2012 Entry Information


In its 7th year, the International Green Awards™ is looking to recognise organisations that have exhibited leadership and innovation in their sustainability approach. Organisations do not work in isolation and constantly interact with the environment. Traditionally, this interaction would imply the taking of natural resources and giving waste back.

Sustainability is not about saving resources, but is instead, a mechanism to use available resources in a smarter way – that would guarantee future supply and profitability. It is now time for organisations to evaluate and understand their two way interaction with the environment and build resilient businesses. Some people call this ‘future proofing’ – we call this smarter business.

This year, we are making the awards free to enter so that anyone who wishes to submit an entry can do so. All entrants will also receive a free sustainability report based on their entry.


2012 Categories

Sustainability categoriesThis year, we are also working with WWF-UK to recognise innovation across products, services or business models through our WWF Green Game-Changers category. 

Based on your organisation size and status, you could also compete in the following 6 categories:


Each of these categories will be assessed across 8 sustainability indicators which should form the basis of any holistic sustainability strategy. We are looking to find organisations that have put some effort into each of these 8 areas to form their sustainability directive. These disciplines are:

  • Energy
  • Water
  • Waste
  • Resources
  • Carbon
  • Supply Chain
  • Transport
  • Social Impact
