2019 Climate Leadership

This year there is the potential for an additional Finance for the Future Award to be presented, recognising Climate Leadership. There is no separate entry form for this award; the winner will be selected from this year’s finalists from across all the categories, based on the significance of Climate Leadership to each entry. 

As this is an additional award, there is no requirement to discuss climate change in your entry award if not appropriate. Entries to the Climate Leadership award will be considered as part of the assessment and judging process for the other award categories entered.

We have provided some examples here of what this could include. This is not intended to be an exhaustive list:
