On receiving the award, Caroline said: "Green businesses play a vital role in our economy, not only in terms of their environmental performance, but also in many jobs which they create.
"Far from being a distraction from our current economic difficulties, they are one firm route out of them - that's why we need a more positive Government framework to enable them to flourish."
Over 350 business leaders, politicians, and campaigners from across the UK's green business community gathered in London for the second annual BusinessGreen Leaders Awards.
Judges praised the quality of the shortlisted entries in all categories, including the innovation and ingenuity of sustainability projects being pursued by the UK's leading green companies.
