The Hustle Awards: Sustainability Award

The Hustle Awards are back for 2024, and Startups Magazine is here to help you through the entry process.

The Hustle Awards are the networking event of the year – and are also the unrivalled badge of excellence and the benchmark for all startup businesses to aspire to.

Our mission is to:

  • Recognise the outstanding achievements of individuals, companies, and innovation
  • Raise standards across the sector, with a particular focus on diversity, inclusion, and sustainability
  • Inspire and celebrate the creative and entrepreneurial journey
  • Deliver a rigorous and transparent judging process with a panel of business leaders

So, with that in mind, we are here to help you decide on the best category for you. Next up: Sustainability Award!

Sustainability is slowly but surely becoming increasingly important to businesses, and eventually, being green will be at the heart of all new businesses. Startups seem to be extremely forward-thinking with sustainability, but this category is for a startup and business idea that is all about sustainability and having a positive impact on the environment. If your solution focuses on sustainability, or helping others be more sustainable, then we want to hear from you.

Who is eligible for this award?

Those eligible for this award are individuals, teams, or businesses whose working practices or products make a demonstrable change to improve the environment. This award will only be given for something that has had a true impact, and has made a genuine difference to the environment.

Tell us why you should win

This isn’t the time to be humble about the support that you extend to startups and entrepreneurs, you need to be loud and proud and tell us why YOU should win this award.

When entering, outline why you are entering this award, and convince the judges that your entry should be considered. How have you innovated and differentiated yourself from the competition? What impact have you made?

Within the entry, please include evidence of environmental benefits that this company or solution delivers. Ideally, some real data should be used to substantiate any claims made, through statistics, charts, or other data.

Testimonials to back up your claims should be obtained from clients, partners, and industry figures, rather than employees of the organisation.

Supporting materials are highly recommended to help the judges make their decision. However, do be mindful of what supporting materials are used, as it’s limited to up to three images and one video link per entry.

Good luck!
