And entries are still being encouraged from companies who think they are working harder and smarter than their competitors to create a business edge.

They can come from people nominating their own businesses or from third parties.

The awards are judged by a panel of impartial respected members of the local business community. Winners receive a trophy and the right to use the awards logo on letterheads and marketing.

One business backing the awards night is Veolia Environmental Services, who are sponsoring our Environment Award.

A spokesman said: “Veolia Environmental Services are delighted to be sponsoring the Environment Awards. Since 2006 we have been helping Nottinghamshire County Council and the seven Borough/ District Councils of Nottinghamshire to manage household waste created in the County.

“Alongside the County County Council we are working hard to reduce the amount of waste that is sent to landfill and have a target of recycling and composting at least 52% of household waste by 2020.

“We operate a Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) in Mansfield that can sort up to 85,000 tonnes of recyclables from Nottinghamshire households per year.
