Today, Friday April 28, sees the announcement of the shortlist for the PwC Business Post Sustainable Business Awards. Now in its second year, the awards program aims to recognise excellence in sustainable business practice across the island of Ireland.
A record 130 entries were received from over 100 businesses active in Ireland and this year saw the awards program extended to 11 categories due to growing activity in the ESG space.
Speaking about the first phase of the adjudication process Daniel Murray, Political and Environmental Correspondent for the Business Post said: "The quality of this year's entries has been very high, showing the broad range of sustainability efforts underway across the Irish business landscape. It is encouraging to see environmental, diversity and equality issues becoming a key consideration for many businesses, and this year's shortlists demonstrate the individuals and businesses leading the way.”
David McGee Leader, PwC Ireland ESG Practice comments: “Congratulations to all the outstanding nominees for this year’s PwC Business Post Sustainable Business Awards. These awards recognise the best-performing Irish businesses promoting sustainable practice, innovation and thought leadership across a range of environmental, social and governance categories. The volume of entries is a demonstration of the passion and effort that Irish businesses are taking to build a better future for commerce and society.”
The winners, selected by an independent panel of Irish and international judges, will be announced at a black tie ceremony at The InterContinental Hotel, Dublin on Wednesday 24th May.
