The Observer has announced the shortlist for its annual ethical awards.
The awards include a mix of reader-voted categories and judged categories and all were judged earlier this month by a panel of ethically-minded celebrities and experts including Colin Firth and Livia Firth; poet, Ben Okri; model, Lily Cole; and TV presenter, Ben Fogle.
The Observer’s Lucy Siegle who founded the awards said of this year’s judging, ‘There was real energy in the judging process this year. Notably this year we focused on dynamic supply chains and looked for projects and individuals that took a global view of environmental issues and understood how interconnected we all are. In the run up to Rio+20 we really felt we had the wind in our sails. All of our winners are ready to fight for ecological and social justice on our behalf.’
