2degrees unveils top 25 under 25s working in sustainable businessJanuary 2015
2degrees, the online collaboration platform and service for sustainable business, has unveiled its list of the Top 25 Under 25s for 2014.
Among those that made the cut are professionals working within large corporates, such as Marks & Spencer, Rolls-Royce, United Technologies Corporation and Veolia, as well as entrepreneurs, analysts, engineers, and consultants.
More than 70 candidates were assessed as part of the judging process to find this year’s Top 25, which played out during the second half of this year across 2degrees, the world’s biggest community for sustainable business professionals.
Those in the running were asked to complete a submission paper and invite their peers and colleagues to write recommendations and testimonials – which 2degrees used as the basis of their final decision.
Tom Idle, editor-in-chief at 2degrees, said: “As the world faces up to some seriously big challenges, this new generation at the early stage of their careers in sustainability are incredibly important. These are the business, community, NGO and political leaders of tomorrow – and thankfully they are, largely, innovative, entrepreneurial and impatient for change.
“Finding our Top 25 has been a fascinating, and incredibly tough, process. I’m delighted to unveil this list of hugely inspiring individuals – full of ideas, passion and commitment to making things happen – in organizations big and small, the world over.”
