National Business Award for Sustainability

English Tea Shop, an independent speciality and organic tea company, has won the Business Award for Sustainability at the National Business Awards.

The award recognises English Tea Shop’s mission to change the perception that sustainability and growth don’t mix. Embedding sustainable development at the very core of the business, English Tea Shop isn’t just focussed on sustainability because it’s the right thing to do, but because it is precisely that which helps the business grow rapidly, say the firm, with Creating Shared Value (CSV) – finding opportunities for growth in sustainable development – being key to English Tea Shop’s fast growth, report the firm.

Not only does English Tea Shop ensure farmers are paid well over the Fairtrade minimum price, they offer a wide range of support, advice and technical know-how, point out the company.
