THE AIMS OF THE GREEN WORLD AWARDS
• To improve environmental performance
• To encourage the efficient use of resources.
• To enhance the competitiveness of organisations.
• To support the wider goals of sustainable development, including social benefits through
community and staff involvement.
• To help Green World Award winners to benefit from their environmental endeavours.
WHAT THE JUDGES ARE LOOKING FOR
Our judges are totally independent. They are selected because of their appropriate
environmental and technical knowledge, their professional backgrounds and relevant
experience. The judges can award up to 10 points on each of the following criteria.
They also have the flexibility to award up to 10 additional bonus points for entries they believe have particular merit. You do not have to be able to ‘tick all the boxes’ to submit an entry.
• Environmental benefit: Does the entry clearly identify clear environmental benefit?
• Innovation: Does the entry demonstrate new/novel solutions to existing problems?
• Commitment to achieve by senior personnel involved: Have staff demonstrated
• Social benefit: Have communities or areas benefited?
• Economic benefit: Have reductions or savings been achieved?
• Quantitative evidence of impact: Are the theories supported by measurable improvements?
• Future further development plans: How do you intend to move forward?
• Possible adoption by others: Can others replicate the procedures?
HOW TO ENTER
You can submit an entry that highlights one particular environmental project; or you can submit more than one entry – each one covering different aspects of your environmental activity.
Or you can submit one entry that covers your entire environmental policy and achievements. The choice is yours.
For each paper, simply write up to 300 words to summarise your entry; and you
then have another 2,000 words to provide the details and results.
Our judges will seek evidence to substantiate any claims made, and you can add
up to six A4 pages of evidence – testimonials, results, graphs, photographs, etc.
Each entry will entitle you to a free ticket for the prestigious presentation ceremony in December.
The Mill House
