The Crown Estate’s head of sustainability announced as president of tve’s film awards

Leading CSR expert Claudine Blamey has taken on the presidency of the seventh tve global sustainability film awards. Claudine is head of sustainability and stewardship for The Crown Estate, a £13bn real estate business specialising in commercial property in central London, regional retail and offshore wind. It also has a substantial rural and coastal portfolio and manages the seabed around England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Claudine played a key role in the founding of the UK’s Institute of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability (ICRS) and was its Chair from 2015 – 2017.

‘I’ve been involved with the tve Awards for several years now and I’ve seen at first hand how they bring the Sustainable Development Goals to life for business,’ says Claudine, who is responsible for the sustainability strategy for The Crown Estate’s business. ‘High profile winners last year, for example, focused on plastic pollution of our oceans and sustainability of cities – crucial challenges that businesses can and must deliver on.

‘I see the awards as showing business how to deliver the Goals – showcasing the most cutting edge business thinkers globally, as we find solutions to the challenges our planet is facing.’

The tve global sustainability film awards, and gala dinner held in aid of the environmental media charity tve, take place at BAFTA, 195 Piccadilly, in London on Monday 26 November 2018. The competition will open for entries, and tickets will go on sale, in May 2018. Last year’s winners included Co-op Group, Selfridges, Sky News and C40 Cities. A full list of winners, and videos of the awards, can be found on the Awards website.
