Greenhouse recognised for pioneering work at BusinessGreen Leaders Awards
Last night’s prestigious BusinessGreen Leaders Awards saw Greenhouse awarded Highly Commended in the ‘Communications Agency of the Year’ category.
This is the seventh consecutive year that Greenhouse has either won or been highly commended in this competitive category. We were recognised by the judges for creating tangible impact to accelerate the move to a green economy and sustainable future – across infrastructure, energy, transport, finance, food and farming.
The awards celebrate businesses, NGOs, public sector bodies and individuals that are leading the UK’s progress in sustainability. They are rigorously judged by a panel of leaders in the green economy.
Anna Guyer, founder of Greenhouse, said:
“The BusinessGreen Leaders awards are a unique celebration of the determination that defines the best green businesses. We are so proud to be recognised for the ambition and boldness that underpins everything we do at Greenhouse.
“We work exclusively with the pioneers – NGOs, entrepreneurs and businesses – accelerating change and creating positive social and environmental impact. The last year has been hugely important for us in that mission. We have delivered more than 40 campaigns creating tangible impact to accelerate the move to a green economy and sustainable future.”
A momentous week for Greenhouse
The BusinessGreen Leaders Award comes in a week when Greenhouse has also launched and helped to co-ordinate the largest mass lobby for action on climate change.
The nationwide lobby of parliament, called The Time Is Now, took place yesterday, organised by The Climate Coalition and Greener UK.
Over 10,000 people, representing 99% of the UK’s constituencies, are estimated to have travelled to Westminster to meet their local MP to demand urgent political action. Constituents met with 200 MPs, including Emily Thornbury, David Lammy and Ben Bradshaw, to discuss ambitious new laws to combat climate change and restore our environment.
The coverage of the mass lobby generated by Greenhouse’s media team has been widespread, with pieces appearing in key national titles such as The Guardian, BBC Online, Express, Independent, Press Association, Reuters and Sky News. In addition, the campaign also generated vast numbers of regional and broadcast coverage, totally over 300 pieces across the country and beyond.
