The company were presented with the award at a prestigious ceremony at the Chartered Accountants Hall, the headquarters of the ICAEW in the City of London. Opened by Prince Charles, the awards commend organisations who are transforming the way traditional business is done, using financial leadership to create sound business models through embedding sustainability into their operations and strategy.

bio-bean saw off stiff competition including Schroders. The Finance for the Future Awards commented: “The judges were impressed by the ethos of Bio-bean, driving us all to view waste as resource, along with their innovative go-to-market sourcing strategy, often turning suppliers into users of their product.”

Arthur Kay, bio-bean’s CEO, said: “bio-bean is a business with embedded sustainability values but it is also first and foremost a commercial offering. Due to bio-bean’s pioneer status as a world-first company integrating with established systems, our financial proposition has to be extremely resilient. bio-bean bridges waste management and green energy and therefore creates significant financial opportunities.”
