Nominations open for Bristol’s Best Green Small Business & other Go Green 2016 Awards

  • Are you a business with less than 250 employees?

  • Have you made significant strides towards improving the green credentials of your organisation over the past year?

  • Would you like to win up to £3,000 to be spent on future green initiatives?

Best Green Small Green Award

If the answer to these is ‘yes’, then you should enter the Bristol’s Best Green Small Business Award at The Go Green 2016 Awards.  The glamorous Go Green 2016 Awards ceremony is being held at The Bristol hotel on the evening of Thursday 18th February 2016 to celebrate the green achievements of Bristol’s business community over the past year.  Tickets will be free for all attendees and details of how to book will be available in the new year.

The Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) in Bristol has teamed up with Go Green to find Bristol’s Best Green Small Business.  This award is to acknowledge those businesses (of up to 250 employees) that have improved their green credentials in 2015 across all of the five Go Green themes.

There are two generous cash prizes up for grabs:

  • the 1st prize is £2,000 for Bristol’s Best Green Small Business (open to both non-FSB & FSB members)
  • with a special prize of £1,000 for the Best Green FSB Business (open to FSB members only)

FSB members can enter both of these awards and be in with the chance of winning a total of £3,000!

Entering is very simple!  All you need to do is to tell us how your business has made improvements in each of the Go Green themes of Planning & Resilience, Travel & Transport, Energy & Efficiency, Happy & Healthy and Sustainable Sourcing (200 words per theme).  We’d also up to 200 words on how the winning the cash prize would help your business to implement further green initiatives.

Application for these awards is via the FSB website only: www.bbgsb.co.uk

  • Planning & Resilience: preparing for future changes

  • Happy & Healthy: fostering community spirit.
