No Outdoor Company Nominated in Green Awards
Nominees for the International Green Awards™ 2011 announced!
The International Green Awards™, in association with Climate Change-The New Economy, has just published the nominated shortlists across all 20 categories for 2011, representing a diverse spread of inspirational and ground-breaking organisations, individuals and ideas from across the world.
Winners will be recognised on 24th November 2011 at a green gala ceremony.
This year marked a transition for the Awards, encompassing overall business sustainability leadership and vision across 20 categories such as Best Green International Large Business, Best Green Product Innovation and Best Green Employee Engagement. Businesses across the globe responded with enthusiasm, with entries pouring in from every continent.
Jury member David De Rothschild, Environmentalist & Explorer, commented on this year’s awards: “Bigger dreams, more creativity and increased inspiration are going to be three vital components in moving the needle towards the sustainable ways of living and acting that nature and humanity so desperately crave! The International Green Awards™ manages to instigate all three and more!”
A quick scan of the nominations include no outdoor companies:
Why is that? An industry that lives and breaths the outdoor environment. Not good.
Some interesting nominations:
Best Green Educational and Sustainability Awareness Award - Neils Yard
Best Green Employee Engagement Award - M&S
Best Green Cross Platform Digital Media Solution Award (Best use of Mobile Applications Social Media and online content Award) - Everything Everywhere “Do Some Good” - New mobile volunteering app set to change the face of volunteering in the UK
Let's hope 2012 awards tell a different story.
