Sustainable Investment Awards 2023

Investment Week and Sustainable-Investment.com are pleased to invite entries for the Sustainable Investment Awards 2023, with a number of new categories added this year.

Now in their 17th year, these awards are intended to honour fund providers, research & ratings teams, wealth managers, fund selectors, service providers, consultancies and individuals who have a key part to play in the evolution of sustainable investing. 

We will celebrate the winners of the Sustainable Investment Awards at a special ceremony in London on 21 September 2023. 

Categories

This year we are pleased to announce a number of new categories including Best Sustainable Investment Consultancy, which is open to consultancies, PR and marketing firms, law firms and compliance firms supporting the sustainable investment industry in the UK.    

In addition, the Best Sustainable Investment Technology and Support Services Provider category is open to technology providers, platforms and support services providers in the UK who support the sustainable investment industry, sustainable investment propositions or help clients invest sustainably. The judges will consider: strength of proposition; key developments over the past 12 months; excellence in responding to changing client needs.

Other new categories include Newcomer Fund categories open to sustainable funds with between a one-year and three-year track record as at 31 January 2023, as well as categories for new launches over the past year.  

We are also welcoming entries for the Best Sustainable Investment Engagement Initiative and the Leaders Award for Excellence in ESG Integration in Investment Management.

Our categories for individuals include new awards for Best Sustainable Investment Wealth Manager (individual) and Best Sustainable Investment Fund Selector. 

Finally, we will once again be honouring our Rising Star Sustainable Investment Champion of the Year and celebrating the winner of the Outstanding Contribution to the Sustainable Investment Industry.

Methodology

Groups and individuals will only be considered if they submit an entry for these awards.

The entries are judged by a panel of sustainable investment experts from across the industry who will decide the shortlists and final winners. You can meet the panel here.

For the fund categories, the judges will consider factors including: strong performance record; strength of the team; meeting the fund's sustainable objectives; excellence in sustainable investing within the investment process; strong engagement record; effective client communication; wider fund impact; and key developments on the strategy in the past year.

For the other categories, entrants will have to provide examples of innovation, original thinking, inspiring leadership or wider industry impact in this area. Please see entry forms for category questions.
