The wait is over - meet the 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 that it's time to reveal the winners of our second annual Sustainability Awards, a celebration of the brands, organisations, and products that are genuinely implementing change and building a better tomorrow.

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.

Meet the Marie Claire UK Sustainability Awards winners 2022

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.
