2019 Ashden Award winners revealed
In the UK and around the world, this year’s Ashden Award winners are creating greener homes, cities and transport networks, as well as improving health, reducing poverty and inequality and transforming energy infrastructure. All ten have been chosen after rigorous judging by our energy experts.
We have said ‘this feels like a pivotal year’ many times at previous Awards Ceremonies, for climate action and the move towards a zero-carbon world. But the Climate Emergency movement, Extinction Rebellion, the school strikes, Greta Thunberg, and David Attenborough documentaries have engaged people, businesses and governments to levels we have never seen before.
There is still time to get your tickets for the Ashden Awards Ceremony on 3 July, where Ashden will celebrate their work with a 500 strong audience of policy makers, investors and those working in the sustainable energy and climate change sectors. The Ceremony will be a flagship event of the inaugural London Climate Action Week, held at the Royal Geographical Society in London.
Ashden CEO Harriet Lamb said: “The outstanding organisations that make up our roster of 2019 winners are truly inspirational, bringing much-needed solutions to the table. Their practical but clever and economically feasible innovations are just what we need to address the climate emergency. People are feeling overwhelmed by the scale of the emergency; but these organisations have all shown the face of the possible; now we need to get behind them, scale up the solutions and make them the new norm.”
