This special award is all about teamwork and collaboration; recognising the teams in which every member has made a positive difference. The award is open to any in-house sustainability/energy team (consisting of a minimum of two people) that has delivered tangible environmental improvements. Judges will be looking for those that have displayed effective and dynamic teamwork, strong values and innovative approaches to achieve success.

Please complete all fields below. We recommend that you write the body of your entry in a separate Word document and then copy and paste it into the form below, to prevent any of your entry copy being lost.

Each entry in this category will be assessed against four PRIMARY CRITERIA, as detailed below. All parts of the primary criteria are weighted equally. Please then use the SECONDARY CRITERIA field to add any information not covered in the primary criteria.
