Sedex reveals businesses shortlisted for global Sustainability Awards, celebrating improvement and innovation in supply chains

We’re delighted to announce the shortlist for our global Sustainability Awards!

Celebrating the businesses driving improvements in their supply chains, our Awards recognise innovation, progress and leadership in ESG (environment, social and governance).

Across entries from six continents, our hand-picked shortlist highlights companies that have made major improvements, utilised intelligent solutions, and created a lasting, positive impact on people or the environment.

The Awards cover three categories of Data & Insights, Community & Collaboration, and Technology & Innovation. An expert judging panel will select the final winners, who will be announced at our Xplore Sustainability conference.

I am incredibly impressed by the standard of entries from such a wide range of sectors and countries, including well-known brands as well as smaller businesses. Their entries highlight how hard so many companies are working to find new ways and test smart solutions to solve sustainability challenges.
