The last year has seen some seminal moments for the global environmental agenda.  From the Sustainable Development Goals to the landmark climate change agreement in Paris, there is renewed momentum on solving some of our most challenging environmental issues.

We were delighted to see that many of the entries to the Asda Environmental Leadership Award are at the forefront of thought and action leadership, championing a new approach to managing environmental issues that moves away from reducing negative impacts towards building their business in a ‘smart’ way, so it will be resilient and prosperous for many years to come.
