The Business & Finance ESG Awards celebrates those who are actively striving to address and progress ESG issues in an organisation.

The ESG Awards 

ESG provides a specific set of criteria, namely environmental, social, and governance, that companies can measure, benchmark and report against. The second annual ESG Awards will take place on 20th April, 2023.

ESG is vitally important because it relates to internal practices and policies that lead to effective decision making and, in turn, facilitates sustainable top-line growth.

Attracting over 100 entries from 80+ companies nationwide, the ESG Awards were established to recognise and celebrate individuals and groups who are actively striving to address environmental, social and governance issues. The Awards showcase the successes of ESG initiatives and examples of best practice, as well as highlighting the importance of transparency.

The Business & Finance ESG Awards held its inaugural ceremony in July 2022.

Norman Crowley, Founder and Group CEO of Cool Planet, received a special recognition award for his outstanding work as an ESG Leader.

He said: “We all have a responsibility to maintain our planet and our goal is to assist companies in doing so. It makes sense that a strong ESG proposition creates value for a company, and that is where Cool Planet enters the conversation.

“We help companies become more ESG conscious, saving them money at the same time. I believe that companies need to be encouraged and not forced to become more ESG conscious.”

With a variety of categories, the awards will showcase the successes of ESG initiatives, examples of best practice and highlight the importance of transparency in this area.
