‘If we really care about sustainability, we can’t think about tomorrow. We have to think about the world in fifty years’ time. Our children’s world, their children’s world.’ Neil Armstrong, chairman and CEO of leading support services supplier Fastflow Group, main sponsor of the 2016 and 2015 Awards.
For the fifth year running the tve Global Sustainability Film Awards will put the spotlight on companies driving environmental and social change.
Companies enter their own films of up to 10 minutes in length. This year categories reflect the global goals for sustainable development, agreed by world leaders in 2015. These goals set ambitious targets for world development, eradicating poverty and hunger; ensuring good health, quality education and gender equality; and setting targets for affordable and clean energy, climate action and responsible consumption and production.
The awards are tve‘s main fundraising event. In 2015 40 films were entered from around the world. Through the awards, tve shares solutions for a sustainable future.
‘This year – 2015 – has been an extraordinary year for advancing many of the sustainability goals we hold dear…It won’t happen by itself – everyone needs to play their part.’ Camilla Toulmin, chair of tve, speaking at the tve Global Sustainability Film Awards 2015 in association with Fastflow Group.
tve’s mission to inspire change
