The Findus Group has won the Management Award in this year's European Business Awards for the Environment. The awards recognise European businesses that make a particular contribution to sustainable development by combining innovation, economic viability, environmental concern and social responsibility. The winners were chosen from 141 entries from 24 EU and candidate countries.

Findus won for its "Fish for Life" project, promoting a long-term sustainable future for seafood. Started by Young’s Seafood, it is now also applied across Europe by Findus, the parent group. The jury commented that this initiative set a benchmark for responsible fishery management, promoting and sharing best practices both locally and internationally, with strong involvement of employees and other stakeholders.

Giving out the awards, European Environment Commissioner Janez Poto─Źnik said: "The more we are aware of the real and inherent value of our environment, the more effectively we will combine economic, social and environmental goals. The companies involved in the European Business Awards for the Environment are a key element in this – demonstrating clearly their innovative abilities and the economic sense of applying eco-technologies and processes."

Other winners recognised at the event held in Brussels on Wednesday evening, 2 June,  came from Belgium, Germany and Spain.
