The winners of Environmental Finance's annual Sustainable Investment Awards for 2021 have been announced.
The awards honour investors and other players in the market who have been leaders in the field of sustainable finance.
The winners were selected by a panel of independent judges, made up of asset owners.
Some of the biggest winners are:
- Aviva which won Re/insurer of the year and TCFD report of the year;
- Another double-winner was Coutts & Co, which won ESG multi-asset fund of the year and Multi-asset manager of the year;
- S&P Global won ESG data initiative of the year and ESG index provider of the year.
Personality of the year was awarded to Faith Ward – chief responsible investment officer of the Brunel Pension Partnership, who has helped make the pension fund a sustainability leader, while simultaneously working with numerous influential bodies to drive change more broadly.
"Congratulations to every one of the winners for the 2021 awards," said Peter Cripps, editor of Environmental Finance. "These awards help recognise your leadership in this important and dynamic field.
"In addition, I would like to thank all of the judges who volunteered their time to help assess the more than 300 entries and vote for their favourites."
