We are thrilled to announce that for the second consecutive year, Circular Communities Scotland is sponsoring the Environmental Social Enterprise Award at the Social Enterprise Awards Scotland.

The Social Enterprise Awards Scotland have returned for 2023, honouring the remarkable achievements and positive impact of social enterprises across the country. These awards are an excellent platform to showcase the outstanding work and active role that social enterprises play in building social and environmental justice in our communities.

Applications for the 2023 Social Enterprise Awards Scotland are open until July 10th at 9am!

All social enterprises operating in Scotland as well as individuals working or volunteering in Scotland are eligible to enter. This year, three new categories have been introduced to provide even more opportunities for recognition: ‘Building Diversity, Inclusion, Equity and Justice Award’, ‘Tech for Good Award’, and ‘Social Enterprise Volunteer Champion Award’.

These categories complement the existing six award categories, including the ‘Environmental Social Enterprise Award’. By sponsoring this category, Circular Communities Scotland reaffirms our commitment to supporting organisations that actively contribute to the circular economy, promote sustainability and work towards a environmentally just society.

We’d like to actively invite our members and all environmental social enterprises from across Scotland to enter into this category, to have the opportunity for your hard work to be shared and celebrated. Take a look below to see the criteria you need to meet to enter this award.
