Sustainable innovation around technology is an important focus as businesses embark on the journey to a green revolution. And so the race is on to search the globe to unearth this year’s shining examples of innovation and creativity that will inspire our generation.
There are 23 award categories in total. Twenty are available to enter directly and then the inaugural Best Green International ‘Responsible’ Celebrity Award is open to a public vote at www.greenawards.com . The awards steering group will be shortly revealing who they will be nominating as the distinguished Lifetime Achievement Award nominee after the exemplary benchmark set by Sir David Attenborough CBE, who was honoured last year. Finally the International Green Awards Grand Prix will be awarded to the overall winner. Last years ‘Green Prix’ winner was The China Environmental Protection Foundation.
Sir Paul Judge, Steering Group Chair commented, “These awards bring together and generate awareness of outstanding ideas and achievements that can help our world become more sustainable by spreading good practice and allowing other organisations to benchmark their own environmental policies and practices.”
According to one of this year’s distinguished judges Ahmed Djoghlaf – Executive Secretary, UN Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), “It is an honour and a privilege to participate in the 2011 INTERNATIONAL GREEN AWARDS™. I am impressed with the positive impact the Award has in promoting and rewarding creativity and dedication. Through example, the Awards is shaping future messages of sustainability and therefore creating the leaders of the green businesses of tomorrow.”
