Footprint Award for Economic Sustainability We're delighted to report that Adnams' work on embedding sustainability throughout our business has been recognised at the recent Footprint Awards. The Footprint Awards recognise sustainability in the hospitality industry and is organised by the ‘Footprint’ group. Footprint's objective is to enable businesses to operate more sustainably and responsibly whilst enjoying greater commercial and reputational success. Economic Sustainability Winners Photo There are 14 award categories, with 3 companies shortlisted for each award. Adnams is very proud to have been awarded the "Economic Sustainability Award". The judges commented, “Changing thought process using the Environmental gearing principle is clearly yielding environmental benefits and engagement within the business and supplier base - Adnams should be commended for this. A really detailed and innovative approach, which encompasses a myriad of thinking.” One of the Adnams values is “refreshingly responsible”. This means we aim to operate a sustainable and responsible business at the core of what we do, not in addition to our thinking, instead it guides all of our actions. For the past few years, the Adnams team has developed a strong link between our environmental and economic sustainability programmes. The Environmental team call it ‘Environmental Gearing’ and we have been recognised for it thanks to our innovative leadership approach that links how sustainability professionals can talk to finance professionals so that everyone understands the importance (and benefit) of acting sustainably.

We have always said 'we're in it for the long-term', and Adnams has every intention of operating well into the future. To enable this to happen, it is imperative that we operate sustainably throughout our supply chain. You can read more about the awards and find out about all the award winners here.
