Deadline for Submissions 1st September 2015

Investment solutions that take into account social, ethical or environmental criteria are increasingly in demand by investors. Now in their seventh year, Investment Week's Sustainable Investment Awards offer an opportunity to showcase your expertise and commitment to what is an increasingly important sector of the investment industry.

The awards are aimed at fund managers and organisations who are at the forefront of facilitating or investing in these sectors and whose work promotes a greater understanding into the potential of investing in themes such as the environment, ethics, and social responsibility.

Concerns over the environment continue to dominate the headlines as world leaders search for sustainable solutions. Whether it is clean energy, water, forestry or climate change, investors are aware that we need to protect our limited natural resources, produce less waste and invest in more efficient industrial processes.

In addition, socially conscious investors increasingly look to screen how a company performs in terms of its impact on the environment, its social and governance record relating to the management of employee and local community relationships.

Ethical investing continues to be an increasingly popular way of screening out investments such as alcohol and arms, or screening in investments that make a positive impact.

The Sustainable Investment Conference will take place prior to the ceremony in central London on 17th November 2015.
