Green Awards 201023 November 2010: Here are the shorlisted organisations for the global GREEN AWARDS 2010. The winners of each categories and the Grand Prix winner will be announced at the GREEN AWARDS 2010 Ceremony, on Thursday 2nd December 2010, at the Natural History Museum, hosted by Jo Wood and Wayne Hemingway MBE.

Launched in 2006 to critical acclaim, the International Green Awards were set up to recognise strategies that use creativity in an engaging and effective manner, leading to more sustainable outcomes. It is now an established event on the global sustainable business-calendar.

Green AwardsBy showcasing “best in class” examples of effective, innovative and creative approaches to sustainability, the International Green Awards™ aims to be an agent of change. To this end, the Awards team searches the globe every year to find true influencers, leaders, entrepreneurs and innovators, identifying worldwide sustainability success stories that inspire and motivate others. It is no exercise in fluffy back-patting.

The awards are aligned with the Brundtland Commission’s definition on sustainable development, stated as: “Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”

The Awards are part of the Royal Society of Arts Environment Award Accreditation scheme and all submitted entries require evidence of efficacy and transparency. Previous winners have included Nokia, Marks & Spencer, Toyota and the China Environmental Protection Foundation.

In 2010, the International Green Awards went completely global and were opened for worldwide participation in every category. This was a major step forward for the Awards, in the fifth year of its production. Last year, the Awards featured a total of 16 categories, including three new ones: Best Green Use of Mobile Apps & Technology, Best Green Product Innovation and Best Green Educational Project. The coveted International Green Awards™ Grand Prix was won by the ‘China Environmental Protection Foundation’, for an innovative outdoor campaign created by DDB China to promote a reduction in vehicle use.

The International Green Awards™ has expanded again and reorganised its categories by looking to support sustainable achievement right across Business, Government & Citizen initiatives that influence change to encompass 360° sustainability projects as well as encompassing its heritage to identify best practice with sustainability communications.
