The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony taking place on Friday, December 7 at the Green Lawns Hotel, Falmouth.
Awards co-ordinator, Gitty Ankers MBE, from the Environment Agency, said: "The aim of Cornwall Sustainability Awards is to encourage, reward and gain recognition for some of the excellent work businesses in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly are doing to improve their sustainability.
"We had many excellent applications this year and the initial shortlisting process gets harder every year and we're happy we can hand over the hard work to the judges to select the overall winners."
The judging team comprised of Matt Coleman from Health, Safety and Environmental Solutions; Mark Summers, head of environmental services for Cornwall NHS Trusts; Chris Pomfret, chair of the Cornwall Local Enterprise Partnership; Caroline Digby, the Eden Project; Daphne Skinnard, assistant managing editor at BBC Radio Cornwall; and Gitty Ankers MBE, senior environment officer for the Environment Agency.
The team was also joined by Jon Hyatt from Hendra Holiday Park, which was named Overall Winner at the 2011 awards.
Awards co-ordinator, Veryan Jones from Cornwall Council, said: "Over the years there have been some intense debates between judges in every category.
"As a result of this analysis the judges appear to have got it right as all the winners have proven to be outstanding, and many have gone on to win national and international awards.
"The great thing about these awards is that the businesses in Cornwall, who all take a lot of effort to enter, are rightly proud at being short listed, or winning."
