YANA™ Active founders Charlotte & Sophie Wilson named Sustainability Entrepreneur of the Year for 2022!
The Great British Entrepreneur Awards, in partnership with Starling Bank, recognise the UK’s most inspiring entrepreneurial success stories for a decade and developed a community-oriented network of alumni which grows year on year.
The ceremony was held at Grosvenor House in London on 21st November 2021 and saw 1,400 entrepreneurs and colleagues join to celebrate a collective £2 billion generated in turnover and over 17,000 jobs.
YANA™ Active co-founder Sophie Wilson said “being recognised for consciously creating an ethical and sustainable business means a great deal to us, sustainability is embedded into our brand ethos and truly is part of YANA™’s DNA.”
YANA™ Active co-founder Charlotte Wilson added “creating an ethical and sustainable brand isn’t easy and it doesn’t happen overnight. Winning this GBEA award makes the challenges we’ve faced over the past three years and the hard work we’ve invested into the business, completely worth it. We know sustainability is immensely important for all businesses, and it confirms to us that YANA™ is heading in the right direction.”
Great British Entrepreneur Awards founder Francesca James said that the awards’ tenth anniversary was the biggest and best yet: “Celebrating Britain’s ambitious, driven and inspirational entrepreneurs for a decade has been an honour, and we’ve learnt so much from hearing all of their unique stories and perspectives.
“We’d like to congratulate all of our 2022 winners for all of their hard work and achievements - we look forward to following your lead into 2023 and beyond!”
