Creating Better Futures Awards
The Creating Better Futures Awards recognise and celebrate impactful initiatives that align with our corporate vision of Creating Better Futures, across our four sustainability priorities:
Supporting climate action by delivering climate resilient infrastructure, investing in energy transition, and decarbonising existing projects – as we work towards net zero emissions across our portfolio by 2050.
Minimising environmental impact of resource consumption and biodiversity loss – creating a more circular world and an environment where plants, animals, and their natural habitats thrive.
Creating positive social impact to help address some of the needs of the communities where our projects operate – beyond our contractual obligations and the inherent benefits our assets deliver.
Promoting fair and safe working practices as well as diverse, equitable and inclusive workplaces – in our own business, portfolio companies, and across our supply chain.
The awards are designed to encourage and celebrate initiatives that deliver meaningful impact within our portfolio. By doing this, we are raising further awareness of the needs and benefits of taking sustainable action on the matters highlighted in our sustainability priorities.
The awards are open to all our portfolio businesses and supply chain partners, and have been designed to create a forum through which best practice can be shared. We are working with these parties to increase the number, scale, and therefore impact, of delivered initiatives and our joint success in achieving this will ensure our awards grow bigger and better each year.
Each submission is assessed against internally developed criteria being: Innovation, Community need, Collaboration and Efficiency.
