Daniel McConnell, Business Post Editor comments:
“The Business Post invests more in ESG journalism than any other Irish national media outlet. In addition to daily news and analysis, plus a dedicated ESG newsletter, we produce the leading environmental journalism podcast Five Degrees of Change, hosted by Daniel Murray. The PwC Business Post Sustainable Business Awards have drawn considerable attention since their foundation, and we look forward to a substantial volume of entries from both big and small once again this year. We are also very pleased to note the growing momentum Sustainable Business Awards Showcase events, which highlight the best practice found at winning organisations, and provide a network and inspiration to those seeking to become our next award winners. We thank PwC for their continuing support of our independent journalism, particularly with respect to our climate and environmental coverage.”
David McGee , PwC Ireland ESG Leader, The awards celebrate best in class Irish businesses across a wide range of ESG categories that invest in and promote sustainable practices, innovation and leadership. At PwC, we are working with clients across all industries as they address their reporting and transformation requirements to meet their climate and sustainability goals.
We have made our own world wide science based commitment to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2030. We are delighted to again partner with the Business Post on this important initiative and look forward to the Awards ceremony on 21 March 2024
