be announced at the International Green Awardsceremony on 20th November 2012 at Battersea Power Station, London.
