RSPCA calls for entries for Good Business Awards

The RSPCA is urging fashion retailers to enter its Good Business Awards, which recognised ethical business approaches to animal welfare in the fashion, cosmetics and food industries.

According to RSPCA commissioned research from MORI, 57% of the public see animal welfare as an important ethical issue to consider when buying a product, up from 48% a year ago.

Entries will be judged on the basis of their practices in the selling, sourcing and labeling of fur, sourcing of leather and other animal skin, innovation relating to animal welfare in the last 12 months and company aspirations regarding animal welfare.

The winners will be picked by an independent panel of industry experts and will be given the RSPCA Good Business Awards logo to use on relevant products and promotions for a year.

Marks & Spencer and Wildlife Works both scooped awards at last year's event. The fashion category is in association with Drapers.

The closing date for entries is Friday June 27 and the awards take place on October 9 at the Natural history Museum. For more information and an entry form go to or call 0300 123 0488.
