The Business Post in partnership with PwC is proud to announce the first edition of the Sustainable Business Awards.

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.

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

The PwC Business Post Sustainable Business Awards are open to all businesses operating in Ireland, with the award winners’ ceremony taking place at
The Intercontinental Hotel on Wednesday June 15 2022. The category entry deadline is Friday April 8 2022. 

Free and confidential entry to the awards, plus more details of the category criteria and judging process are available in the How to Enter section.  

Richard 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.”
