The Global Good Awards recently partnered with Positive News and their first Global Good article is about our 2022 award winners:
From reducing litter through glow-in-the-dark bins to the company pioneering a low-cost heat pump revolution, these are the winners of the 2022 Global Good Awards.
Sustainability – whether it’s around the environmental impact of the underwear you just bought, or how you heat your home – is a topic on many people’s lips. Although we tend to hear more about the laggards than the leaders, there are scores of people, projects and companies driving real change. Each year, the Global Good Awards champions the best of the best.
In 2022, given the urgency needed, the panel of judges has introduced strict new thresholds and will no longer award ‘gold’, the top level of recognition, solely because an entrant has scored the highest in a category. Instead, the winners will have to reach minimum scores of 80 per cent for gold, 75 per cent for silver and 70 per cent for bronze.
The award programme’s founder, Karen Sutton, says about the decision:
“We’re finally waking up to the enormous mountain we have to climb in this decade. Serious action can and will save our very existence. We cannot wait until 2029 to start.”
