CREST Sustainable Business Awards has returned for 2022 following its successful launch as Surrey’s only awards uniquely aimed at recognising and celebrating business sustainability by enterprises and organisations.


CREST Sustainable Business Awards have captured the spirit of our time. Surrey’s only awards uniquely aimed at recognising and celebrating business sustainability by enterprises and organisations, they are seen as an added value to action to protect our environment and achieve zero emission targets.

Launched in the midst of a global pandemic as CREST21, the awards are to be an annual highlight on Surrey’s event calendar for the local, national and international business operating within the county. Preparation for CREST22 Awards is already underway and are due to take place at the WWF’s Living Planet Centre, in Woking, the site of its UK headquarters.

The awards were initiated by the Woking News & Mail in association with the University of Surrey’s Centre for the Environment and Sustainability in 2019 but their launch was delayed by coronavirus restrictions before they were finally realised as a hybrid event in May 2021.

It is anticipated that elements of the hybrid event provided useful insights that will be carried over into CREST22 Awards, which is being supported for the second year running by Surrey County Council as Headline Sponsor.

CREST22 Business Awards are due to be held on 19 May 2022 at the WWF’s UK Headquarters Living Planet Centre in Woking.
