Powering a fairer future
Applications for 2023 are now closed
For over 20 years, the Ashden Awards have been uncovering and spotlighting the world’s next climate champions. Through grant prizes of up to £25,000, as well as ongoing development support, our awards accelerate climate innovation – helping businesses, charities, governments and others power up their impact in the UK and low-income countries.
We back organisations that advance social justice while lowering emissions, with a particular focus on the power of climate action to improve jobs, skills and livelihoods. Winners and finalists enjoy grants, publicity and priceless new connections- as well as endorsement from globally-recognised climate experts. Meet our past winners here.
Ashden supports proven climate innovation in the UK and developing countries – because on-the-ground solutions will drive the system changes our planet needs.
For two decades the Ashden Awards have accelerated the most exciting climate innovators. We support organisations to win investment, secure partnerships, scale up and inspire others. We believe a safe and fair low carbon future is possible, if trailblazing ideas get the backing they deserve.
Ashden winners come in all shapes and sizes. We don’t reward the biggest organisations or slickest marketing pitches – we’re looking for passion, potential and commitment to our values. We’ve put winners on stage at the COP climate talks and in global media. Where could an Ashden Award take your organisation?
Past speakers at our awards ceremonies include Sir David Attenborough, Al Gore, Wangari Maathai, former President of Ireland Mary Robinson and President of Costa Rica Carlos Alvarado. Live streaming takes our events to a global audience.
