Clean Up Britain, the national anti-litter and fly-tipping organisation, is today launching the Green Champions Award, in collaboration with four industry-leading partners.
These are Event Cup Solutions, FSG, Reconomy and Zero Waste Events.
The Green Champions Award is about asking organisations to embrace sustainable operating practices and to educate their key stakeholders, be that customers, festival-goers, fans or students and staff.
“Quite simply, we’re asking – and helping – organisations to achieve the highest standards of environmental behaviour.
In the wake of the COVID-19 crisis, we’re all even more aware of the fragile nature of our global eco-system. There is now an acute need for organisations and individuals alike to embrace more sustainable behaviour. In fact, many consumers are, increasingly, demanding it”.
Since Covid-19 emerged, Kantar, the leading data insights consultancy, has reported that over 49% of people say that they now “actively seek out companies and brands that offer ways to offset their impact on the environment”.
The Green Champions Award covers five specific areas:
“It seems evident that the social responsibility expectation of consumers has become more demanding and discerning. The corporate reputation of an organisation can, undoubtedly, be enhanced through transparent evidence of its sustainable environmental practices. That’s what the Green Champions Award helps deliver”.

I would like to try and get involved somehow?Me and my staff have been litter pickering a certain area of Canvey Island in Essex since April.We then join a local litter group in our area Castle Point Clean Up Crew but we have become disillusioned with the group as they seem to focus on litter picks rather than find a solution to the problem i.e what are the council and there contractors doing. Councillors must be laughing
behind our backs when a membership of 533 seems to be doing the work of the contractor.
Hope you can help?
Good that consumers are interested in this – hopefully more pressure will help see some action.
