The judges of this category will be looking for a business which demonstrates a true commitment to protecting and enhancing the environment and to the principles of sustainability.

Entrants will be expected to demonstrate that business decision within the organisation are made with a long-term view which takes into account any impact on the environment.

Judges will also be looking for a business which does not only seek to minimise negative impacts but, if possible, to make a positive contributuion to the local environment while maintaining the profitability of the business.

However, the judges are also keen to see initiatives which go beyond everyday business activities and are implemented because they are believed to be the right thing to do.
