Businesses in the North West Called on for Entries into the Global Good Awards 2023

Organisations in the North West that are striving for social and environmental change are invited to enter the ninth annual Global Good Awards. Open to companies, organisations and individuals who are blazing the trail for purpose-driven sustainability and ethical leadership, the Awards acknowledges leaders who are achieving practical, real-world impact that is both scalable and replicable – and who have inspiring stories to tell.

The Global Good Awards have a track record of recognising game-changers in the push to tackle climate and social change, with past winners including Y.O.U Underwear, ITV, Toybank, Refuaid, Octopus Energy, Tideway, Hubbub, CapGemini, WWF and Triodos, to name a few. The Awards have also taken great care to ‘walk the talk’ across all areas of sustainability. In 2018, they were the first awards scheme in the world to be accredited as ‘Outstanding’ by the Awards Trust Mark, retaining it every year since. The rating reflected the Global Good Awards’ commitment to running a scheme with the highest standards of ethical behaviour and transparency. Meanwhile, the Awards’ commitments to sustainability include a fully plant-based menu since 2018 and participation in the 1% for Planet and CoolEarth initiatives.

This year Awards’ organisers are making big changes to the way the event is run. In order to become even more sustainable and increase the positive impact of participation, the GGA is doing away with the traditional awards ceremony event and replacing it with a free virtual ceremony for all entrants on 12th July, at which the winners will be announced, and people can learn about the other entrants and their work. This will then be followed by a jam-packed day of purpose-led content happening in person, which will be open to all, with discounted tickets for entrants for 2023.

Karen Sutton, founder of the Global Good Awards said: “We are really shaking things up as we come into our ninth year of the Global Good Awards. We have long felt that the ‘traditional’ way of running awards ceremonies wasn’t best serving the environment or our entrants, so this year we plan to run a virtual event to announce the winners in the summer – saving on travel emissions, costs and people’s time and energy. The Winners’ Showcase: What GOOD looks like in-person event later in the year will include in-depth insight sessions and round table discussions led by winners, judges and industry experts, to give everyone the opportunity to learn how to act faster and hopefully spark new collaborations to accelerate the race to Net Zero. These sessions will also be open for people to join virtually.

“We hope that this new approach, along with our proven track record of recognising the great and the good, will encourage more purposeful organisations from around the world to enter this year’s awards and we look forward to seeing the entries rolling in.”

A new award for Ukraine Crisis Champions is added this year, with a minimum of 10% from entry fees for this category set to be donated to Goods for Good. Other categories include awards to honour the Global Good Company, SME, Start-up Enterprise and Individual Leader of the Year, Community Partnership, Educational Excellence, Environmental Behaviour Change, Game Changing Innovation, Best Product and Campaign of the Year and Technology for Good.
