Welcome to the BusinessGreen Leaders Awards 2014 - the UK's most prestigious and coveted green business awards.
Now in their fourth year, the BusinessGreen Leaders Awards celebrate the leading businesses, executives, entrepreneurs, investors, and campaigners from across the green economy, highlighting how these pioneers are driving the emergence of innovative and sustainable new business models and technologies.
The awards cover every aspect of the green economy from transport to energy and from small businesses to multinationals, providing organisations of all sizes with the opportunity to highlight how they are contributing to the new green economy. Winners will be selected by our panel of expert judges, including some of the UK's most high profile green business executives and winners from previous years' awards.
The theme of this year's awards is green business innovation. Environmentalists often argue that all the technologies we need to build a sustainable economy already exist, and they are right to do so. But the only way these technologies will force their way into the mainstream is if green business leaders continue to innovate. Thankfully they are doing just that, and it is this innovation that the BusinessGreen Leaders Awards are designed to highlight, partly to celebrate true green business leaders and partly to provide an example for others to follow.
Success at the BusinessGreen Leaders Awards represents one of the most coveted accolades available for companies and individuals operating in the fast expanding green economy.
The Awards gala evening at the Brewery in London will bring together finalists, sponsors, and political and business leaders from across the green economy to celebrate the success of the past year and debate the future development of this most exciting of sectors. The eventual winners from amongst the audience of over 400 green business executives will be celebrated by their peers and will also be profiled to BusinessGreen's global audience of senior business leaders and policymakers.
