Groups 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.

For the fund categories, they 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.

Terms and Conditions The judges' decision is final. The judges have the right to determine the standards of an award and to withhold an award in any category if, in their view, the entries are not of sufficient merit.
