Head of Brand Strategy at Nokia Christine Diamente shared her views on this year’s quality of entrants: ‘Every year Ethical Corp receives high quality submissions for all of its categories. This year however, judges were very impressed with the excellence to choose from in categories such as sustainability communications and sustainability reporting. There is more work to be done by the industry however in areas such as business to business partnerships and employee engagement. It has been a real honour to preside such an outstanding panel of judges and submissions. Congratulations to all—this is proof of the importance sustainability is playing in mainstream business, organizations and communities worldwide.”

Echoing Christine, Lucy Carver, Director of the Bigger Picture from Sky commented on: “It was an honour to judge this year’s Ethical Corp awards, and I was both inspired and excited by the quality of the submissions, reflecting the groundswell of great work going on in sustainability, globally. The depth of the discussion amongst the judges reflected that there were very many quality submissions which is wonderful to see. Thank you to all those companies who put themselves forwards – we look forward to seeing how your brilliant journeys continue””.
