RTCC Climate Change Awards

RTCC Awards

RTCC’s annual awards celebrate achievement, innovation and brilliance.

Our International judging panel is supported by a research team that works round the clock to ensure nominations are the most deserving in their sector.

But that’s only part of the puzzle. We rely on reader insight and experience to provide nominations to the International judging panel, and we relish hearing about new experts and burgeoning markets.

Our awards are tailored to provide a comprehensive analysis of the very best in each category.

If you want to tell other readers about a success story and feel that it doesn’t fit into an existing category, suggest a new category and the research panel will happily take a look.

We recognise smaller market participants as well as larger firms adapting international models to unique geographies.

Whether it’s businesses large or small, individuals in niche sectors or a category you think we might be overlooking, we’d love to hear from you.

Key dates

Nominations have now closed for the RTCC 2014 Awards categories.

Thank you for everyone who submitted nominations.

Winners will be contacted directly to arrange attendance in Lima.

Award Categories


RTCC Editor Ed King will chair a panel of 10 judges drawn from the business, NGOs and climate diplomacy communities in early October 2015.

The panel will be split into groups to give the judges ample time to consider all entries and ensure that there are no conflicts of interest. Judges are required to excuse themselves from the process if conflicts of interest arise.

The judges will only consider entries that have confirmed their attendance at the UN Conference of the Parties in Paris, France
