Green Awards

Smarter Business Sustainability Review Platform

What we did: Information design, sustainability review platform design and programming, 
entrants' sign-up / log-in / approval, and a custom CMS (content management system) for managing entrants' data.

Highlights: Easy export of each entrant and the relevant associated information made it easier for all aspects to be managed and information distributed through the CMS.

The International Green Awards is the leading platform for sustainability intelligence, leadership and innovation.

The awards launched in 2006 to critical acclaim with the objective of recognising the best-in-class examples of sustainability communications and have gone from strength-to-strength since then. In 2009, the Awards introduced an ‘International’ category, encouraging applications from the world over.

In 2012, the awards recognised organisations that have exhibited leadership and innovation in their sustainability approach which led the Green Awards International to develop a sustainability review platform – Smarter Business.

The Smarter Business platform provides a standard scale of reference to benchmark sustainability performance. The platform objectively assesses an organisation’s sustainability strategy using 8 key indicators – energy, water, waste, resources, carbon, supply chain, transport and social. Participating organisations receive feedback and analysis on their sustainability strategy and resulting impact on their financial bottom line.
