New award category for The Sustainable City Awards

The UK’s greenest entrepreneurs are being asked to step forward to claim the ultimate reward for their efforts as The Sustainable City Awards welcomes a new category.

For the first time, those paving the way to become the UK’s greenest entrepreneur will have their efforts recognised as they compete to lift the new Sustainable Entrepreneurship Award at the ceremony on March 27th 2014.

With sustainability as the Mayor of London’s key theme for 2014, The Sustainable City Awards are looking for those who have stepped outside the box and carried out pioneering work across the UK.

Businesses are invited to nominate themselves for their green projects from the likes of developing apps designed to find the closest parking space or setting up local community groups to drive forward an area’s green projects.

Now in its 13th year, the new category which is in association with the London Sustainability Exchange, London Chamber of Commerce and Industry and the Worshipful Company of Environmental Cleaners, will sit alongside their 12 key categories which reward the work of nationwide businesses leading the way with their green agendas.

Previous years have recognised the work of the green food industry, the green fashion industry and this year encourages green entrepreneurs to take centre stage.

By 2016, the UN estimates that 70% of the world’s nine billion population will live in cities, calling for renewable energy, housing and living arrangements to be urgently developed.

Simon Mills, Head of Sustainable Development at the City of London Corporation, said: “Last year was a huge success with our focus on sustainable fashion especially having Olivia Firth on board. As the need for future sustainable businesses greatens, we’re looking forward to seeing the talent that this year brings and acknowledging those with the skills that will help shape our future.”

Named by the RSA as the as the UK’s greenest awards system, the Sustainable City Awards organised by The City of London Corporation is looking for innovative and determined individuals who can create long term value which will benefit society, the economy and the environment.

The deadline for nominations is 4th November 2013 with the winners named at the awards ceremony in March 2014.
