Launch of the 2022 Ashden Awards for Climate Innovations

These awards recognise outstanding climate solutions projects in the UK and the developing world.

The Ashden Awards promote exceptional climate solutions and the environmental, social and economic benefits they can provide. For more than 20 years these awards have backed ideas delivering lower emissions, with grants and development support on offer to winners and finalists.

The initiative and its related activities aim to persuade policymakers, funders and the wider public to recognise renewable energy as a tool for addressing the urgent global issues of climate change, pollution and energy supply, as well as the social and economic needs of local communities.

The 2022 Awards aim to boost climate innovators transforming the world of work – those delivering roles and skills for the UK’s low-carbon transition and the spread of clean energy around the world, or making every job a green job.

This year’s award categories include energy innovation, skills in low carbon sectors, greening work, energising agriculture and more. Some categories focus on the UK, and others cover work in low- and middle-income countries.

Winners will receive a prize of up to £25,000 and a package of supplementary support.

Businesses, NGOs, government organisations, social enterprises and community groups are all eligible. Work must be currently available to clients, customers or beneficiaries.

The deadline for applications is 15 March 2022 (23:59 GMT).
