World Sustainability Awards

Committing to progress in corporate sustainability requires a passion for change and resilience in order to succeed.

Businesses are having a powerful impact on improving sustainability in many ways, from the role their ESG campaigns are playing in raising sustainability awareness, to how they are designing their products and services to benefit both people and the planet.

We are striving to continue this momentum with the 2024 World Sustainability Awards spotlighting the outstanding organisations, leaders and their teams who are driving change and helping to build a better future.

Entries are now open for the World Sustainability Awards 2024.

Click on each category below for more detail about what the judges will be looking for.

Carbon Reduction Award​

Partnered By

Recognising an organisation that is significantly reducing greenhouses gas emissions in its operations and value chain

Companies across the world are committing to reducing their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and ensuring global warming is kept to below 1.5°C. Leaders in this space are translating this intent into action, making fast progress to reduce their CO2 footprint – both in their direct operations and the wider value chain.

CO2 reductions include all three scopes of the business’s footprint:

  • Scope 1: Direct emissions from owned or controlled sources.
  • Scope 2: Indirect emissions from purchased energy.
  • Scope 3: Emissions in the wider value chain, including downstream in consumer use and upstream in the supply chain.

Judges will be looking for entries that highlight elements of how an organisation has:

  • Reduced GHGs across all three scopes.
  • Developed tools and techniques to address emissions.
  • Established metrics to demonstrate progress on GHG reductions.

Eligibility: Open to any company that has reduced CO2 levels across its direct operations and its value chain. Outlined initiatives must have been delivered and demonstrated an impact between June 2022 and December 2023.

Sustainable Supply Chain Award

Partnered By

Showcasing a company that demonstrates collaboration and innovation in addressing ESG issues in the supply chain

Supply chains account for a large proportion of many organisations’ environmental and social footprint. Addressing these impacts is a challenge for every business, with the size and complexity of modern-day supply chains making progress slow. This category recognises teams that are adopting innovative methods to identify ESG issues in their supply chains and are working collaboratively with suppliers to effect change.

Judges will be looking for entries that highlight elements of how the company:

  • Improves supplier environmental or social sustainability standards with quantifiable metrics.
  • Collaborates and innovates with suppliers to drive progress.
  • Ensures sustainability is embedded in regular purchasing activities.

Eligibility: Open to any company addressing sustainability in its supply chain. Outlined initiatives must have been delivered and made an impact between June 2022 and December 2023.

Sustainable Technology Provider of the Year Award

Recognising a technology provider that is having a transformative impact on the environment or society

Technology plays a crucial role in sustainability. Whether by reducing CO2 levels in the manufacturing process or gaining better visibility of supplier impacts, businesses cannot progress the ESG agenda without technological support. This category recognises technology providers that are helping accelerate corporate environmental or social performance through their solutions.

Judges will be looking for how the provider’s technology:

  • Provides value for money and a strong return on investment.
  • Addresses a real and significant challenge or opportunity in ESG.
  • Has been developed with usability as a priority.
  • Is future-proofed and able to fit within typical corporate environments.

Social Impact Award

Recognising organisations that are transforming people’s lives through how they do business

Companies can have a positive impact on how society functions. Whether by developing social initiatives through their core operations, the goods and services they provide, or throughout their supply chains, businesses have a far-reaching capacity to influence people’s lives. This category recognises an organisation that can demonstrate a positive impact on society through the way in which they do business.

Judges will be looking for entries that highlight how the company:

  • Positively impacts society through a programme or project.
  • Collaborates internally and externally to ensure the business can influence people’s lives for the better.

Eco Design Award

Celebrating a newly launched product or service with sustainable design principles at its core

Both people and the planet benefit from products and services that are designed with sustainability in mind. Whether by encouraging efficiency, durability or reusability, leaders in this category are leveraging sustainability in design to improve ESG conditions across their end-to-end value chains. This award recognises one such product or service launched over the past 12 months.

Judges will be looking for entries that highlight how the new product or service:

  • Integrated ESG criteria in its concept and design.

Biodiversity Award

Recognising organisations that are going above and beyond to preserve the natural environment

Every business has a biodiversity footprint.

This category recognises a business that is mitigating this impact and taking tangible steps to protect biodiversity.

Judges will be looking for entries that highlight how the company:

  • Has developed a robust and ambitious biodiversity strategy, with targets in place that proactively address biodiversity loss.

  • Links its ESG strategy with an impactful communications campaign.
  • The ESG benefits this campaign has delivered, evidenced by metrics.
