The national ‘green business’ awards scheme rewards best practice in environmental management and sustainable leadership, including landscape projects such as green walls and roofs, SuDS and public realm improvements.
The six award categories include: Health and Wellbeing, Innovative Technology, Innovative Spaces, Sustainable Transport, The Farsight Award for investment analysis and the Sir Peter Parker Award for leadership.
Last year the London Borough of Waltham Forest won the Travel and Transport award for its work on improving cycling conditions through redesigning roadspace and creating new public spaces, following its Mini-Holland funding win.
Investment bank Nomura won the Health and Wellbeing award for its new headquarters building at Angel Lane in part because of a kitchen garden on its roof.
The awards run by the London Sustainability Exchange and funded by the City of London Corporation.
City of London Corporation assistant town clerk and cultural hub director Peter Lisley said:
"We welcome organisations which have gone the extra mile and demonstrated excellence in sustainable development to apply.
"These awards have been running for 15 years now and we continue to be amazed at the exceptional work that London’s organisations are doing to make the capital a healthier and more environmentally friendly city. Such hard work can easily go unnoticed and we are privileged to be able to recognise and reward their good practice."
The ceremony will be hosted by Siemens at its technology centre ‘The Crystal’, in Royal Victoria docks, in June. The awards are free to enter and no charge is made for attending the awards ceremony.
Applications for the 2017 Awards are open until the 31st of March. Organisations can apply at www.lsx.org.uk.
