After a short pause the Cornwall Sustainability Awards are back!

We’re doing things differently this year due to Covid restrictions. Our awards ceremony will be virtual, we have a new website and we have a new nominations process.

The awards ceremony will be held virtually on Friday 4 December 2020. We’re asking for nominations rather than applications this year as we realise that companies might not have as much time this year to apply due to catching up on business after Covid lockdown restrictions.

Anyone can nominate a business for one of the following categories as long as the company is based in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly:

  • Green Innovation in a time of Coronavirus
  • Circular Economy
  • Environmental Growth
  • Carbon Neutral

Nominations can be submitted online via our new website from 25 September until 30 October. Judging will take place in early November by a panel of representatives from Cornwall Council, Cornwall & Isles of Scilly Growth Hub, Cornwall & Isles of Scilly Local Nature Partnership, Cornwall & Isles of Scilly Local Enterprise Partnership and Cornwall Chamber of Commerce. Shortlisted companies will be announced prior to the awards ceremony on Friday 4 December.

The Cornwall Sustainability Awards are sponsored by Tevi (Cornish for ‘grow’) which is a unique and exciting EU-funded venture to create both economic and environmental growth in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.

Tevi Project Manager Dr Dan Bloomfield said: “Everyone at Tevi is very excited about CSA this year.In what has been a really tough year for everyone, there is still much to celebrate.We’ve been helping dozens and dozens of enterprises to invest in new products, new services, new ways of doing things that help make the economy of Cornwall more circular, and which helps the environment grow.We are really looking forward to showing our support to all, and for sharing our plans for the future.”

Cornwall Council Cabinet Portfolio Holder for Environment and Public Protection, Cllr Rob Nolan, said: “We are delighted to have the Cornwall Sustainability Awards back after a short pause in 2019. The categories this year reflect Cornwall’s response to the climate emergency and the changing world we’ve all been in living with the Covid pandemic. We know there are lots of amazing businesses out there doing great work and this is a chance for them to shine and lead future environmental growth. Many of our previous winners have gone on to win national and international awards and become leaders in their field.”
