Sustainability Leadership Awards.

Sustainability Leadership Awards.

Every year Sustainability Leadership hosts a recognition ceremony to celebrate the annual progress made towards more sustainable practices by our members. These awards are presented to members who have met our criteria for initiatives/programs that have a significant impact on social, environmental or economic sustainability, and comprehensive sustainability reporting. We invited sustainability professionals to act as our third-party judging panel to evaluate and provide feedback to our members regarding the successes and potential improvements of their initiative, program and/or report (to learn more about our judging panel see acknowledgements page).

Best Sustainability Report.

The Best Sustainability Report award recognises the sustainability report that best meets the criteria set out by the Global Reporting Initiative for effective sustainability reporting.

This framework creates a consistent experience for users to understand what is being reported, why those topics were chosen and how they were measured. It also tells the story of what happened, where a business currently stands and how they plan to address the impacts going forward.
