Awards solely dedicated to celebrating eco-friendly businesses making a difference.
Sustainability is at the heart of what we do here at Marie Claire UK. From reporting on the brilliant female change-makers tackling climate change head-on, to expert-led guides navigating carbon footprint, ethical fashion brands, and sustainable beauty buys, sharing insight into how to live more sustainably has been one of our core pillars for years.
That’s why we’re so proud to launch our second annual Sustainability Awards, a celebration of the brands, organisations, and products that are genuinely implementing change and building a better tomorrow.
Right now, brands have both the opportunity and responsibility to help consumers navigate their day-to-day lives with products and experiences that are designed with the earth in mind – without greenwashing or misleading.
If you’re a business with purpose, a sustainable start-up shaping its business model to be as ethical as possible, or a company going the extra mile to positively impact our planet, we want to hear from you and celebrate your hard work.
Why? Because never before have our spending habits been so important, and, as we all become more eco-conscious, it’s more important than ever to recognise and celebrate the brands that are acknowledging their environmental and ethical responsibilities – and helping us as consumers to shop smarter and buy better.
Enter now: the second-ever Marie Claire UK Sustainability Awards
To help you start making the small day-to-day decisions that’ll have a lasting impact on our planet, we’ve tasked a trailblazing judging panel, made up of over 50 of the world’s leading experts, thought leaders, and sustainability activists, to select the businesses that are actually committed to effecting change.

An insight into last year’s awards…
Never one to avoid practicing what we preach – or shy away from making history – not only was last year Marie Claire UK’s inaugural Sustainability Awards, it was also our first-ever carbon-neutral awards ceremony. (Yes, even virtual awards generate a carbon footprint.)
So, in partnership with Nula Carbon, we offset our carbon emissions by planting a mangrove tree for every one of our attendees.
