Got an award-winning eco-product? Enter the Global Good Awards
Have you got what it takes to win a Global Good Award for your world-saving eco-product? We're thrilled to announce we'll be one of the judges, and the sponsor of the Eco Product category, at 2018's awards.
Wed 13 Dec 2017
Formerly the CSR Awards, 2018 marks the first year with the new name and 16 categories focusing on everything from eco products to employee engagement. Their ambition is to reward all types of organisations – multi-nationals, SMEs, social enterprises, local government, charities, NGOs and academic - of all sizes; all of whom are making strides towards a better world for people, the planet and the global economy.
They are going to be ‘walking the talk’ with their entrants and going all-out on sustainability too. The ceremony will be carbon balanced (including all delegate travel), the staging will be sustainable, the printed event material will be recycled and carbon balanced and the awards will be part-made from recycled glass by a British artist.
"We're thrilled to partner with the Global Good Awards in this new inclusive format," says Georgina Wilson-Powell, founder of pebble. "We lucky enough to hear about all sorts of amazing new eco-products through our weekly, must-read LUST LIST, so I'm really excited to see the calibre of entries."
So what makes an award-winning eco-product?
This is what we're looking for:
- This award is aimed at a product (or range of products) whose design and innovation serves a sustainable or environmental purpose or is made from 100% recycled/recyclable materials.
- All phases of the lifecycle of the product (from conception, pre-production, production, distribution, usage, after usage) should be taken into account.
- The award will recognise organisations that push the boundaries in an effort to create an environmentally friendly and affordable solution to an existing potentially polluting product.
- Initiatives will also be rewarded for addressing energy, water and general ecological footprinting as well as wider concerns around food and waste.
