Nominees for Sustainability Awards


Businesses across Cornwall will be keeping their fingers crossed for success after the shortlist for the 2010 Cornwall Sustainability Awards was announced.

31 companies and four individuals from across the county have been selected in the competition’s six categories: Best Managed Company, Low Carbon Business, Resource Management, Products and Services, Best Individual and for the first time, Sustainable Construction.

The applications have been handed over to the judging panel for further scrutiny before the overall winners are announced at an awards ceremony taking place on Friday, December 3 at the Pavilion Centre, Royal Cornwall Showground.

Celebrity judge, Dick Strawbridge, said: “Over the last seven years there have been some intense debates between judges in every category.

“As a result of this heated ‘analysis’ the judges appear to have got it right as all the winners have proven to be outstanding, and many have gone on to win national and international awards.

“The great thing about these awards is that the businesses in Cornwall, who all take a lot of effort to enter, are rightly proud at being short listed, or winning.”
