WIN WIN GOTHENBURG SUSTAINABILITY AWARD
FOR OUTSTANDING CONTRIBUTIONS
TOWARDS A MORE SUSTAINABLE FUTURE
THEME 2024: INCLUSIVE TRANSITION
WIN WIN Gothenburg Sustainability Award is one of the world's leading sustainability awards.
We reward and encourage outstanding solutions to the most urgent challenges facing the world today.
The award of 1 million SEK has been presented yearly since 2000 in Gothenburg, Sweden.
The award is a non-profit organisation financed by members who, like us, are committed to creating a better future. The winners are appointed by an independent jury containing members with diverse backgrounds within academia, politics and civil society. The Global Goals is our guide in the selection of a yearly theme.
Until 15 January, the WIN WIN Gothenburg Sustainability Award accepts nominations for individuals and organisations that have made exceptional efforts in achieving inclusive transitions.
We anticipate nominees to have initiated a change that inspires others, showcasing what is necessary on our path to sustainable and equitable futures.

They go further than the rest of us. They endure a little more. They show us what is possible and guide us in the right direction.
