    The fourth Global Good Awards was the biggest one yet, with over 20 awards picked up by a range of winners, from small social enterprises to global corporations, all pushing the envelope on what it means to be a good business. 

    The awards rewarded everyone from Hackney’s innovative Toast Ale, made from bakery leftovers, to GSK for their fundraising work with Save the Children, to partnerships between community organisers Project Dirt, and FMCG giants, Unilever. Even football club, West Ham, received a silver award and London’s The Soap Co. were multiple award winners, in partnership with agency The Communications Store.

    Global Good CEO, Karen Sutton says: “The Global Good Awards continues to grow in its fourth year. In 2018, we wanted to broaden the scope to reach organisations of all shapes and sizes and were absolutely blown away by the diversity and calibre of the results.”

    “A huge congratulations to all our winners, runners up and ones to watch and thank you to our hardworking judges, sponsors and partners, without whom The Global Good Awards wouldn’t exist.”

    As one of the judges and sponsors, pebble was also on hand to hand out the award for the best Eco-Product to Snact, the fruit bars made from food waste

    The Global Good Awards also won their own award - the eco-friendly award ceremony was the first to win gold in the Awards Trust Mark scheme. 

    The evening’s ‘freshly eco’ dress code, vegan menu and choice of venue (Green Tourism Gold Award winning BMA House), as well as totally sustainable event design are all part of the innovative Global Good Awards’ desire to ‘be the change’ and design an awards ceremony that pushes the boundaries of what it means to put on a sustainable event at every level. For instance, event sponsors, Denmaur, make 100% recycled brilliant white paper that is carbon balanced through World Land Trust since 2016, protecting over 600 acres of land.
