Green Awards 2019: the shortlist announced

Having concluded an extended judging process, we are pleased to announce the shortlist for The Drinks Business Green Awards 2019, which are designed to celebrate those brands and businesses that are doing as much as possible to reduce their impact on the environment.

The winner in each category will be announced during an awards ceremony on Wednesday 11 December between 3 and 5pm at The Club at The Ivy in London, where leading representatives from across the drinks industry will gather to toast the recipients of this year’s awards.

We have listed below all the companies that have been shortlisted for this year’s awards, except for those entered into the personality categories, who will be revealed on the night should they be recipients of an award.

The judges were particularly impressed at the quality of the entries this year, and it was clear that environmentally-aware businesses are focused on all aspects of being green, not just reducing carbon emissions.

It was also apparent that entrants, for the most part, had considered their pitch carefully, giving them the best chance possible of picking up an award.

However, to win big in the Green Awards, it is vital that you address comprehensively the requirements of the category, and give measurable evidence of change over the past three years, and particularly in the past 12 months, because these awards are given on an annual basis.
