On September 29, Ethical Corporation will host its fifth annual Responsible Business Awards, celebrating the success stories of the corporate social responsibility (CSR) space.
[Blue & Green Tomorrow is currently running a crowdfunder to ensure its survival. Please pledge.]
In the Art Deco surroundings of Sheraton Park Lane Hotel in exclusive Mayfair the awards will bring together hundreds of executives, for what will be much more than just a night out.
As one of the leading voices in CSR, Ethical Corporation launched the Responsible Business Awards to celebrate the successes of new approaches to sustainability and promote pioneering examples of excellence.
“What we’re ultimately hoping to do is disseminate corporate sustainability knowledge and the awards are a unique way of doing that,” says Sara Baylis, director of Ethical Corporation.
“They help innovative approaches get picked up on by others – so experiences, challenges and successes can be shared.
“If we can celebrate what’s been successful, hopefully people will come away not having not just had a great evening but also having learnt something that they can take back to their organisation too.”
Some 13 awards are up for grabs, for categories such as ‘Best Sustainability Report’, ‘Head of Sustainability of the Year’ and ‘Best Business/NGO Partnership’. The 92 shortlisted entrants range from Nestle to Bacardi and Maersk to Aviva.
The judges – among them Karen Hamilton, vice president of Global Sustainable Business at Unilever and Aris Vrettos of the Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership – will be considering many factors, Baylis explains.
“The judges are looking for companies to have shown real business cases for sustainability and innovative approaches in leveraging it, as well as clear figures and outcomes of the projects they have worked on,” Baylis explains.
“Results, ultimately, matter.”
But whoever bags the most awards on the night, it is hoped that sustainability and the ever-expanding CSR space will be the big winners.
“We want to ensure that people come away inspired to affect change in their own organisations,” Baylis says.
“The awards epitomize what we’re trying to do in the sustainability space. Ultimately that’s why we’re here.”
