Green Business Awards 2009: Introduction


Management Today and ENDS are proud to present the results of the Green Business Awards 2009, organised by Haymarket Business Media. This year, we are delighted to announce 12 winners and a further 11 organisations that have been highly commended by our eminent independent judging panel.

In any case, environmental issues are profoundly interconnected. When businesses attack problems such as waste and pollution, they very often cut their carbon emissions at the same time. Likewise, efforts to cut carbon or to improve resource efficiency can have multiple additional environmental benefits.

Our ambition is for the Green Business Awards to help spread these messages, and to make a significant positive contribution to the greening of Britain. …
