Green awards have two clear winners.. dublinchambernews.

CLEARSTREAM Solutions and ABP Food Group took the top prizes of the Dublin Sustainable Business Challenge 2013.

Last week's ceremony in Wood Quay Venue saw six finalists battle it out for the title of the capital's greenest business.

The Small Business of the Year Category featured the Convention Centre Dublin, Django's Hostel and Clearstream Solutions.

ESB, Towers Watson and ABP Food Group competed in the Company of the Year Category.

The six competitors presented their sustainability strategies to the audience and a panel of judges and then faced a Q&A session.

The competition was tight, with representatives from each firm using their five minutes to persuade the judges that their green initiatives were worthy of the prize. Hosting the event was Paul Hallam, Chair of Dublin Chamber's Green Economy Forum, and attendees also heard from City Council Director Peter Finnegan.

Clearstream Solutions and ABP Food Group proved to be the most convincing finalists on the night and were crowned the winners after the judges' deliberations.

Clearstream Solutions founder and CEO Brian O'Kennedy said it was an "honour to have our efforts to support the development of Corporate Sustainability in Ireland recognised". Robert Behan of ABP Food Group added the award was "recognition of the substantial steps ABP has taken to grow its business in a sustainable manner".

The awards were sponsored by KPMG and Maples.
