The shortlist for the 2013 Footprint Awards has been revealed with Café Spice Namaste, Spirit Pub Company and Brakes named among the most sustainable hospitality businesses. 

Cyrus Todiwala, who won the organisation's Special Achievement Award in 2011,​ has seen his flagship restaurant receive a nomination in the Stakeholder Engagement Award category while contract caterer Brakes has been recognised for its sustainable use of natural resources.

Nick Fenwicke-Clennell, Footprint Media Group chief executive, said: “The sheer number and quality of entries demonstrates that the way our industry perceives sustainability has changed enormously in recent years.  The very notion of sustainability having once been a ‘buzz word’ has become outdated."

The winners in the eleven award categories listed below will be named on 23 May in a ceremony to be held at RIBA. The winners of the Community Vote and Special Achievement Award will also be revealed on the 23 May.
