Judging process

The most respected awards are usually those with the best judging process – we hope everyone will acknowledge that the winners were worthy of their Award and that the judging process has been robust.

In the first round of judging, the Environmental Finance editorial team will review the submitted entry material to generate a shortlist of entries.

The shortlist will be put to an independent panel of judges to vote in a secret ballot. All judges are investors from across the globe, each chosen for their knowledge, objectivity and credibility.

The judges' decision is final and neither Environmental Finance nor the judging panel will enter into any correspondence regarding individual entries and/or award winners.

Winners will be announced on the Environmental Finance website in late March 2019 and will be featured in the Spring edition of the magazine. Extracts from the entry could be sourced for inclusion in the Awards write-up and any subsequent editorial coverage. Our editorial team may contact respondents for additional information should any questions arise. Please mark any sensitive information as such.
