The importance of sustainability in business is something we strongly believe in here at betternotstop. Alongside this, we also believe that those who are doing great work in the world of business should be celebrated!
We’ve previously written about some of the fantastic Sustainability Events coming up in 2022 as well as the best Sustainability awards in 2022, but on this occasion we wanted to highlight one in particular; The Marie Claire Sustainability Awards.
This July Marie Claire UK’s second annual Sustainability Awards will be taking place and entries are now officially open - so to all of the purpose-driven businesses out there; make sure you enter the awards for a chance to win and see your achievements recognised!
What Are The Marie Claire Sustainability Awards?
The Marie Claire Sustainability Awards are a celebration of the brands, organisations, and products that are genuinely implementing change and building a better tomorrow. The awards highlight the businesses that are going above and beyond to protect the future of our planet and make a genuine difference.
Marie Claire UK says that “Sustainability needs to be much more than a trend that brands pay lip service to.” And we couldn’t agree more! We’ve spoken before about how sustainability actually helps businesses, so it’s not just that sustainability can help to save the planet - it can help your business too.
Right now, brands have both the opportunity and responsibility to help consumers navigate their day-to-day lives with products and experiences that are designed with the earth in mind - without greenwashing or misleading.
And this is where the Marie Claire UK Sustainability Awards come in!
If you’re a business with purpose, a sustainable start-up shaping its business model to be as ethical as possible, or a company going the extra mile to positively impact our planet, we want to hear from you and celebrate your hard work. There are categories spanning fashion, beauty, food & drink, health & wellness, travel & leisure, motors, weddings and more, and your entry will be judged by a panel of some of the best sustainability experts in the industry.
Take a look at 2021’s winners here.
