About the awards

Awards with heritage, yet always innovating

Organised by specialist sustainability publishing house Faversham House, the awards began life in 2007 and since then the event has continued to grow and expand to include all key aspects of business sustainability.

Now in their 13th year, the awards are held on Wednesday 5 February 2020 at the London Park Plaza, Westminster to coincide with the two-day conference and exhibition, the edie Sustainability Leaders Forum, taking place on the Tuesday 4 and Wednesday 5 February 2020 at the Business Design Centre, London.

Conference and exhibition by day; prestigious awards by night – combined these two established events offer the unique opportunity to bring together the most forward-thinking businesses and ambitious business professionals looking to move beyond environmental objectives; deliver transformational change in society and create more value within their organisation.

Open to all, large and small

The awards are open to all businesses and organisations across the public and private sectors and of all sizes from the largest multi-nationals to the smallest micro-organisations. As long as the initiative,project, product or strategy shows commitment, credibility and concrete results, we want to hear about it.

What makes a winner?

By embedding sustainability in their operations, business models and products, our winners are in the vanguard of sustainability and are driving demonstrable results through innovation, engagement and a commitment to doing business better.

The Sustainability Leaders Awards are included in the highly regarded RSA accreditation scheme - one of only a handful of environmental schemes to be chosen for this honour. This means that award winners have the opportunity to gain further accolades on the international stage, as they are automatically given access to the European Business Awards for the Environment.
