On Tuesday 2 November Finance for the Future awards celebrated the success of the finalists and winners, with our judges, distinguished guests in London and Glasgow and our virtually audience from the wider finance community in the UK and worldwide. Along with a video address from HRH The Prince of Wales, and live links with our event in Glasgow, supported by SSE, the winners were announced from the short list of 36 finalists

To coincide with the UN Climate Change Conference (COP26), Finance for the Future continues to drive the change needed by celebrating and rewarding finalists who are demonstrating climate leadership. Each of the finalists told a story of innovation, best practice, resilience and leadership from finance functions and the wider accounting and finance profession. We hope these stories will inspire, influence and inform you and the wider finance community towards greater action.
