IJGlobal ESG Awards 2023 – open for entry

We are delighted to announce the launch today of IJGlobal ESG Awards 2023 – opening the portal for submissions for an event that, in its third year, has already become a calendar fixture.

The past year has been spent refining categories and communicating with a large group of infrastructure and energy ESG specialists to improve on the process… and we are very pleased with the results.

Through these awards, IJGlobal seeks to identify the infra / energy organisations, transactions and individuals that truly move the dial on the environmental, social and governance front.

They reflect market developments in the last financial year – from 1 April 2022 to 31 March 2023 – and we are very excited, again, to be launching the submissions portal.

As with all IJGlobal awards, we have drawn together an international judging committee – all of them established professionals in the ESG space – to review submissions. We will identify the judging panel in the coming weeks.

Needless to say, judges who have an interest in a transaction or who have a particularly close working relationship with companies that are being judged (or indeed work at the company), will be recused from voting on those submissions to ensure a fair and transparent process.

This will be policed by IJGlobal in the run-up to Judgment Day – which will be held in person in London and over Teams on 6 September – as well as an honesty policy for judges themselves on the day, ensuring an honest and fair process.

At IJGlobal, we pride ourselves on hosting what we believe to be the most transparent, peer-review awards in this sector – which (again to our minds) make them the most valued in the sector.

We have removed any reference to ESG from our other infra / energy awards – IJGlobal Awards (greenfield and refinancing) and IJInvestor Awards (fund activity and M&A) – so that this stands separate and celebrates achievements in this burgeoning space.

We look forward to receiving your submissions in the coming weeks and building a marketing head of steam to celebrate the successes on such an important element that is increasingly central to the way in which infrastructure and energy is delivered across the globe.

The final deadline for submissions is 3 August (2023) and the winners will be revealed at a physical event in late October.
