As an independent sustainability awards programme, we enjoy – and demand – to work in partnership with like-minded organisations. Our awards entry writing workshops running in January are a good example of that ideal in action where we’re teaming with Leeds Building Society (LBS) and Hammerson, who are each hosting one of our upcoming events.
The workshops, in association with with Boost Awards, the world’s first and largest award writing agency, are designed to help companies and organisations hone their award entry writing skills. Those attending will also get to meet some of the judges that have 3+ years’ experience of judging the Global Good Awards and ask them what they look for in projects.
The workshop in Leeds takes place on 15 January 2020 at the HQ of Leeds Building Society (LBS). The company won Bronze this year in Global Good Awards’ Company of the Year category. As a mutual, it’s always been LBS’s responsibility to do business in a sensible way that puts its members’ interest first. That means always operating to the highest levels of trust and integrity in everything it does, whether that’s making considered lending decisions, or working with borrowers in financial difficulty. Since launching its 2020 targets in 2017, the Society has helped 135,000 more people to save, and 95,000 more people to have the home they want, including 25,000 first time buyers. It has invested over 10,500 volunteering hours, donated £700,000 to good causes, and increased customer satisfaction scores above 91%. See more here.
Hammerson will be hosting the London event on 23 January 2020 at its King Cross base. Its sustainability vision is to create retail destinations that deliver net positive impacts economically, socially and environmentally. Positive Places is its strategy for making that happen. It also aims to become net positive for carbon, resource use, water and socio-economic impacts by 2030. To deliver on this bold new objective, it will have to design, build and manage its retail destinations in a way that is good for the communities in which they operate; for those they employ; and for the environment.

There is also a further workshop in Brighton on 20 January 2020. For full details of all the workshops see here.
