Guardian Sustainable Business Awards

Guardian Sustainable2

We have been nominated for another award! This time the Guardian Sustainable Business Awards have acknowledged our SunnyMoney Schools campaign and shortlisted us in the Communicating Sustainability category.

This latest nomination comes at a very exciting time for SolarAid. As a leading international charity it is always pleasing when your work is recognised by experts in the field. We have recently been selected as finalists for the Ashden 2013 awards after our recent sales figures eclipsed all expectations. As John Keane mentioned in a previous blog, we have sold more solar lights in rural Africa in the last six months than in the previous six years.

It is precisely because of this achievement that the Guardian have recognised our work, and specifically our fantastic SunnyMoney sales programme. As the criteria states, they were‘looking for cross-platform campaigns that have made an impact, campaigns that have taken sustainability to the masses, secured strong response and made a big difference.’

We are thrilled to have our work recognised in this way. We are in illustrious company with Recyclebank, BskyB and Neal’s Yard all nominated in the same category. Best of luck to all those involved.

Watch this space for details of the winners, due to be released on 16th May 2013.
