The International Green Awards aims to raise the bar around the cult of celebrity. Initiated in 2011, the Most Responsible Celebrity award recognises an international public figure who has promoted the global sustainability agenda. This award puts the spotlight on those progressive individuals who are keen to harness the power of the media, challenge conventional thinking on the climate agenda and who are really ahead of the game by doing their bit for the future of us all.
