At a ceremony held at the Royal Geographical Institute last Wednesday evening in London, the ten outstanding winners of this year’s Ashden Awards gather on stage to celebrate.

The ten organisations who between them are creating greener homes, cities and transport networks, as well as improving health, reducing poverty and inequality and transforming energy infrastructure, were honoured by Ashden Awards’ founder Sarah Butler Sloss, newly appointed CEO Harriet Lamb, and keynote speaker Mary Robinson, first female President of Ireland and Chair of the Elders, a group of global leaders working for peace, justice and human rights.

The Ashden Awards were a flagship event of the inaugural London Climate Action Week.

The winners were as follows:

Highview Power – Impax Award for Energy Innovations

EQuota Energy – International Award for Sustainable Cities and Buildings

NEF & Energiesprong – UK Award for Sustainable Buildings

London Borough of Waltham Forest – Award for Clean Air in Towns and Cities

Sistema Bio – Award for Clean Cooking

SMV Green Solutions – Award for Sustainable Mobility

In her speech, Mary Robinson said: “We need a climate justice movement that is inclusive of everyone and we must reach a higher moral ground where no one is left behind. The goal is to stay at 1.5 degrees, and to quote Nelson Mandela ‘It always seems impossible until it is done’.”
