The companies, projects, places and people shortlisted for the 2013 Observer Ethical Awards have been unveiled. Taking place in central London on June 13, the event has become colloquially known as the ‘the Green Oscars’.
Now in its eighth year, Lucy Siegle, chair of the judging panel, said the shortlist was full of “proven change-makers, squaring up to the environmental and social justice battles we all face and coming up with real solutions.”
Nominees include the UK’s first ever Green party MP Caroline Lucas; BBC documentary maker Sir David Attenborough; and environmental law firm Client Earth.
The judging panel included Charlatans lead singer Tim Burgess; singer and model VV Brown; and Paralympian Martine Wright.
