The closing date for entries for the ESG Investment Leader Awards is Friday 28th April 2023. Please ensure you complete your entries by this date.

There is no charge to submit an entry for an award/s.

Each company that submits at least 1 award entry by the original submission deadline of 28th April 2023 and is subsequently shortlisted for at least 1 award will be eligible to receive 1 complimentary ticket to attend the awards ceremony on 2nd November. For the avoidance of doubt, if a company enters multiple awards categories, they will still only qualify to receive 1 complimentary ticket to the awards ceremony. Click here for more information on the awards ceremony.

Clear Path Analysis reserve the right to extend the closing deadline, amend categories or retract award categories should the standard of entries received not reach the required standard. You will be notified in writing if anything changes regarding an awards category that you have entered.

Please ensure you read the criteria for the awards you are entering.

Please complete all sections of the form. Entries that are incomplete or exceed the stated word limits in each section will not be accepted.

We ask all entrants to supply at least one company and / or client logo. Please supply this in JPEG or PDF format and upload it with your entry under 2MB.

All completed entries will be acknowledged online at the time of submission.

The organisers do not accept any responsibility for loss or damage of any entry.

We reserve the right to shorten entry titles for the purpose of the awards brochure and winners’ trophies. Please try and keep your entry title concise and to the point.

We will not publish your entries without seeking approval. Winners are sometimes asked following the awards if they are willing to allow their entries to be made public to showcase your work.

Please contact the ESG Investment Leader Awards Team at awards@clearpathanalysis.com, if you need further advice.


The organiser and judges’ decision is final, and no correspondence or discussion will be entered into or feedback given regarding the selection of shortlisted nominations or winners.

Shortlisted entrants will be contacted by email (on the address provided in the application) on the shortlist announcement date.

In the interest of transparency, judges will not judge categories they have entered.

Judges will not allow personal relationships or experiences to influence judging scores or decisions and their judging will be impartial and based on the standard of entry, campaign, organisation or product.

Judges will declare any perceived conflict of interest to the event organisers ahead of reading any entries.

All judging discussions are confidential and will not be shared or discussed with anyone outside of the judging panel ahead of the ceremony or thereafter.

Judges will not share confidential material, judging papers or entries with anyone. Clear Path Analysis will delete all judging materials immediately after the judging period.

Judges can only access entries that they have been provided to score.

Judges will not notify anyone that they have won or that they are shortlisted ahead of the official announcements.

Judges will not provide any feedback to entrants as to why they have not won or were not shortlisted – all requests for feedback must be directed to the awards organiser at awards@clearpathanalysis.com.

The judging panel for the awards can be found here.


Cancellations are not permitted in advance of any event, and therefore no refunds are payable after booking. However, a substitute delegate or guest can be nominated in replacement.

All requests for delegate substitutions must be made in writing to awards@clearpathanalysis.com.
