Communicating integrated thinking This award is for organisations that are demonstrating clearly, through communicating to their providers of financial capital, how sustainability, in its broadest sense, is embedded into their overall strategy and decision-making process and how this ‘integrated thinking’ is contributing to a sustainable business model which delivers long term value.
Investing and financing This award is open to the investor and capital markets communities. This includes organisations that oversee, develop or advise on financial products and services AND investors that have driven investment in sustainable outcomes that deliver long term value across capital markets. e.g. investment firms, asset management firms, banks, insurance companies or stock exchanges.
