Shortlist of green heroes announced ahead of green-carpet awards ceremony, hosted by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall

The UK’s leading sustainability and ethical awards body – the P.E.A. (People. Environment. Achievement.) Awards has revealed its shortlist of green heroes and changemakers of 2023.

Selected by an all-female panel of judges, the shortlist for 2023’s P.E.A. Awards includes environmental champions across 19 categories, covering Youth and Indigenous Communities, Influencer and Climate Pioneer as well as changemakers in sectors ranging from Arts to Electric Vehicles.

A Lifetime Achievement Award will be presented to an individual whose considerable contributions and passion for change have led them to achieve exemplary long-term success in the field of sustainability.

‘The P.E.A.s are the only awards I know of that really celebrate the individuals – rather than the brands or businesses – who are shaking things up, often against all odds’, said P.E.A. Awards founder Jarvis Smith. ‘The awards are about giving these heroes a great time and the recognition they deserve. The night itself has always had a feel-good factor – aided by plenty of great food, entertainment and free-flowing drinks.

The path to a sustainable future

A sublime three-course vegan dinner will be served to the 400-strong guest list, accompanied by delicious cocktails, organic wines and beers provided by suppliers of My Green Pod Hero drinks.

Limited tickets are available here.

The night’s host, River Cottage’s Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, said: ‘It’s so important to share the ideas that can help set us on a path to a more sustainable future. Some of them – like organic farming and energy from wind and solar – are well-established and just need more support, while others are more complicated solutions to today’s complex and interconnected challenges. The P.E.A. Awards celebrate the pioneers who are looking for new ways to make a positive difference, and I’m really looking forward to meeting the winners on what is set to be a fantastic night!’
