Working with our partner institution and major businesses in the City, Norwich will continue to support and promote sustainable living – where today’s citizens meet the needs of the present without compromising future generations.' Norwich City Council - winner of the Carbon Reduction award 2019

'We are proud to have been named Consultancy of the Year at edie’s Sustainability Leaders Awards. It’s a testament not only to our amazing team but to all of the pioneering organisations we work with to push the sustainability agenda and drive tangible social action. It is fantastic to see recognition for the important role of communications in helping to achieve the SDGs. We believe they represent the biggest global challenges of our time and work internally on our own practices and externally with our clients to create accessible, engaging and relevant solutions. So here’s to creating more game-changing communications that challenges expectations, overcomes existing barriers and ultimately inspires and enables positive behaviour change.' Forster Communications - Winner of the Consultancy of the Year award 2019

'Being shortlisted and winning one of this years awards means so much to the team at Tideway, as it is recognition for all the hard work that is involved to ensure that the sustainability ethos becomes fully integrated into the delivery of the much needed piece of infrastructure for London. On a personal note, collecting the award on behalf of the team and sharing the evening with a few of them was the highlight of my career to date.' Tideway - winner of the Mission Possible: Mobility award 2019

 

'Our experience of the edie awards is exciting, rewarding and very friendly! Everyone we have been in touch with has been incredibly and genuinely helpful and encouraging, which as a SME we have really appreciated. We were delighted to be named as finalists and be invited to the awards dinner, which was just lovely and our table, number 54 was very special – full of warm-hearted, incredible people with life-changing stories – inspirational. It was therefore a total shock when we won our category and we have since been overwhelmed with messages of support and congratulations. Again as an SME, we really didn’t think that we had any chance, and quite honestly we had settled for great food and a night out! We really hope we can use our edie success as a platform to expand our social and environmental impact over the coming months. We plan to keep in touch with the individuals and companies that we had the pleasure of meeting (and who we would never had had the opportunity to meet) and explore opportunities for collaboration moving forwards.' JPA Furniture - winner of the Social Sustainability & Community Development award 2019

 

'I am humbled and honoured to be selected and grateful for the support of my colleagues over the years, with whom I would like to share this recognition. What a wonderful surprise to have received this recognition amongst such highly respected finalists and be chosen by the judging panel of sustainability industry leaders.' - Janice Lao, The Hongkong & Shanghai Hotels, winner of the Sustainability Leader of the Year award 2019

 

'We are extremely happy to be recognized for a product that epitomizes our company-wide mission of Feeding the Future. Innovation is the core of our values and Skretting’s MicroBalance FLX is a great example of how we can use this innovative mindset to play a part in resolving the looming global food crisis.' - Nutreco and Skretting, winners of the Sustainability Product Innovation of the Year award 2019

 

'We’re absolutely delighted to pick up this award, and the whole team really appreciate the recognition of our efforts so far. Equally, we’re all inspired to do more and continue our journey towards Making Sustainability Real.' - Canary Wharf Group, winner of the Waste Management & Resource Efficiency award 2019

 

'It’s a great honour for us to win this edie award; highlighting our continuous action to innovate and identify resource efficiency, furthering our previous achievements. It is brilliant recognition of how a project to improve our environmental impact and sustainability makes perfect business sense through cost savings and ensuring resilience against very real changes we are seeing with our climate and the consumer market. Our shift towards seeing everything as a resource not a waste, helping us transition to a circular economy, is something we want to shout about and share with others.' - Adnams - winner of the Water Management award 2019
