Cornwall Business Awards

Best Third Sector Business - sponsored by The Eden Project

Best Third Sector Business - sponsored by The Eden Project

The third sector currently enjoys widespread public and political support. 

Businesses in this sector are established primarily with social or environmental objectives and their surpluses are principally reinvested for that same purpose in the business or in the community, rather than being driven by the need to maximise profit for shareholders and owners.

The judges are looking for third sector businesses (charities, social enterprises, other not-for-profit organisations, etc) driven by social and environmental aims that have set clear objectives, met or exceeded expectations and forecasts, demonstrated tangible evidence of success and have a clear and compelling vision for the future.

The Eden Project is wholly owned by the Eden Trust, an educational charity. They use exhibits, events, workshops and educational programmes to remind people what nature gives to us and to help people to learn how to look after it in return. They welcome over a million people every year to join in with their events and learn from their exhibits. All money raised goes to further the aims of the Trust.
