Launch of the PwC Business Post Inaugural Sustainable Business Awards

04 March, 2022

Sustainability is a crucial consideration for modern business, with the core principles of ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance standards of practice) the bedrock of sustainable business strategy. The Business Post, Ireland's leading business and politics media outlet, is delighted to announce the first annual Sustainable Business Awards.

Created and produced in partnership with PwC, the awards will recognise the best performing Irish businesses across a range of ESG categories promoting sustainable practice, innovation, and thought leadership.

Taking place at The Intercontinental Hotel on Wednesday 15 June 2022, the PwC Business Post Sustainable Business Awards are open to all businesses operating in Ireland.

Free and confidential entry to the awards, and more details of the category criteria and judging process will be available from 22 February at

Richie Oakley, Business Post Editor and Chief Content Officer said, "I am thrilled to announce the launch of the first ever PwC Business Post Sustainable Business Awards. I believe this event will be a highlight of the Irish business year and look forward to receiving and reviewing the entries in the coming weeks alongside the other members of our judging panel. The Business Post is fully aware of the growing importance of ESG for businesses. We want to recognise the companies that are taking their responsibilities in this area seriously and we want to celebrate those achieving growth in a sustainable way. We are delighted to partner with PwC on this. PwC sponsors the Business Post's Five Degrees of Change podcast and our weekly ESG newsletter and this is an exciting extension of that partnership".

David McGee who leads the PwC ESG Team said, "PwC has made a worldwide science-based commitment to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2030. The commitment includes supporting our clients to reduce their emissions, as well as reducing those from the PwC network's operations and suppliers".

"That's why partnering with the Business Post to recognise the best performing Irish businesses across a range of ESG categories is a perfect fit for us. We are delighted to work with the Business Post and the Sustainable Business Awards Team on this unique partnership".
