IJGlobal ESG Awards 2022 – the shortlist

IJGlobal is delighted today to reveal a shortlist for the ESG Awards to recognise developments in the last financial year – April 2021 through March 2022.

This is the second time the IJGlobal ESG Awards have been staged and this year has seen a considerable uptick in submissions on the inaugural event as it beds in and becomes an established date in the industry diary.

All categories – transaction and company awards – were reviewed by the independent panel of judges and IJGlobal is led entirely by their assessment of categories, with their decisions being final.

It should be noted that this shortlist does not represent the full line-up of categories as the judges – in some cases – chose not to reveal a shortlist, opting only to identify the successful entrant.

All of the winners will be revealed at the IJGlobal ESG Awards 2022 awards night – which is to be staged at a physical event on 19 October in the rather glorious settings of the Honourable Artillery Company (HAC) in London.
