Celebrating cross-borough leadership in best green practice

Islington Sustainable Energy Partnership (ISEP) and the Camden Climate Change Alliance (CCCA) are coming together to celebrate the achievements of businesses, community organisations and schools, who are leading the way in the delivery of sustainable services and products.

The Camden and Islington Sustainability Awards are an opportunity to cultivate cross-borough collaboration and knowledge exchange at a time when boroughs are moving towards new zero-carbon targets to tackle the climate crisis.

For over 10 years, ISEP and CCCA, London’s unique pioneering sustainability networks, have been working with businesses and other organisations to identify and deliver projects that reduce energy costs, cut carbon emissions and manage environmental impacts.
