Acre365 2017 Awards
Acre365 is an awards programme which shines a light on individuals making rapid achievements in CR, energy, health & safety, environment & sustainability.
Placing talented professionals in roles where they can affect change is core to Acre's
mission. Acre365 is a recognition programme which seeks to identify and celebrate individuals who have made real progress on social, environmental or safety issues in their first year at an organisation.
By identifying high impact initiatives that people have contributed to, Acre365 2017 will continue to share best-practice and innovation with the wider sustainability community so that others can learn and be inspired.
This year’s programme is open to individuals who started with their new employer after 1st October 2015.
Whilst Acre365 focuses on the first 12 months in a new role, shorter time frames will also be considered where a significant impact has been achieved. This may be the case for contract and interim professionals who play a crucial role in the sustainable economy.
ENTRY CLOSED Entry for Acre365 2017 is now closed. Thank you to everyone that entered. Judging will be taking place very soon and those shortlisted will be announced in June 2017.
