Theme - Creating Sustainable Value

With sustainable development being an especially relevant theme this year as Scotland hosts the UN Climate Change Conference (COP26), Quality Scotland will be playing our part with our annual Scottish Awards for Business Excellence based on the theme of Creating Sustainable Value.

Looking to the year ahead, the newly updated EFQM Model launched for 2020 is based upon the UN Sustainable Development Goals and encourages organisations to consider their impact on the ecosystems in which they operate. 

Following on from our previous awards on the themes of Sustainability and Past:Present:Future, this awards ceremony will continue to look at opportunities to help sustain excellence in organisations across Scotland.

We look forward to celebrating the achievements of our member organisations who will be awarded Levels of Excellence and to announce the winner of the overall award for the highest performing organisation this year.
