Now in their third year, the Guardian Sustainable Business
Awards set out to reward innovation and impact in sustainable
The Guardian website states the following about this year's
awards: "There are plenty of people working in both large and small
organisations who deserve recognition for helping build
sustainability into business.
"Innovation and impact are as important as each other and we've
shaped our 2013 categories so that we can reward both."
"We are delighted that Shared Interest has been recognised in
the innovation category of the Guardian Sustainable Business
"Shared Interest is unique in that it offers UK investors the
opportunity to support fair trade businesses exclusively.
"By only working with organisations that are fair trade
certified, we know that we support those dedicated to creating
sustainable businesses and communities, and meet robust
environmental standards in doing so.
"However, these achievements would not have been possible
without our investors, volunteers, customers, and staff. We want to
thank all of these supporters who help in making the Shared
Interest business model what it is today."
