Businesses across the region are being urged to apply for one of the country’s most prestigious awards schemes.
Entries are now open for the Queen’s Awards for Sustainable Development.
The award recognises commercially successful products, services and management that benefit the environment, society and the economy.
To apply for the award – part of the Queen’s Award for Enterprise – companies must be based in the UK, file their tax returns with HMRC, be a self-contained enterprise that markets its own products or services and is under its own management, have at least two full-time UK employees or part-time equivalents and demonstrate strong corporate social responsibility.
In addition, to apply for the sustainable development awards you should be able to show how you have achieved outstanding sustainable development for more than two years and provide evidence of the benefits or positive outcomes of your actions or interventions.
The deadline for submissions is September 10 at midday.
Shortlisted organisations will be notified in October, with winners revealed next March.
Representatives from winning organisations will be invited to a Royal reception in the summer of 2020.
