We’re over the moon to announce that the Global Good Awards have been accredited with the OUTSTANDING standard Awards Trust Mark for the sixth year running.
As an independent, not-for-profit accreditation programme, the Awards Trust Mark scheme (run by The Independent Awards Standard Council) looks to enhance trust between those entering awards schemes, and the organisations running them.
In 2018, the GGAs were the first awards programme to achieve a gold standard, as it was then, and we have maintained the highest level of accreditation ever since. We are deeply passionate about being truly fair, ethical, and transparent in all aspects of our awards – and it’s heartening to have this acknowledged for another year.
The Awards Trust Mark is based around a voluntary code of conduct that awards organisers commit to. In doing so, they guarantee their entire programme meets a high standard of ethics and transparency. The need for a standard was first identified by research conducted by Boost Awards, the award writing experts, for the benefit of all stakeholders within the awards industry.
You can read about our own commitment to this here.
“I am really impressed with Global Good’s efforts to transform the awards process. They are always extremely responsive and helpful, and one of the most rigorous awards that I deal with – they know their stuff.”
Global Good Awards entrant
As part of the assessment process, Awards Trust Mark assessors contact randomly selected awards applicants and judges to confirm that the awards programme complied with the required code of conduct.
“The Global Good Awards are unique in that they focus on impact, they recognise those projects and individuals who are rising stars as well those who have ‘made it’ in terms of their results, and they are scrupulously fair, objective and demanding in the standards they expect from the finalists which top their categories. The programme really is a showcase of what ‘good’ can look like, and what others can aspire to, if they have the will and the purpose.”

We genuinely hope that our high standards of conduct act as reassurance to our entrants that we only ever honour the deserving – as we never fail to mention, we reward action, not aims!
