The results are in and the shortlists for the Global Good Awards 2022 are out!
With the highest number of entries from the widest global spread of entrants this year, we are delighted to see some old friends and regulars of the Global Good Awards as well as many first-time applications.
Hubbub has won the most awards in Global Good history and once again has made the shortlist; this time with their creative litter campaign, Neat Streets. We also see the return of Earth Cubs and some of our larger entries such as ITV, KPMG, Samsung, GSK and Aviva as well as many new companies this year.
Now in its third year, the Canon Young Champion of the Year once again has a growing global spread of young changemakers in two age categories – under 16s and under 21s – who, this year, represent initiatives in Africa, Asia, USA, Australia and the Middle East.
Finalists will have the chance to win Gold, Silver or Bronze Awards. Some entries may also be recognised as a One To Watch for their excellent project or initiative but are deemed by judges to be too early into their journey to win a podium place.
The awards categories have remained largely unchanged from 2021. For a second, and most likely final, year we have a COVID Crisis Champions award category this year to recognise and celebrate those organisations that have gone the extra mile in response to the COVID crisis.
You can see all the 2022 GGA finalists here. Winners will be announced at our awards ceremony at BMA House on 13th October. This year will be our first hybrid awards ceremony. After two years of virtual events, we are very much looking forward to welcoming UK-based finalists and guests in person. As much as we would love to welcome everybody on the shortlist, we want to keep the event’s carbon footprint to a minimum so will invite our growing number of overseas entrants to attend the awards via a link online to avoid them flying to the UK for the occasion.
Karen, GGA’s founder, said: “Thanks to our robust, independent judging process, this year’s shortlist is a fantastic mix of initiatives and programmes from organisations of all sizes across a variety of sectors. Our finalists are truly raising the bar in all aspects of sustainability.”
“I’m also thrilled that this year’s entries have generated a £1,620 donation to Cool Earth, our charity partner, which works alongside communities to reduce deforestation, with an emphasis on protecting trees, rather than just planting more.”
