Pea Business Awards 2012: Shortlist of finalists announced!

The People and Environment Achievement Business Awards (PEABs) have been launched to celebrate how green initiatives can be good for business as well as the planet. The new Awards will showcase excellence and innovation as demonstrated by an individual or team within an organisation of any shape or size, whether from the public and private sector, whose contribution to the "greening" of UK businesses has been genuinely effective.


The 2012 finalists have just been announced for the inaugural awards – and we’re delighted to see that quite a few of our nominations have got onto the shortlist!


The winners will be announced on Thursday 26th January 2012 at The Orangery, Kensington Palace – so keep an eye on this website to see who won.
